Thread: Contact lenses

  1. #1

    Default Contact lenses

    Question for those who wear them. When do I know to change the lens? They tell me once a month, but they still work fine. Does something happen to the lens or something? Thanks!

    I myself don't wear it but have been thinking of gettin' 'em sometime and done some minor research among my friends who wear 'em.
    Well my best friend uses the same very contacts that are good for a month for up to 90 days...and in most cases it doesn't really do much.
    but there has been instances when the lens just cracked while it was in his eye *luckily it was a minor incident* or they just dry up...etc...
    there is a reason why they say 30 days *besides the fact of making more money*...and i think it would be in your best interest to stick by it..cause even though the lenses have been around for a while...they still haven't been long enough to know their longtime effect on your eyes.

    It depends on the ones you own, but generally speaking you should replace them when you're instructed to, in this case once a month.

    For me, I used to have lenses that were supposed to be changed every two weeks, but I'd wear them much much longer, but the more I did, the more they crapped out more quickly at night, seemed generally dirtier, or would begin to iritate my eyes. That's usually when I switched.

    Now that I've started wearing a different type (I love them; you sleep in them and only need to take them out to clean them once a week), I'm trying to be better about it and am going to switch every month like I'm supposed to.

    Oooh, I really like my contacts. They're disposable .I'm supposed to throw them out after a month, but they don't irritate my eyes or rip so I keep them until they do.

    Contacts suck. They just don't suck nearly as my as my actual eyeballs suck.

    Although, I think I'm going to stat wearing my glasses much more. Contacts are such a hasslle. Only time glasses fail me is if I'm playin bball.

    Mine don't cause too much trouble unless I fall asleep, then they get kind of dry.

    Sports and glasses don't work for me either.

    I use Johnson & Johnson Acuvue disposable lenses. The last couple of years, after getting a pair of glasses I really like, I only use my contacts about half the time now.

    Don't believe the only use for a month, it's just to sell more lenses. Unless they get cloudy or rip don't replace them. I've had one pair of disposable ones last for over a year. Of course I take them out and disinfect them every night, which is very important. I use Opti-Free disinfecting solution and regular CVS brand saline solution to rinse them.

    My personal eye doctor and my next door neighbor that is a eye doctor says the way I use them is fine. They do not replace their's every month either.

    I wear hard contacts and I love them. They don't make soft contacts strong enough for me and I really look like a dork with glasses on.

    Take them out when you're told to do so.

    I have to wear expensive daily contacts now because I abused the system.
