Please read our important medical disclaimer.

I have wet macular degeneration (a disease that causes vision loss when the macula, in the back of the eye, grows abnormal blood vessels) and am currently getting injection treatments every month. After my treatments drop off, can I resume wearing daily contact lenses?

Yes, there is no problem wearing contact lenses after an injection. However, the eye may be sore for a day or two after the injection, so waiting until the eye feels back to normal is a good idea.
