Can I wear contact lenses if I work in a dusty environment?

Contact Lenses and Dust

Those who work in a dusty environment should avoid wearing contact lenses in the workplace. Although there are no laws against this, it is not recommended because the dust can adhere to the lenses and damage the health of the eye. Both the inner eyelids and the cornea can be damaged by debris which adheres to the contact lenses. These workers may wear contact lenses outside the work environment but wearing them on the job can result in discomfort and possibly even more severe problems.
