Health Tip for Contact Lens Wearers

If you wear contact lenses, you want to make sure you are doing all you can to keep your eyes healthy. I thought I was doing right by closing my contact lens case every morning after putting in my lenses. I guess I was wrong. I didn't realize that a dark and moist closed case is the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria to grow. Two things you definitely don't want in your eyes since they could cause major discomfort, or even worse an infection.

So if you wear contact lenses, after putting them in your eyes be sure to leave your case open and dump out the old solution so it can dry fully between uses. It's also a good idea to boil your case in water for ten minutes once every couple of weeks to get rid of any gross stuff that may be growing in the case. Many solutions come with new cases, so when you go through a bottle of solution, use the new case that comes with it and toss your old one.

Let me know if you already do this in the comment section below.
