Default Air Optix Night & Day Aqua Contacts and Tap Water - Bad Idea

I hope we all know here that rinsing and/or storing your contact lenses in ordinary tap water is a bad idea. Have any of you learned that from experience? Can you give us some scary stories that will "inspire" us to rinse our contacts properly?

Yeah, that's a good one. You know I bet the model started laughing when she finished posing.

I can. We have a 25 year old female that has gone blind in her right eye due to misuse of ctl. Wearing ctl in the shower exposes the eye to acanthamobe and if you don't know what that is, google it. It is horrible and lives in the water here in the USA. Never ever wear your ctl in the shower, tub, hot tub, or pool.
