How Long Can You Wear Extended Wear Contacts?
How long can you wear extended-wear contacts? This is a common question among people who use this type of cosmetic lenses. Extended wear lenses are prescribed by the ophthalmologist for people who have problems with their eyesight, but they can be worn for an extended time as well. Usually, your doctor will want to start you on an introductory course to see how comfortable you are wearing the lenses. He or she will want to evaluate your eyes before prescribing the lenses too so that you will know whether you are suitable for the lenses or not.
There are two kinds of people when it comes to wearing contact lenses.
The first group includes people who need corrective lenses only for a short period like two weeks or less. The second group comprises those people who need to wear the lenses for more than a month. You can wear these lenses for more than a month if your vision has been compromised and you also follow your doctor’s orders. If you wear contact lenses to treat your presbyopia then you cannot exceed the maximum distance of about ten feet when wearing them.
One of the benefits of wearing these lenses
is that you don’t have to remove them every night; this can take much time. If you do not want to remove your contacts each night you can choose to wear soft contact lenses. Soft contacts are generally recommended for people who enjoy sleeping during the day. If you do not sleep well or you don’t like having to remove and put on and off your contacts every night, soft contact lenses may be better for you.
The second benefit of long-period contact lenses
is that you don’t have to clean them like you would when you are using your glasses. Your contact lens prescription will specify the type of solution to be used in cleaning them. There are special solutions made to clean colored contact lenses and there are solutions made to clean just about any contact lens. In general, the solution used to clean your lenses should never be irritating to your eyes. In some cases, it may be best to clean your lenses just once each week. Cleaning your lenses once each week should ensure they are free of germs and that you do not get any foreign objects inside your eye.
The last benefit of long period contacts
is that they are much cheaper than short-term wear. You will pay less than a thousand dollars for a pair of contact lenses for a month, but you will spend three to four times as much money if you wear short-term lenses. For the same amount of money, you will also save a lot of time since you won’t need to apply makeup to cover up the problem vision. This saves time, which is very valuable to someone who needs to make a living driving or doing complex tasks.
These are the most common questions people ask
when wondering how long can you wear extended wear contact lenses. There are several answers to these kinds of questions. It depends on your situation. If you only have occasional problems with your vision (if you rarely go outside without wearing your contacts) then you probably don’t need to worry about the answer to this question. However, if you drive a lot or otherwise require a bit of help with your vision, then probably you will need to find the answer to this question.
