Athletes Blinded by Horrible Eye Infection from Wearing Contact Lenses in the Shower, Warns Others



Contact lenses are not for everyone, but if you use them, you need to strictly observe eye hygiene to avoid nasty organisms that get up in your eye. Just ask this man from the UK who lost sight of an eye because of it.

Nick Humphreys, 29, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, plays amateur football and he needs glasses. Playing contact sports that wear glasses seems to be dangerous, so it is natural that players who need glasses should choose contacts. "In the middle of my twenties, I really started throwing myself in training and at that time I thought my glasses were a huge obstacle," he explained.

He exceeded his fear of using contact lenses and after turning to them, he would wear them most days. "On a regular morning I would wake up, snap in my lenses and go to the gym before work, then I jump in the shower before I go to the office," he said, reported by The Sun.
