Avoid extending contact lens life

It’s not the goal of good lens care to make your contact lenses last longer — and it defeats your purpose to try. It’s important to replace your contact lenses on the schedule recommended by your eyecare professional and manufacturer. Fortunately, because contact lenses come in convenient and affordable multipacks, you can replace lenses regularly — and there are distinct advantages to this. Despite your best efforts at proper lens care, there are persistent microorganisms that can cause eye infections, and replacing lenses daily, weekly, bi-monthly or monthly is the best way to eliminate the possibility that these harmful “bugs” can latch onto your contact lenses and irritate or infect your eyes. Also, replace your lens case regularly, just to eliminate that as a potential source of infection.

Remember the three lens care steps!
Clean, rinse and disinfect your contact lenses each and every time they are removed from your eyes!

Proper contact lens care promotes eye health!
