Johnson & Johnson, the manufacture of Acuvue contact lenses has recently launched a new website designed to remind patients when it is time to replace their contact lenses.
Most contact lenses have a certain replacement schedule recommended by the lens manufacturer or by the patient’s doctor and can range from one day to a month or two. However, many patients neglect to replace their lenses on time which can lead to lens infection and cause serious damage to their eyes.
Contact lens wearers looking to sing up for the service must register online at www.acuminder.com. Members have a choice of receiving their reminders either via e-mail, text message, or a computer desktop widget. During registration, users must provide their name, ZIP code and an e-mail address. They must also disclose their eye doctor’s name, the recommended length of contact lens use, and the last time they changed lenses.
