Based on the name, I have to assume these electronic contact lens cases are either designed for a European nobleman having a rank that’s equal to a British Earl, or for people who have a hard time remembering how long it’s been since they’ve replaced their contacts. I’m inclined to believe it’s for the former, but most of the websites selling this thing seem to be targeting it towards the latter.
The Countact Lens Case features a simple blacklit LCD display which will show how many days your current set of contacts have been worn. It does require the user to remember to press a ‘counter’ button every time they change their contact lenses, but the lens case will do the rest by not only keep tracking of how long it’s been, but alerting you when it’s time to replace your lenses. And you can customize the ‘expiry’ date from anywhere between 14 to 30 days. They’re available from LatestBuy.com.au for $33.97 which actually gets you a pack of 4 since the built-in, non-replaceable battery powering the display is only good for about 3 months.
