24 Reuses for Contact Lens Cases

Upcycling, recycling, or reusing – whatever you prefer to call it, turning old or unwanted objects into something new and useful can be a fun way to save time and be a little greener. Whether you’re an avid DIY-er or someone looking to get rid of clutter, you need look no further than your storage closet to find the materials needed to create family-, eco-, and budget-friendly items.

Our repeat customers are sure to have a healthy supply of a much needed vision accessory – contact lens cases. Contact lens cases provide more than convenience. The American Academy of Optometry recommends replacing your contact lens case once every three months to avoid contamination. We provide these cases to our customers free of charge to help your eyes stay healthy. But if you’ve managed to create a overwhelming stockpile, check out our list of ways to reuse your contact lens cases.
