Contact Lens Replacement Schedules

Posted by CooperVision on Tuesday, September 20, 2011
The American Optometric Association recently published research findings from their annual Eye-Q® survey. They found that a generational gap in habits and awareness exists when it comes to contact lens wear.

How often do you replace your contact lenses? The survey results show that younger generations are more likely to follow their contact lens replacement schedule and general wear and care guidelines more so than older generations. The replacement schedule is the length of time your contacts can be worn before they need to be replaced with new lenses (taking them out at nighttime is a given, unless your lenses are approved for extended wear). An array of replacement schedules is available - CooperVision offers contact lenses on a Daily, Two-Week, and Monthly replacement schedule - for more information, please click here.

To keep your eyes healthy, always follow your replacement schedule, unless otherwise directed by your eye care practitioner. For more information and to read more survey results, please click here.
