Hello Mutiara, Thank you for your question.
Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii that is found in cat feces, meat that has not been eaten, or milk products that have not been pasteurized. This parasite can also cause infection in the eye, usually in the retina of the eye. Infection in the eye can cause inflammation in the eye and leave scar tissue in the eye which can further interfere with vision. If this infection also attacks the cornea (the front of the lens of the eye), this infection also causes inflammation of the cornea of the eye so you are strongly discouraged from using contact lenses. The use of contact lenses can further cause inflammation of the cornea, causing pain in the eye. In addition, if your contact lenses are not clean, this condition can cause other infections in your cornea. Inflammation and further infection in the cornea of the eye can cause further problems and interfere with healing. It's best for a while, avoid using contact lenses and wearing glasses. If you feel uncomfortable using glasses, you can visit the opik to make adjustments to your glasses so that your glasses are more comfortable when used. Please take your treatment according to doctor's orders. Do not hesitate to consult an eye specialist immediately if you feel that there is no change in symptoms or the symptoms get worse, for example, pain gets worse or vision is impaired.
Hopefully this information is useful.
