Eyes ulcers may be more than twice as common as in past studies, according to a recent review of a million people in Northern California. Moreover, contact lens wearers were about 9 times more likely to develop the condition compared to non-wearers and women Contact Lens wearers were twice as likely as their male counterparts. The rise in disposable and overnight wearing contacts and the ease of Internet ordering are potentially dangerous, according to Dr. Gritz. Please do not take the wonders of contacts for granted. Call us if you have any problems, keep your scheduled re-evaluation visit and do not rely on Internet vendors who know nothing about you.
