The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has named August 22-26, 2016 as Contact Lens Health Week. When used and cared for properly, contact lenses are an incredible medical device that allows us to see clearly without glasses as well as help transform our look. They also provide a boost in self esteem for teenagers and young adults. However, when mistreated, they can produce a myriad of problems with our eyes and can even lead to blindness in severe cases. All week long we will be updating this post with articles, news, and thoughts about safe contact lens wear.

Contact lens solutions are not all created equal. Check out this post we did a few years ago for an introduction to the subject and why it is important to use a premium branded solution to rinse, clean and store your contact lenses. We know that price is usually a factor when purchasing your lens solutions, so for the entire week we will be taking 30% off of our Optifree PureMoist 16 oz bottles, Clear Care 16 oz bottles, and TSA friendly travel size bottles of Optifree PureMoist.
