What should I do with my contact lenses after being treated for pink eye?

Answers from Dennis Robertson, M.D.

If you use disposable contact lenses, your doctor may suggest, as part of the management of your pink eye, that you throw out contacts you've worn. If your lenses aren't disposable, disinfect them as usual before reusing them. Ask your doctor if you should discard and replace your contact lens accessories, such as the lens case and lens solution used before or during the illness.
