Introduction

B18
Infection control is concerned with two main areas. Firstly, transmission from person to person, and secondly, transmission via a contaminated object, such as an ophthalmic device or piece of equipment, or via contaminated contact lens solution bottles or multi-dose eye drops that have been used on another patient. In addition, there are environmental hazards that arise from your disposal of waste (refer to COVID-19 guidance).
