How To Set Replacement Lenses Schedule
Are you looking for a way to remember when to change your contact lenses after 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 1 year ?
There are many types of contact lenses on the market today: Daily, Monthly, Yearly and etc…
If you choose to wear monthly or yearly contact lenses for your fashion style, then replacement of contact lenses should be religiously observed by the contact lens wearers.
Contact lenses have expiration dates just like all other products. The expiration date of our Korean contact lenses is one year from the date the contact lenses are opened. Over wearing contact lenses or wearing expired contact lenses can increase the risk for eye infections and corneal ulcers. These conditions can develop very quickly and have very serious results as blindness but luckily they are also very easy to avoid if you take care of your eyes accessories.
Our contact lenses are 1 year disposable but we recommend to wear them only 6 months maximum for the best eye care, because after 6 months it’s hard for most people to be sure that they took a very good care of their lenses.
Proteins, calcium, lipids and other substances that are found naturally in our tears can build up on the lenses. Even if you are following your care instructions perfectly, keep in mind that cleaning and disinfecting solutions are not 100% effective to clean all the build up proteins on the lenses.
Although these lenses are safe, the longer you wear the lenses the faster the proteins and all substances will build up.
It is therefore important to replace your contact lenses frequently in order to prevent discomfort or any allergic reactions.
