Most teens risk eye infections with nasty contact lens habits, CDC says

Most teenagers and young adults who wear contact lenses have at least one bad habit that raises their risk of a nasty eye infection, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.

These bad habits include not removing their lenses before bedtime, wearing them in the swimming pool and skipping eye doctor visits, the CDC team found.

Germy contact lenses can cause serious eye infections, some of which can lead to blindness.
