When you use an indoor tanning device, be it a home tanning bed, a tanning canopy, a tanning lamp, or a commercial tanning bed or booth at a salon, it is critical that you take steps to protect your eyes. Wearing contact lenses during indoor tanning is fine as long as the eyes are both kept closed and FDA-approved protective eyewear is worn throughout the tanning session.
