Q: Can people with glaucoma or macular degeneration wear contact lenses?

A: People with these conditions can wear contact lenses. In macular degeneration no drops are used, so no problem there.
In glaucoma, drops are used. So, the lenses should only be used when drops are not used. For example, a lot of glaucoma patients are on one or two times a day doses of drops. Thus the lenses could be inserted after the morning drops and taken out before the bedtime drops.
