What are extended wear contact lenses?
Extended wear lenses offer the perfect option of visual correction for those who don’t want to follow a fussy contact lens cleaning routine. If you’re used to late nights and early mornings with a frequently changing schedule, then extended wear contact lenses make life that little bit easier as you won’t have to remember to take them out every night and put them back in every morning.
Some of the most popular extended wear lenses can be found when you shop online at FeelGoodContacts.com and include Acuvue Oasys, Biofinity and Air Optix Night & Day Aqua.
Why should I choose extended wear contact lenses?
- Convenience – simply apply your lenses at the beginning of your wearing schedule, then there’s no need to worry about them until the time comes (typically in two weeks or a month) to take them out. Perfect if you’re a night owl and/or an early bird.
- Comfort – because of the nature of the lenses, which are more porous than daily disposables, oxygen is able to reach the eye and circulate more easily. This promotes breathability and ensures that your eyes feel fresh throughout use.
How to look after extended wear lenses
Before you try them, make sure to ask your optician if extended wear lenses are a suitable option for you. This is because there are a number of different factors that determine if extended wear lenses are compatible with your eyes.
One of the most important things to remember is not to wear your extended wear lenses past their recommended wearing date. In addition, as they’re not routinely removed and cleaned, you’ll have to take extra care in maintaining the hygiene of your eyes. FeelGoodContacts.com are delighted to stock an exceptional range of eye care products that includes cleaning eye drops and re-wetting drops for your lenses.
If your extended wear lenses do cause you any irritation or visual problems, then switch to a new set of lenses straight away.
