Posted by admin | December 12, 2015

If you have recently made the decision to start wearing contacts, you want to make sure you have the case that works best for you. Perhaps you have been wearing contacts for some time now, but are looking for a change in how you care for them. When choosing the right contact case, there are many options to face. There is a myriad of designs, colors, and shapes. You want to make sure that your case is durable, but also fit for your specific needs. Thanks to great online sources, you don’t have to limit yourself to what is offered in stores. You can shop online to find the best case possible and read customer reviews. Make sure you know what to look for when choosing your future contact lens case.
Flat Cases
If you need a case to soak your contacts in over night, then you’ll want to look into getting a flat case. These cases come in a wide variety that offers different features. For example, DUO soaking cases are leak-proof for those who travel frequently or live with curious children. If you’re worried about bacterial infections, you can also get specialized cases that protect your lenses from this risk. Antibacterial lens cases have antibacterial silver ions incorporated into the plastic to prevent biofilm build up. This will keep your lenses clean and your eyes safe from risk of infection. If you don’t want to have to worry about screwing and unscrewing the caps on the case, you can opt for a flat, flip top case. You can also look into the soft, stylish look and function of a soft grip case. The caps are molded with plasticized rubber and set on a firm base, easily marked with left and right for easy identification. You can also get a mirror case to always have something to look in when you need to put your contacts in on the go.
Barrel Cases
Standard barrel cases can contain catalytic discs that you can place your lenses on. Barrel cases are traditionally used with peroxide solution and neutralize the solution for a deep clean. It is important that peroxide solution is only used with barrel cases that contain the catalytic disk. You can get barrel bases that have rotating caps, spring loaded baskets that rid the need for retaining clips, and are high-impact durable. These cases also come in several sizes.
When choosing a contact lens case, you want to make sure you are aware of all the options before you. There are many different cases that cater to a variety of needs. Consider consulting with your optometrist first to ensure you’re making the healthiest choice for your eyes. Online shopping for contact lens also opens many more doors and can allow you to search and review more options. As always, make when ordering online that the cases are FDA approved and manufactured in a clean environment.
