Why You Should Not Wear Contact Lenses Longer Than Recommended
Millions of contact lens wearers are taught how to use and maintain their contact lenses without prescription as soon as they receive their first prescription. Wash your hands first, keep the lenses clean, remove them before sleeping – and most are vigilant about following them in the beginning. Then they start forgetting to clean their hands, or even remove their lenses when they sleep. Contact lenses are used every day, and just like anything that is present in our daily lives, we eventually take them for granted.
Contact lenses are considered medical devices, and just like other devices, there’s a proper way to use them. Not to mention that a lens is being put on the eye which is a very sensitive and important part of the body, I’m sure you agree.
The quality of contact lenses nowadays has allowed a lot of people with vision problems to safely and comfortably correct them without impairing their movement or restricting their activities. Contact lenses are so convenient to use, especially with the variety of disposal lenses that are now available.
However, in a recent poll, 52% percent of two-week lens wearers admitted to wearing their lenses for a longer period. 28% of one-month contact lens wearers do the same. The reasons vary: some are not aware that there is a replacement schedule, and some just extend to save money.
To ensure that you are reaping all the benefits and none of the negatives, we will discuss the repercussions of wearing a contact lens longer than the manufacturer said you should. This is pretty important, so please take note.
How Often Should You Change Your Contact Lenses
Complications Caused By Extended Lens Use
The warning to replace lenses after a prescribed number of days are not there to make you spend more money, or as a joke. There’s a reason for the warning. The conditions below can easily be avoided as long as you resist the temptation of wearing your contact lenses past the recommended period – for whatever reason. Don’t wait until they become uncomfortable. By that time, you’d be having several problems.
It is important to note that a Replacement Schedule is different from a Wearing Schedule.
Replacement Schedule indicates how often your lens should be replaced and discarded, whether you’re using dailies, monthlies or reusables.
Wearing Schedule refers to how long you can wear them before you need to remove it.
With these in mind, we trust that you will now follow the proper replacement schedule. Note that before wearing extended wear lenses, you should ask your doctor first. Not everyone can wear lenses in their sleep or continuously.
