Contact Lenses: Why it is ILLEGAL to buy lenses without a prescription11:48 PM
Leave it to Friday to get my most shocking patient admittance of the week. At this point in my career, not much is surprising me anymore. People routinely admit to grossly overwearing contact lenses. Heck, I have even seen people put their contact lenses in their mouth right in front of me before putting them in their eyes. I talk to my patients about any risks in their contact lens practices, but not much takes me by surprise anymore.
