"Eye clinic"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

I was treated very promptly for suspected Achanthomeba keratitis by two doctors. If it wasn't for them I would have lost my vision to this frightening condition- bravo ! All contact lens wearers should not sleep, swim or shower in contact lenses Any contact with tap water, fresh water should be avoided and opticians should point out to contact lens users that multipurpose contact lens cleaning solutions are not going to guarantee 100% protection from nasty bacteria and bugs. I used to have monthly contact lenses and although I used to receive a box containing a 3 month supply of lenses I only received one contact lens case. The case is a breeding ground for bacteria so in my opinion should be replaced regularly
