To help reduce your chance of developing corneal opacity, take the following steps:
- Take care to avoid injuring the eye. Wear eye protection during any potentially dangerous activity. Make sure the safety goggles are worn tight against the face, otherwise a foreign body can fly up under the goggles and injure the eye.
- Take proper care of contact lenses, and follow your doctor’s recommendations regarding wear and cleaning.
- See your doctor immediately if you suspect you have an eye infection, including conjunctivitis (pink eye), if you injured your eye, or if you develop any pain or change in vision.
