Is it safe to cook and wear contacts?

There’s a common myth about contact lenses that they can melt whilst exposed to the heat of cooking. However, this isn’t true. The indirect heat of cooking is nowhere near hot enough to melt contact lenses. Therefore, it is safe to cook and wear contact lenses at the same time.

We hope this has been helpful for you when it comes to showing you some of the benefits of wearing contact lenses and cooking. If contact lenses sound like the thing for you, why not book an eye test with our optometrists or browse our range of contacts if you’re already a wearer.
