Can Contact Lenses Freeze?


    Yes they can, typically at just below freezing temperatures regardless of brand or type. Allow them to come to room temperature before you try handling them. Don’t worry, it happens every winter. Contact lenses are shipped to every state in the union, and some of those states can get pretty cold. No precautions are taken to prevent contact lenses from freezing in transit. Studies have shown that long-term, contacts suffer no damage or impact to their power in the event of their freezing. It happens, let them thaw, and life goes on.
