Forgetting which day to change their contacts is most commonly cited by wearers as the reason for not changing them as instructed. However, according to a new survey of contact lens wearers, ACUMINDER™, a complimentary online reminder tool, is helping them change their behavior.
Nearly 700 ACUMINDER™ users recently responded to a questionnaire about their contact lens wearing habits. Virtually all (95 percent) said they find the reminder tool useful in helping them remember when to change their lenses, with two-thirds (66 percent) noting that it has improved their contact lens replacement.
Prior to enrolling in ACUMINDER™, 40 percent of survey respondents who wear two-week lenses self-reported that they changed their lenses at or less than every 14 days (average wear time: 19.9 days), Since using the reminder, 76 percent say they now change their lenses at or less than every 14 days (average days worn = 14.7).
