Extended Wear

Extended wear contact lenses (fortnightly or monthly)

  • These revolutionary contact lenses are made of special materials that allow the wearer to continuously wear their contact lenses day and night for up to 30 days without taking them out, giving you 20/20 vision 24/7. No need to reach for the glasses when you get out of bed, and even just showering can be done quicker and more conveniently with these night and day contact lensesThe new advanced materials called silicon hydrogels allow up to 6 times more oxygen to travel through the contact lens than traditional soft disposable contact lenses. This oxygen permeability is extremely important to the health of the eye over long periods of time.

    They are designed with a lower water content so they don’t dry up as much as ordinary soft contact lenses. This may be beneficial to those finding their current lenses dry or uncomfortable, a common problem in modern air conditioned offices.

    They have a special bio-compatible surface treatment to decrease protein deposits and bacteria growth. These not only keep your lenses in a healthier state but keep them more comfortable. This is important because protein and bacteria are a common cause of eye infections.

    The ability to wear your  lenses both night and day for up to 30 days also means you only have to insert and remove them once a month, making it easier for those who struggle with insertion.
