Is it safe to wear contact lenses during high transmission periods of COVID-19?

As you may or may not know, often germs are passed and viruses are transmitted through contact with the eyes. Washing and disinfecting your hands before touching your colored contact lenses each time is a really important care step for everyday use. Particularly when working at avoiding illness, this becomes absolutely critical! Proper care and cleaning of your colored contacts, as well as good handwashing techniques are a great way to combat this.
