When to switch contact-lens case when cleaning every two weeks?

    After two years of successfully wearing Ciba O2 Optix on a six-day,
    five-night schedule before disposal
    I've recently switched to Acuvue Oasys on a six-day, five-night
    schedule each week for two weeks before disposal. That means I have to
    start cleaning lenses again.

    I know it is a good idea to regularly switch to a new contact-lens
    case every [month|two months|three months, depending on the source of
    the recommendation], but I presume this is for daily-wear users who
    clean every night. I only use a case for cleaning once every two
    weeks. I never reuse solution and always rinse out the case and lids
    with hot water before letting them air dry. In my situation, how long
    can I safely use a case before it's a good idea safetywise to switch
    to a new one?
