The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates roughly 41 million Americans use contact lenses. According to a new report presented by the CDC, nearly all contact lens wearers embark on risky behavior involving their contacts. Such behavior can increase a person’s risk of eye infections and complications related to contact lenses.

In the CDC press release researchers claim that more than 99 percent of survey respondents reported at least one risky behavior regarding contacts. Risky behavior with contacts include wearing them during sleep, adding new solution to old solution or wearing contact lenses for longer than the recommended time. The CDC reports that such risky behavior increases the risk of eye infections five times or more.
