• Can I place my contact lenses in the fridge overnight?


    Can I place my single wear daily contacts (sealed from the manufacturer) in the fridge overnight and put them on the next morning? I would put them on the next morning to alleviate puffy red eyes from crying the night before.


    There is no harm in refrigerating unopened packets of disposable contacts. However, you should never wear your contacts if your eyes are puffy and red. This could lead to a corneal infection.
