Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Contact lenses or contact lenses are a sight aids that are increasingly popular in use, especially because with the advancement of technology nowadays, soft lenses are sold in various designs and colors, even to the extent that those with low-sighted eyes are tempted to buy them.
Using soft lenses is clearly not a wrong thing, it's just that because we attach a certain tool to one of the vulnerable parts of the body, namely the eyes, we must be extra careful in installation, maintenance and cleanliness. Specifically, what we have to pay close attention to is the expiration date.
The expiration date of the contact lens is from the moment you open the lens cover and the lens is exposed to outside air. There are disposable soft lenses, some are a month old, and some are longer, counting from the moment you opened the lid earlier. Every contact lens user must pay attention to this because if it is used more than the age limit, the potential for damage to the eye will be even greater.
So regarding your question, the expiration date of your contact lens is not assessed from when you bought it, but from when you opened it. If you buy it and open it on August 31, 2018, it will expire 6 months later, which is approximately February 2019, regardless of whether you use it continuously, rarely, or not at all during those 6 months. But if you buy it in August and just use it in September, then the expiration date is calculated as 6 months from September, and so on.
If you are still confused, to avoid misunderstanding and losses in installation, do not hesitate to consult directly with a general practitioner or ophthalmologist regarding your contact lens installation. Always remember to wash your hands before and after handling the contact lenses, clean the contact lenses regularly, also clean the contact lenses, and do not use the contact lenses more than 8-14 hours a day, and also do not use them while sleeping or swimming. So, hopefully it answers your question.
