So about two days ago, i was trying to fix my inside out contact lens in the bathroom when i dropped them on the floor. Without any solution, i decided to use bottled water to wash them. I did not know that you weren't supposed to do that!

Its been two days, and so far no noticeable symptoms. Im crazy nervous right now though.Can hardly sleep, and all i've been so worried about this. I really DO NOT want to go blind just because of one stupid mistake i made.

 

Do you think that i got acanthomoeba keratitis from washing my contacts with bottled water? What should i do? In the future, i'm never gonna wash my contacts with water again!

 

Thanks!
