On my recent blog regarding Contact Lens Health Week I neglected to include the link to the videos on the CDC site even though I provided the link to the videos from AAO.

The following link takes you to the CDC videos about patient stories:  https://www.cdc.gov/contactlenses/videos.html.  I think these personal stories, which tell about the consequences experienced when not following guidelines, would be a great tool for preventing poor habits to form.  Four of the videos listed are less than 3 minutes in length.  The fifth video listed is under 5 minutes.  I hope you tune in to view them and consider including the younger members of your family when you do.  Make it a teaching moment!

  • Ryan’s Story – Water and Contacts Don’t Mix
