Get Ready for Contact Lens Health Week!

 Get Ready for Contact Lens Health Week!

This year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners will celebrate Contact Lens Health Week from August 22-26, 2016 in an effort to increase public awareness and promote healthy contact lens wear and care.

This year's program will focus on three key areas: 

  • Healthy contact lens hygiene habits
  • Proper use, care, and storage of contact lenses and supplies
  • Regular visits to an eye care provider

To help ECPs prepare for Contact Lens Health Week, the CDC has developed a variety of tools and materials available for download on their website, including downloadable posters and tear-off pads with contact lens tips that can be ordered for free. And the CDC has made available a number of messages ready for posting to Facebook and Twitter in its downloadable resources, and suggests any related social media messages include the campaign's hashtag #OnePairTakeCare.
