Remember no matter where you live, how old you are or what kind of contact lenses you wear, AK (Acanthamoeba Keratitis) can get in your eye!

So please do not assume it will not be you. Water and Contact lenses don’t mix #waterandcontactsdontmix  (meaning: never shower, swim, wash or store them in water, and touch them with wet hands).
