Women who wear contact lenses have been offered some safety tips with regards to applying makeup.
Web MD issued advice for women who wear contact lenses and makeup at the same time and said that it is important not to let things such as foundation come into contact with the vision correction products.
"Put in your contact lenses before applying makeup to avoid contaminating your contact lens. When removing your makeup be sure that you wash and dry your hands. Once you have done this, remove your contact lenses and then remove your makeup," the source advised.
It also called on people to clean their contact lens case after each use with sterile solution and let it dry naturally.
Recently, Patience Akumu, writing for the Ugandan Observer, noted that contact lens wearers require higher daily hygiene standards than glasses wearers when it comes to the issue of storing the products.
