Can you wear extended wear contact lenses for dry eyes?
You can indeed wear extended wear lenses for dry eyes. However, you should always consult with your opticians or an eye doctor before you do so. Our Biofinity multifocal lenses are great for people with dry eyes as are our Acuvue Oasys lenses.
Our Acuvue Oasys lenses are made from silicone hydrogel. This prevents the eyes from drying out, by allowing up to six times more oxygen to reach the eye. These lenses will keep eyes moist and refreshed for the whole day. This lens includes Hydraclear Plus Technology enabling them to retain a wettable surface and keep the eyes hydrated.
PureVision 2 is also a suitable choice as extended wear for dry eyes. These highly breathable lenses made from silicon hydrogel feature a ComfortMoist Technology which keeps them moist and comfortable to wear. Dry eyes from digital screen use, indoor heating and air conditioning will no longer be a problem.
Air Optix Night & Day Aqua lenses combine a silicone hydrogel design with TriComfort technology for a smooth and moist lens. They are depsoit-resistant, enabling them to lock in moisture,keeping eyes hydrated whilst preventing the build up of protein and debris throughout the day. This will prevent discomfort and damage to the cornea. They are suitable for 30 days and 30 nights of continuous wear as long as prescribed by your optician.
