lentes de contacto
Oct 15, 2001

se puede transmitir el virus vih si he tocado restos de sangre con las manos, me limpio solo con agua (sin jabon), y de inmediato me pongo/quito unas lentes de contacto (en los ojos hay heridas microscopicas)? gracias.

Response from Dr. Santana

No, se necesita una cantidad del virus mayor y un contacto mas prolongado con el lente
