Soap and water is the better alternative to hand hygiene in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. The World Health Organization recommends 20 seconds of washing hands with soap and running water, especially after visiting public spaces or after coughing, sneezing, or blowing the nose. An alcohol-based sanitizer with 60% alcohol can also be used to effectively eliminate the virus. However, fixing your lenses after using the sanitizer can cause discomfort as the alcohol may affect the eye.
