Contact Lens Health Week

If you like to take a break from your eyeglasses every now and then, contacts are a convenient and comfortable option if taken care of properly. August 21st to the 25th is Contact Lens Health Week! To celebrate, we are offering 15% off contacts all week on our sister site, DiscountContacts.com, with code CLHW15! Learn these essential tips before making the switch to contact lenses:

  • Always Wash Your Hands: This may seem obvious, but it needs to be emphasized. Before handling your contact lenses or accessories, make sure to always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Never Use Water: Don’t rinse or store your contacts in water—ever. Water contains a lot of microorganisms and will not disinfect your contacts.
  • Remove Contacts Overnight: Don’t sleep in your contacts unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. Your cornea won’t receive enough oxygen overnight and can get infected. Trust us—it’s not worth it to leave them in (no matter how tired you are).
  • Replace Contact Lens Case: It doesn’t matter how clean it may look, you should replace your contact lens case at least once every three months to avoid bacterial growth.
  • Don’t Wear Contacts for Longer Than Prescribed: Know your contact lens replacement schedule. If you wear your contacts for longer than instructed, it could result in pain, irritation, bacterial infections, and even vision loss.

Follow these health tips and you’ll be good to go! If you fall in love with wearing contacts, you should still switch to glasses at least once a week to give your eyes a break.

TERMS & CONDITIONS: 15% Off Sale: Valid on contact lenses and accessories. Certain brand exclusions apply—see site for additional details.
