One of the worst mistakes you can make is using expired solutions, lenses or eye drops.

Your contact lens solutions have cleansers that kill bacteria on your lenses, so you have to makes sure that they are doing their job. That same rule applies to the lenses themselves, which sit in a sterile solution that breaks down over time. Artificial tears and prescription eye drops also have expiration dates that you should pay close attention to.

Rinsing your contact lens case or storing your contact lenses in any liquid that’s not sterile, like tap or distilled water has been associated with Acanthamoeba keratitis, a drug-resistant corneal infection.

If that doesn’t concern you, it should.
