Can I ride a bike wearing contact lenses?

Q: Can I ride a bike wearing contact lenses? Wont the dust particles enter my eyes if I do this? Can the lenses be continuously worn for more than 12 hours? Is laser treatment for eyes harmful?

A:If you wear contact lenses you can invest in a pair of reliable sun-glasses that can protect your eyes. A whole variety of sun-glasses are available in various shapes and sizes. Something that wraps around the sides of the face to protect the eyes would be suitable. Contact lenses can be worn safely for 6 hours or longer.
