Changing contact lenses--knowing when it's time

Discussion in 'Contact Lenses' started by Blasterbot5555, Sep 30, 2007.

  1. I have disposable (soft) toric contact lenses that are supposed to be
    worn for 14 days and then replaced. The lenses are for distance
    vision, and because I work out of my home at a computer, I don't put
    them in when I'm here. I generally only wear them when I go out for,
    say, anything over an hour, and then I take them out when I get back.

    Because I only wear them "part time," I didn't replace them at the 14
    day mark. Actually, I think it's been something like 5 weeks that I've
    been wearing the same pair, and they still feel fine.

    How do I know when it's time to replace them with a new pair? I had
    assumed that they'd eventually start to feel uncomfortable and I'd
    know it was time to change them, but so far that hasn't happened.

    Most wearers of this type of lens do the same thing.

    You answered your own question here, it will be up to you to find the
    level to where you have to toss them.

    Why are you still wasting time with this crap lenses?
    Can't you be quick and wake up to the truth of sight?
    Why must you linger to stupid quack treatments, that is: glasses,
    contacts, surgery, and so on. If I were next to you I would like to
    give you a nice good slap on the cheeks, which would send your contact
    lenses flying out and hopefully smashed to the ground. Wake up from
    this deep slumber!

    Why stop here ? How about that that quack food, oxygen, and water
    thing ? Who needs it ?

  5. If there are normal skin bacteria culturing in your case, they can
    overwhelm your disinfecting solution if you go more than a few days
    without replacing it. If you are replacing your solution regularly,
    then 14 wears or so can take months if necessary.

    Don't be stupid.
    Oxygen and food and water are required from the body.

    Do not be so foolish, dear chap.
    To stare at the sun is to destroy your vision.

    Is MRS GREN something you learn in school?

    Yeah, so are you saying you don't excrete or eat?
