Help a Reader Out! How Do You Store Your Contact Lenses?

Yesterday, reader Ashley tweeted with a question about how to organize contacts. I got all excited thinking about the different digital tools, address books, and apps she could use until we tweeted back and forth and I realized she meant contact lenses. Can you tell I  just wear glasses?

So since I clearly can’t organize my own contact lenses to help Ashley out like I did with buttons last week, I want to hear your solutions for organizing daily contacts and all the supplies.

But as a non contact lens wearer, my inclination would be to create a contact kit. Get a box or tray that can hold the contact lens boxes (remove the tops of each box so you can easily grab a new foil pack every morning), contact solution, eye drops, and your glasses case. If you don’t want to keep them in their original boxes, consider getting some of these plastic bins from The Container Store. Just be sure you label which bin holds the lenses for which eye. Then you can store the whole contact kit on a shelf in your bathroom.

Leave your suggestions for Ashley in the comments!

    It is really very important for your eyes that you only use the solution you were recommended by your doctor and you do not try to make your own.

    I completely agree with crazy contacts – best to leave the formula to the pros!
