I get infections with my contact lenses, is that ok ?

If you are prone to infections with contact lenses, you should seriously consider eyeglasses or lasik surgery. I have not seen many severe infections after lasik (although they can happen on rare occasions) but have seen many bad infections from contact lenses. Every few years a contact lens infection epidemic breaks out and many people get severe infections sometimes necessitating corneal transplants (link). No such epidemics have been reported with lvc. There is no correlation between having an infection with a contact lens and having one with lvc.
