    Hi Optometry Forums,

    I have been wearing Acuvue dailies for years, only putting on my glasses at night. Recently, I purchased new glasses that I enjoy wearing now. Now, I find myself only wearing my dailies for about 1 hour/day while I work out. Then, I inevitably end up throwing them out after the work out and putting my glasses on. This seems awfully wasteful.

    Would it be okay for me to wear my dailies for an hour, then put them in a contact lens case with solution and use them the next day? If so, for how long could I do this?

    Is there a better long term solution for my new situation, given that I prefer to wear my glasses out? Should I get non-daily contact lenses? Or something else I'm not considering?

    Thank you,
