What are weekly contact lenses?
Each pair of weekly contact lenses (also known as ‘two weekly contact lenses’, ‘bi-weekly contact lenses’ or ‘weeklies’) has been designed to wear for as long as two weeks. This wearing schedule requires nightly cleaning and storing using contact lens solution.
Why should I choose weekly contact lenses?
Comfort – most weekly contact lenses are either made from silicone hydrogel or other hydrogel materials, meaning that your eyes will be getting plenty of oxygen.
Value – weekly lenses typically prove to be cheaper than buying daily disposables. As you’ll simply be buying fewer lenses, you’ll be spending less money.
Hygiene – with weekly 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 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.
