    No, you'd better not wear the contact lenses after the conjunctivitis. You need to wait for about one week of general recovery. Wearing contact lenses right now will affect your recovery. You'd better wait for a week. During this time, you should not smoke or drink which will make the situation get serious. You should have the good rest for the eyes.

    Yes, you shall not wear contact lenses when you suffer from conjunctivitis. As you said, it seems your eyes cured, but not for sure. So, i suggest you not wear contact lenses, or it may possible cause re-infection again. You can visit an eye doctor again to check if your eyes are totally cured. if your eyes are completely cured, you can try contact lenses again.

    Well, it seems that you were told not to wear contacts. Anyway, that is correct because your eye health does not allow you to risk that. And since there would be some lasting impacts from conjunctivitis, you had better not to wear contact lenses before it is sure that your eyes are fully recovered. Just try to protect your eyes and pay more attention and care,
