Vistakon, a division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, has developed a Facebook application that reminds patients to replace their contact lenses. The application allows patients to receive reminders by email or via their Facebook feed.
Patients that are not Facebook users can still use the service by going to the Acuminder website to register where the can elect to get reminders via text message or email. There is also an option to download a reminder to you computer desktop.
This is a great idea! We constantly hear that patients forget to replace their contact lenses, thus increasing the risk of eye infections, because the get busy and forget to do it. The more often contact lenses are replaced the healthier it is for our eyes. So give your eyes a break and sign up.
