How should I store my contact lenses?

Always Store Contact Lenses in a Sterile Case

Contact lenses should always be stored in a sterile carrying case filled with fresh solution. This will ensure the contact lenses remain moist and clean. Contact lens wearers should carry both a storage case and a bottle of storing solution in case they need to take out their contact lenses. Many contact lens wearers make the mistake of carrying a storage case filled with solution. This is not ideal because the solution may become tainted or even evaporate if left in the case for too long.
