Extended Wear Contact Lenses
Reusable extended wear contact lenses are a great value for money option and are ideal people for who wear contact lenses for a long time every day. Gone is the hassle of putting them in or taking them out on a daily basis as is cleaning and storing them.
Continuous wear contact lenses are thinner than their daily counterparts and are made from silicone hydrogel which retains far greater levels of moisture than daily lenses which allows up to 5 times more oxygen to reach the eye.
Some extended wear lenses can be worn for six nights and seven days in a row whilst others can be worn continuously for a month. Your optician will advise if your eyes are suitable for these type of lenses as not everyone has sufficient natural tears - if your eyes do not then it’s possible to experience some discomfort.
