Contact Lens Replacement Schedule
As a continuation of the previous blog entry, contact lens wearers also need to comply with the lens replacement schedule prescribed by their eye doctor in order to maintain the health of their eyes. The replacement schedule depends on the contact lens material and design, as well as lifestyle and the condition of the individual's eyes. Conventional soft contacts can last up to a year; conventional rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses can last even longer. Frequent or planned replacement contact lenses last one to several months. Disposable contacts last from one day (if worn as daily wear) to up to two weeks (if worn as extended wear).
