Many people who experience problems with their vision decide to wear contact lenses in the place of glasses for the simple matter of convenience. With contacts you can run, play and be active without having to worry about damage to your eyeglass frames or lenses. But with contacts comes maintenance. It is highly important that you keep your contacts cleansed and sterilized in order to minimize the risk of infections, abrasions and corneal ulcerations. Keeping your contacts clean means proper care with both a contact solution and a contact case. Contact cases come in many different brands and styles from pop top varieties to those with screw top lids. Some cases need special solutions in order to work properly, so make sure to follow the instructions on the case when storing your contacts. Also, it's always best to make sure you consult with your optometrist to be sure you are purchasing a contact case that will work best for your needs.
Storing Your Contacts Safely
If you are one of the many people who have made the decision to wear contact lenses, then you know that safety and cleanliness is key. The most essential tool to keeping your contact lenses clean while they're not in your eyes is a contact lens case. Contact cases come in a wide variety of styles. There are the traditional cases with the two cups held side by side that come with either pop top lids or screw top caps. But there are also cylindrical cases available that come with a cage affixed to a screw top lid that holds the lenses in place as they sit in the solution. Walgreens has a wide variety of contact cases available so whichever type you need, you're sure to find it here. It's a good idea to check with your optometrist before you settle on a contact case. Your doctor can help you determine which type of contact cleaning solution will work best for you and your contacts, and, thus, which contact case will also best suit your needs.
