Is it safe to wear expired contact lenses though I'm always cleaning those with a solution?

In brief: Usually safe

I am assuming that you have an intact contact lense within its shipping bubble but with an expired date.
If the bubble is intact, and the fluid is clear, then it is safe to use. If the fluid has become discolored or dried out, then discard that one.
