Do You Follow Your Lens Replacement Schedule?

How often do you replace your contact lenses? In a recent study conducted by the American Optometric Association, they found that there are generational gaps in habits and awareness when it comes to contact lens wearers.

The survey revealed that younger generations are much more likely to follow their contact lens replacement schedule, as well as their wear and care guidelines. Whereas older generations were more lax about both. In case you’re unfamiliar, the replacement schedule is the length of time your lenses can be worn before they need to be replaced with new contacts. Depending of the type of contact you use, there are a variety of replacement schedules, from daily, to two-week, to monthly or longer, so it’s important to know what your contacts require. 

To maintain your eyes’ health, it’s vital to always follow your replacement schedule, unless otherwise directed by your eye care professional.
