    Well, it is hard to say this, for if Keratitis can come back. So just pay more attention to it. As we know that Keratitis is the medical term for inflammation of the cornea. Also, you should know that Keratitis is the eye condition in which the cornea becomes inflamed. And in most cases, it has many potential causes. Generally speaking, various types of infections, dry eyes, injury, and a large variety of underlying medical diseases may all lead to keratitis. So if you wear contact lenses after you have got Keratitis, your eyes will be infected again, and in this way, it will just increase the risk of getting Keratitis. So just be careful. And also, blurred vision and red eyes can be the symptom of Keratitis.

    No, you'd better not wear contact lenses after keratitis because you may get the infection at the eyes again. As we know, we should only wear the contact lenses under the situation of healthy eyes. If there is any problem for your eyes, you'd better not wear the contact lenses which may cause your eyes get dry and get infection easily.

    Keratitis is one of the most common infections with our eyes and it could give rise to a lot of uncomfortable feelings to us. So, once got it we must be careful so as not to get it worse and activate more infections. I recommend that you do not wear them before you fully recover, maybe the doctor will give you some good tips.
