According to a study released at the British Contact Lens Association's (BCLA) conference earlier this month, 98 percent of all contact lens wearers in seven major European countries do not follow the suggested time limit for wearing their soft lenses. The study was done by Dr. Philip Morgan, Eurolens' research director at the University of Manchester and was supported by Bausch & Lomb. It surveyed 1,402 contact lens wearers through an online questionnaire in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Spain and Poland. The study found that of the people surveyed, 66 percent had been wearing their two-week soft lens longer than 14 days. Only 2 percent of the survey's participants said they were fully compliant with the suggested wearing guidelines for contact lenses, while 81 percent said they believe wearing soft lenses poses a greater risk of eye infection.
