CL Wearing Schedule Compliance

By editor
May 12, 2009

In order to maintain your optimum ocular heath contact lens wearers need to comply with the wearing schedule prescribed by their eye doctor. Unless specifically prescribed, daily wear contact lenses should never be worn as extended wear. Daily wear contact lenses must be removed before sleep. Extended wear contacts can be worn continuously (day and night) for up to a certain number of days, usually seven to 30 days.  Extended wear contacts are made of special materials that allow more oxygen to reach your eye, which makes them safer for wear during sleep. The FDA determines the maximum amount of time that extended wear lenses can be worn before their removal. As previously stated, some brands are approved for up to seven days of continuous wear; others can be worn up to 30 days. For further information or to book a contact lens appointment with one of our doctors please call any of our three Rochester, NY Cornerstone Eye Associates locations in Gates (585-328-0153), Brighton (585-244-2200) or Irondequoit (585-266-7880).
