    Some people are not suitable to wear contacts such as who got blepharitis as well as severe trachoma, conjunctivitis, keratitis, dry eyes or glaucoma etc. You must wear it after the inflammation cured, especially during the periods when you use the eye drop to heal the disease. The eye drop and the contacts solution will not be compatible with each other for the different contents of chemical. It will do harm to your eyes when they mixed together.

    The blepharities, a chronic inflammation in the eyelash root and blepharities skin, may be caused by unsuitable hygiene, long stimulation of irritating gas or sand, chronic conjunctivities, fragile body and so on. Thus, you'd better not wear the contact lenses which may intensify the inflection. You should go to see the doctor and accept the treatment. After it is treated, you can wear the contact lenses again.

    You had better not wear contact lenses at this moment. Blepharitis occurs when your eyelids are infected by an excess increasing of bacteria. It's a common eye condition that you would always feel something in your eyes. It couldn't be cured, however, it can be controlled and treated by proper cleaning ways, such as cleaning your eyes during a certain period, wash your hands frequently, do not touch your eyes. You have to touch your eyes when you inserting your contact lenses, and it's easy for you to bring bacteria or other harmful virus into your eyes to make blepharitis more serious. On the other side, it's not convenient for you to treat blepharitis when you are wearing contact lenses.
