Jay Ghadiali, Director of Professional Services Vision Express said: "The risks of wearing contact lenses are very small and the benefits worthwhile, but the need to educate the British contact lens wearers on aftercare is critical as this is what can lead to infection or long-term issues for wearers. We're proud to support Love Your Lenses Week, as the eye health of our customers and their families is our absolute priority so we've picked the brains of our optical leads across the country to collate their top tips on caring for your contact lenses."
