    People who wear contact lenses are at risk for developing a corneal ulcer. Other risk factors include participation in activities that may result in damage to your eye, which include contact sports; exposure to chemicals and eye conditions, which include dry eye or Bell’s palsy, a condition that keeps the eye from closing properly. Contact lens wearers should also clean their contact lenses regularly. The best way to prevent a corneal ulcer is to protect your eyes, especially when you are participating in activities that may result in trauma to your eyes. If you wear contacts, you should follow the recommendations of your eye doctor with regards to the length of time you are able to wear your contacts.
