This: This could be a fit issue where debris is being trapped. It could also be the gpc as previously mentioned. I also see similar issues with severe lid inflammation and contact lens use - make sure you are cleaning your eyelids very well each day. I also feel patients that use make-up around the eyes need to be careful with contact lens use. It is amazing the amount of make-up that makes its way into the tear film. ...Read more

Can you wear contact lenses with muro 128 if you wait 15 minutes after using. How many minutes should you wait to put in glaucoma drop after muro drop?
Yes: My advice with any ocular prescribed medication is to wait a minute of 5' between drop instillation.

Don't use the Muro ointment with contacts though. You may use it at bedtime. ...Read more

Depends: This depends on what you mean by always. If you mean everyday, then it is ok as long as you handle the lenses properly.

Should Be Safe: It should be safe to wear contact lenses in a sauna. This is a temporary and usually humid environment, so it would be compatible with the ocular and contact lens surface.

Not necessarily: Contact lenses can be worn safely in children as long as they are handled appropriately, are cleaned regularly, and are removed as directed by an eye doctor. You should weigh the ability of your child (and you) to properly care for the lenses and the potential risk of infection against their discomfort and social stigma from wearing glasses when deciding whether to allow them to use contacts. ...Read more
