Are you a contact wearer?   Experts are suggesting that you should stop putting in your contacts and start wearing your glasses instead, in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology,  wearing glasses can help you stop touching your face which is a key way any virus is spread.   Dr. Thomas Steinemann, spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology says that contact lens users not only touch their eyes to put in and remove their lens twice or more a day, they also touch their eyes and face much more than people who don't wear contacts.
