Fill your lens case with fresh solution every time you store your lenses, and never “top-off” or re-use solution. Discard your solution immediately after your lenses have been removed from the lens case.
Lenses prescribed for single-use disposable wear are to be discarded after each removal.
Caring for and Cleaning the Lens Storage Case
It is essential to follow all labeling instructions for proper contact lens wear and care—and this includes the lens case.
- Clean and rinse your lens case with contact lens disinfecting solution each time you remove your lenses. Allow time to air-dry.
- To permit excess solution to drain, flip over your lens case while air drying.
- Replace your lens case at least once every 3 months or as directed by your eye care practitioner.
