Swimming and Contact Lens Recommendations

Swimming and Contact Lens Recommendations Swimming with your contact lenses on, is possible but very risky. When swimming on lakes and rivers, there is a huge possibility for a microorganism called acanthamoeba to adhere to your lens, causing infection and inflammation of your cornea (acanthamoeba keratitis), which can lead to vision loss and possibly blindness. In the pool, eye irritation is possible when chlorine sticks on the surface of your lens.
