How to Clean Your Contact Lens Case

Keeping your contact lens case clean on a daily, weekly and monthly basis is essential to the health of your contact lenses and to your vision overall. Because contact lens cases can be a source for bacteria growth, it’s important to establish a regular cleaning routine to avoid the possibility of an eye infection. Following proper care instructions and using the recommended lens solution helps protect your lenses from germs and allows for clear and comfortable vision throughout the day.
