Some important information about contact lenses:
How many hours a day can you wear contact lenses?
You can wear contact lenses in all comfort and safety for 14 to 16 hours per day. However, it's always better to take them out as soon as you can, and especially before you go to bed, because your eyes need to breathe.
Are contact lenses better than glasses?
Contacts lenses can give you a more natural look compared to glasses because they don't vary the aesthetics of your face and are a direct extension of your eye. Contacts are useful when it comes to playing sports as they won't hurt your face. They also don't steam up when it's cold or rainy.
Is it safe to wear contact lenses?
Contact lenses are a medical device and are usually a safe form of vision correction. However, they are not risk free because if they are not cleaned or stored properly, they can increase risk of eye infections.
Which type of contact lenses are best?
Gas permeable (also called RGP or GP lenses) contact lenses are the best choice of contact lenses if you want the sharpest vision possible. They usually have better qualities than soft contact lenses because they have a hard and polished surface.
What is a good age to start wearing contacts?
51% of optometrists feel that children can be introduced to contact lenses between the ages of 10 and 12, while 23% believe that the right age to begin wearing contact lenses is between 13 and 14 years old.
