1-Day Contact Lenses are Great For Travel

Whether you travel a little or a lot, it’s hard to deny the convenience and cleanliness of using 1-day disposable contact lenses.

You also don’t have to worry about packing large bottles of contact lens solution that don’t meet security screening standards.

Contact Lens Corner: It's probably time to change your contact lenses

Time to Change your Contact Lenses-StoneWire-Optometry-Kingsway-Mall-Edmonton.jpg

Are you like most contact lens wearers who forget to dispose of their contact lenses on time? Then it may be time to find a solution. Over wearing or extending the life of your contact lenses can lead to increased contact lens intolerance, dry eye sensation, and blurry vision. Waiting to change your contact lenses until they become uncomfortable is an eye infection waiting to happen.

If you wear a 2-week disposable contact lens like Acuvue Oasys or Acuvue Advance, then change them with every paycheck. If you wear a 1-month disposable contact lens like Air Optix Aqua Comfort Plus or Biofinity, then change them on the first or last day of every month.

The alternative to these extended contact lens modalities is to also consider switching into a 1-day disposable contact lens like Dailies Aqua Comfort Plus, Acuvue 1-Day Moist, Acuvue TruEyes or the all new Dailies Total 1 and enjoy a clean new contact lens every day.

If technology is more your thing, consider joining Acuminder by the makers of Acuvue Brand contact lenses. This online tool allows you to schedule text message or email reminders for when it’s time to change your contact lenses.
