Four most comfortable contact lenses
  1. Bausch and Lomb Ultra; the Ultra is the new addition to the long-established daily wear in the market. The research and development has invested in the new contact lens material, we still feel it is time for this quality lens to reach our examination room. So far, they have managed to acquire this lens, and have to manage to make some of their patients wear contact lenses daily due to their performance. These brands are also best for dry eye patients.
  2. Acuvue Oasys; a two-week replacement contact lenses, Acuvue Oasys has long existed and they have been contact lenses for over 20 years. For other reasons, Johnson & Johnson also has the largest share in the contact lens market in the United States. A great aspect about these lenses is their UV-protection, blocking 96% UV-A and 99% UV-B radiation. These lenses also are available in Astigmatism and Multifocal with two-chosen base curves; 8.8 mm and 8.4 mm.
  3. CooperVision Biofinity; using Aquaform Comfort Science technology, Biofinity is made from premium silicone hydrogel and the best monthly replacement lens that performs well for dry eyes. They have successfully acquired this lens in our training to keep your eyes healthy and moist all day long. Similar to Acuvue Oasys, Biofinity also has contact lenses for Astigmatism and Multifocal option.
  4. Alcon Air Optix Night & Day; this lens has been designed to be continuous use contact lens for 30 days. But we didn’t prefer to use 30 days continuous wear, this monthly lens remains nice even if you didn’t sleep with the contacts. Air Optix Night & Day Aqua have one of the highest oxygen permeability on the market, which leads to better overall eye health. These lenses are also slightly smaller than other monthly contact lenses which can increase comfort.

All of these lenses can be the right choice for patients who suffer from dry eyes caused by contact lenses and who have difficulties to wear their contact lens for a full 12-14 hours per day. If you have tried these lenses but still have problems like uncomfortable or blurred vision, we suggest you wear a daily disposable lens everyday.

Are monthly contacts good for 30 days?

Is it okay if I wore monthly contacts for 30 days?

Wearing a lens for the first time can be an exciting experience, but usually it will take your eye to get used to it when you are wearing them. Many contact lenses are designed for an extended wearing approved by FDA which are made up of silicone hydrogel that can allow oxygen to pass through the eyes easily. 

Wearing contact lenses longer than their recommended length of time can increase the risk of eye infections and complications. There are many different types of contacts on the market which are designed for daily use or daily disposable. This means the lens will be taken out for each night. Despite, monthly lenses are generally worn during a day and cleaned or stored for each night, and then disposed of after a month of use. For monthly contacts, same contact lenses can be worn continuously for up to a week longer or for 30 days. So it is important to follow the guidelines from your eye care specialists and all labelling instructions on caring for the lenses.

are monthly lens are good for 30 days?

Why not to use Monthly contacts longer

Your monthly lenses should be thrown away 30 days after opening the contact lenses; regardless on how many times you have worn it. But still, using them in a longer period than recommended can potentially cause an eye infection, or irritation while wearing the contact lenses; or blurry vision. As stated, the maximum time of wearing any lens has been approved for only 30 days of continuous wear. The longer you wear the contact lenses consistently, the greater the risk for an eye infection. This also can lead to blindness without a proper treatment. Although, a monthly disposable lens should be replaced after 30 days, even if you didn’t wear it everyday.

In addition, most optometrists recommend wearing daily disposable lenses for those who didn’t wear it everyday. For the lens solution, never leave a lens soaking in solution for more than a week. Thus, if your lens is soaking for a few days, replace it with the new fresh solution the night before you wore it on the next day.
