are monthly contacts good for 30 days

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.
