Are contacts safe during COVID?

I get this question a lot when I've seen patients,

Dr. Woo, are contact lenses safe to use during the pandemic?

So contact lenses are safe to use. Now we just have to maintain good hygiene. Not that we didn't have to maintain good hygiene before the COVID era. But nowadays we have to be extra cautious and careful. We want to avoid touching the eyes and face if we don't have to. And then definitely just wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.
