Introduced in 1987, 1 to 2 week disposable contact lenses are worn for one to two weeks and discarded. Because disposable lenses are replaced with fresh lenses it is unlikely that you will have to suffer from eye irritation because of deposits building up on your lenses. Contact lens care is minimal, as you won’t have to worry about cleaning and caring for your lenses every day or expensive lens cleaning solutions.
Replacing your lenses on a consistent basis keeps your eyes healthy and free from substances like protein, calcium, and lipids that can build up on your lenses.
Depending on the type and advice from your eye care practitioner, some 1 to 2 week disposable contact lenses can be worn continuously for one week, even while you are sleeping.
