Extended Wear Contact Lenses
Extended wear contact lenses, as apparent by the name, are designed for continuous wear for up to one month only if prescribed and fitted by an eye care professional. These lenses are usually made from soft flexible polymers. Extended Wear Contact Lenses are made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. It is important to note not all soft contact lenses are designed to be extended wear. You must always seek the advice of a professional when choosing any medical device, including contact lenses. Wearing a contact lens not specifically designed to be for extended use pose significant risk.
