Contact lenses are among the safest forms of vision correction when you follow the proper wearing instructions. However, when you don't use lenses as directed, the consequences may be dangerous. Always stick to the recommended replacement schedule provided by your Optometrist.
Use your calendar – paper or electronic – to remind yourself to replace your lenses. And when you open a new box of lenses, write your ‘fresh lens' date on the individual lens packages.
