What are two weekly contact lenses?
Two weekly contact lenses (also known as ‘weeklies’, ‘two weeklies’ and ‘bi-weeklies’) have been designed to wear for as long as two weeks, with nightly cleaning and storing using contact lens solution. An effective compromise between the convenience and hygiene of daily disposables and the affordability of monthly contact lenses, two weekly disposable lenses are some of the most versatile contact lenses around.
Why should I choose two weekly contact lenses?
- Comfort – most two weekly contact lenses are either made from silicone hydrogel or other hydrogel materials, meaning that your eyes will be getting plenty of oxygen.
- Value – two weekly lenses typically prove to be cheaper than buying daily disposable contacts. As you’ll simply be buying fewer lenses, you’ll be spending less money.
- Hygiene – with two weekly disposable contact lenses, you’ll be replacing your lenses more frequently than you would with monthlies, reducing the amount of days you wear the same pair of contacts.
- Versatility – some two weekly contact lenses can be worn as extended wear contact lenses allowing for you to wear them day and night for up to a week, after which you’ll need to replace them. This means that, if approved by your optician, you have the choice whether to wear your lenses continuously or to follow the relevant cleaning routine.

How can I look after my two weekly contact lenses?

This way you can be sure your vision stays uninterrupted and you enjoy clear vision and healthy eyes for the full two weeks.
