Yes, if you are able to wear them safely. The CDC has recommended that contact lens wearers switch to glasses. If you choose to continue wearing your contacts during this time, there are some good hygiene tips I recommend to keep you safe.
1. Wash your hands with soap and water with a scrubbing action for at least 20 seconds.
2. Disinfect your lenses at night.
Use a multipurpose solution such as Biotrue, Puremoist or Revitalens, or use a peroxide system such as Clear Care. Clean your lenses upon removal. Cleaning involves rubbing both surfaces for 10-15 seconds then rinse with your solution before storing them in your case overnight. This is the most important step in your lens care because it disinfects your lenses.
Another option is to consider Dailies disposable lenses. Each day a new pair of lenses are inserted and the old ones are thrown away. No solution is ever needed!
Having a backup pair of glasses is very important. If you don't have a pair, I highly recommend that you get them. Your eyes need a break from wearing lenses all day and glasses should be worn in the evening.
If you get any kind of infection, it is important that you have glasses to wear until it is resolved.
Your vision is important to me and I want you to take good care of your eyes and practice good hygiene.
