More Common Contact Lens Myths

By editor

Another common contact lens myth is that the care regimen for contact lenses is time consuming and complicated. This is false, the exact amount of care required varies depending on the lenses you wear. Extended wear lenses can be left in while you sleep and only need be changed at the intervals recommended by your practitioner. Daily disposable lenses should only be worn once and then discarded and regular wear lenses primarily require only the use of one-bottle care solutions that reduce maintenance to a minimum. An additional myth is that daily disposable lenses can be worn repeatedly. This

is absolutely false. So, despite claims of personal experience from others to the contrary, wearing your daily disposable lenses repeatedly has not been proven safe and as such should never be experimented with--you only have one pair of eyes.
