Works for me Wednesday - Contact Tips

Here's what works for me as a contact wearer:

I wear those disposable long wear contacts. So when I pick up my order from Costco (the cheapest place to get contacts of the Oasis Brand), or any other supplier, I ask them if I can have a sample of their solution. Some places will even let you choose the brand. Often including an extra lens case.

When I get home with the boxes, I make sure they are properly labeled LEFT or RIGHT!

Then I write the date I put my lenses in, on the inside of the box cover. That way, I know for sure when it was that I had put new ones in, how fast I am going through them, and when I need to place another order. I make sure to keep a handy little pen or pencil right there along side the box to help with recording.

Another option is to make a note on your calendar when you need to change out your contacts.

Last of all, I take advantage of the Manufacturer Web Sites for offerings of samples, coupons, and future promotions.

The last time I did this, a company sent me a year's worth of contact lens cases, a sample of moisture eye drops, and $5.00 in coupons.

Here's to healthy contact wearing!
And what works for me...
