Health Tip: Replace Contact Lens Case Every Three Months

You only get one pair of eyes so it's important to care for them as best you can. If you wear contact lenses, here's one thing you can do to keep your lenses clean and prevent eye infections. Every three months (at least) replace your case with a new one. In between replacements, disinfect the case after every use by rinsing it with your sterile contact lens solution. Then leave it open to air dry to prevent bacteria from growing. When was the last time you changed contact cases?

i guess they made for left handed people, i find it very difficult to open in comparison to the one i already have.

How can a contact case be uncomfortable? It is a plastic case that holds your contacts? The designer ones are cute, but I see them everywhere now, so they shouldn't be too hard to replace--and when it comes to your eyes it seems to be more than worth it. I have horrible eye problems, and when I can wear contacts have to use hydrogen peroxide solution. The containers are upright, and one comes in every box of solution.

i have one funky designer container and i'm not switching. most opticians have uncomfortable and ugly ones, i can never find the same one i already have. this kind http://behance.vo.llnwd.net/profiles/81125/projects/154874/811251228426317.jpg are the crappiest and somehow these are the ones that come with most solutions

I replace mine every other month because otherwise they get gross. You can never be too careful when it comes to your contact lenses.
