Changing your contact lenses on time means that you will have not only healthier eyes, but fresh and luminous eyes as well. First, let’s talk about why a fresh contact lens is important. Contact lenses tend to collect something known as protein deposits over time. Protein exists in your tears naturally.
Over time, these proteins deposit themselves on your contact lenses, which can cause your vision to be cloudy. Protein deposits can degrade lens surface quality and may stimulate an immune response, which means your eyes can start to get itchy, watery, and irritated if there are too many protein deposits.
What can you do to make sure that your contact lenses and your eyes stay fresh and healthy?
Stick to your recommended contact lens replacement schedule as recommended by your eye doctor.
When you follow your recommended replacement schedule, you keep your eyes happy, healthy, and bright. CooperVision has contact lenses in every replacement schedule. No matter what your lifestyle needs are, CooperVision has a contact lens for you. If you would like to learn more about what contact lens is right for you, check out our Find The Right Lens tool.
Follow a routine
If you replace your contact lenses the same day of the week, you are more likely to remember to replace them on time.
Set up a reminder
If you have trouble remembering to replace your contact lenses, make sure to set up an alert on your phone, calendar, or planner.
Consider an annual supply
If you purchase an annual supply of your contact lenses, you have the lenses you need on the days that you need to replace them. It makes things simpler for you.
