      Contact lenses are like underwear : Don’t over-wear. Avoid that sketchy pair. Carry a spare. Not caring for your underwear can lead to nasty smells, but not caring for your contacts can lead to nasty eye infections. 1. Don’t over-wear. Replace your contacts as often as your eye doctor tells you, and don’t sleep in them (unless your eye doctor says otherwise). TIP: Clean your case with solution daily, and get a new case at least every three months. 2. Avoid that sketchy pair. If a contact comes out and you can’t disinfect it with fresh solution (never water or spit) right away, throw it out. Don’t buy con­tacts from costume shops or anywhere that doesn’t require a prescription. 3. Carry a spare pair (of glasses). If you need to take out your contacts for an unexpected late night or trip to the pool, or if a contact comes out, have a pair of glasses as a backup. TIP: Take out your contacts before showering, swimming, or hot tubbing. Cover your butt. Take care of your eyes. CD244747-E
