Wanderlust: travelling and contact lenses

I love travelling and the tropics are one of my favourite destinations. Great food, bath tub warm seas and beautiful beaches. However travellers wearing contact lenses should be extra careful in tropical climes. The warmth and humidity are great environments for fungi, amoebi and bacteria to flourish, and a contact lens related infective ulcer can bring a rapid end to your holiday and worse still, permanent loss of vision in some cases.
