Ophthalmologist Questions Contacts

Can contacts cause an infection?

I want to switch to contacts because I'm tired of wearing glasses. But I'm worried that they may cause an infection if I don't take care of them properly. First, are infections a risk with contacts? Second, what can I do to prevent them?

Yes. At least twice per day and hundreds of opportunities for infection each year.
