British design and manufacturer of contact lens cases

Having an FDA approved lens case may not be something you have put much thought into before, and perhaps you have bought your lens cases in the past without considering this aspect. However, it is important that you do look for FDA approved cases for your contact lenses in the future, rather than picking any case off the shelf to store your contacts.
Protect Your Eyes
The primary reason that the case you choose is so important is because it is holding the objects that will go on your eyes each day! These objects, the contact lenses, should be safe from any bacteria or other micro-organisms that could pose a threat to the health of your eyes. Avoid infection and irritation by storing your contacts in a secure, safe case with fresh solution each night. Be sure to fill your case with new solution rather than topping off what is already in the case, as the solution loses its disinfecting abilities after the first use.
Protect Your Lens
The first goal is to protect your eyes, and in order to do so, you must protect those contact lenses! A reliable case prevents the lenses from drying out and keep dirt or other degrading materials away from the lenses. A cheap case that you can pick up just anywhere may not offer the same level of durability and protection that an FDA approved case guarantees.
Function With a Little Flair
Who says contact lens cases have to be boring? At Optipak, you can find a whole variety of shapes, sizes, and designs to fit your preferences for a lens case. Plus, they’re all totally FDA approved! Why settle for the cheaply made cases that pose a threat to your eye’s health and are also far from exciting, when you can have a case that suits your personality and style?
Endless Varieties to Choose From
Getting an FDA approved cases doesn’t mean you are limited to one standard type of case, but instead you get a whole variety of choices! There are barrel cases, flat cases, mirror cases and more! Depending on your needs and preferences, you may choose a mirror case so you can make use of the mirror that’s included when you’re putting on your contacts. Plus, this category even has variety within itself, letting you choose from original, leather, or roll cases! If you prefer something with a little fun and color, Optipak offers designer cases as well as seasonal. You can be sure to find something just right to turn the boring task of applying contacts into something a little more fun and colorful.
The primary goal of FDA approved contact lens cases is to protect your lenses, and in turn, protect your eyes! Just because it is FDA approved, however, does not mean your case has to be boring and ordinary. At Optipak, you can find cases that match your personality and will keep your eyes healthy and safe!

Contact lens need protection.

Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Case?

The importance behind a contact lens case is indescribable through just a mere paragraph of text, but to cover a few bases; without a case, where exactly would you store your contact lenses?

Without these cases, your lenses would be exposed to the elements, exposing your lenses and putting your eyes at risk for serious infection and unsafe hazard.

What are They Made From?

Contact lens companies prefer their delicate product be kept safe in gentle material, therefore the products the cases are made with must be durable and sturdy, but gentle enough to hold something being placed on the most sensitive place on your body. Typically made from a softer plastic, or harder rubber, the cases are lined with a smooth coating to make sure your lens do not stick and rip. Because contact lens companies make their lens durable, the cases tend to be made from hard plastic, but can range from hard plastic, to rubber, soft plastic or rubber; they can also have regular flat caps, designs, shapes, colors, a whole variety of different type of lids, and casings.

The following steps on how to clean your contact lens case will help keep your lenses healthy and fresh to help you avoid any eye irritation:

  1. After inserting in your contact lenses, empty all lens solution from the contact lens case (never re-use your contact lens solution).
  2. Rinse the contact lens case with clean lens solution and rub the inside of the contact lens case with your clean fingers.
  3. Dry your contact lens case by turning it upside down without the caps on until you’re ready to store the contact lenses again. If your case has silver nitrate lining, keep the contact lens caps on.
  4. If necessary, you can occasionally use the dishwasher to disinfect your contact lens case or you can boil it on the stove for five minutes to achieve the same result.
  5. Replace your contact lens case every three months or 4 times a year at minimum. You can order FREE contact lens cases from www.digicase.com
