Watch for the usage longevity of contacts for one day/month/half years etc, and discard it follow the instruction of user's manual.

Keep the glasses for the emergency situation for spare use.

    Sometimes contact lens discomfort arises due to the ill-fitting lenses, since they are not one-size-fits-all. Also improperly used or cared for lenses can contribute to this kind of wearing discomfort. Keep a regular habit of soaking your contact lenses in solution (NO Tap Water!!!) and change the solution regularly (preferably 3 days' length). Avoid by all means your temptation to rub your eyes or put on contact lenses without cleansing your hands. Besides, wearing contact lenses for too long can also cause discomfort and eye fatigue. So developing a good habit is the half success of eye care.
