Is it possible to contract HIV if an object is used to test the pressure in your eyes was previously used on an infected person?
| Response from Ms. Southall
Hi No it is not possible. HIV transmission occurs through a direct exchange of body fluid, blood, semen, vaginal fluid or mother to child through breast feeding. You cannot get HIV from an inanimate object or by sharing utensils or kissing.
Be well, Shannon
