To say that life feels a bit different these days would be an understatement. We're having to change our daily routines and ways of life in order to look after ourselves and our loved ones. However, especially during this time of uncertainty, there can be a lot of unreliable stories out there, and knowing what to trust can be challenging. Recent reports have stated that contact lens wearers should switch to glasses during the COVID-19 outbreak. But, as the General Optical Council confirms, that couldn't be further from the truth.
