Contact lenses change-up reminder

Hello-Kitty-Contact-Lens-Case-Dual-Double-Box-Lens-Soaking-Case-lens

I’m not even going to tell you how often I used to change by two-week contact lenses — my goal was to stretch out how long I’d wear a pair (they’re expensive, yo!) so let’s just say they were going through a marathon’s worth of wear.

(I’m currently testing out Acuvue dailies as my eyes are apparently on the dry side. And even though I attempted to make last longer, you simply can’t wear save them to wear more than a day as they feel terrible on Day 2, so I don’t need any reminders to ditch and change them every day. And yes, I really did actually try to stretch out their use. Um, don’t tell my eye doctor.).

Now for those of you lens-wearers who have the type you wear for two weeks or monthly, there’s a handy new tool so you stay on track with your lenses changes, your lense-case changes (cute Hello Kitty ones above, non?), and your eye doctor appointments. Register for the just-launched-in-Canada Acuminder tool online and you’ll get friendly reminder emails; in a study, it found that the email reminders helped two-weekers change their habits from ripping open a new pair every 19.9 days to 14.7 days.

    Cool idea. I never know when to change because I forget when I put them in. I need this help.

      I purposely use mine longer…but I think getting a reminder email would maybe guilt me into using them as directed :)
