What are the pros and cons of extended wear (EW) contact lenses?
Extended wear contact lenses may be the right option for you if you want to wake up every day with clear vision. Most extended wear (EW) contacts are thinner than daily wear lenses and advanced soft lens material which enables EW lenses to “breathe” better than daily wear lenses, allowing more oxygen to reach the cornea. This is especially important when lenses are worn continuously for extended periods of time. Frequent replacement of EW lenses reduces the build-up of proteins and other lens deposits that cause eye inflammation and discomfort and create a hospitable environment for the growth of infection-causing microorganisms. Researchers found, however, that the incidence of eye infections was greater among people who slept while wearing contact lenses. Extended wear lenses can be a concern because bacteria and other potentially dangerous microorganisms can adhere to the lenses and get trapped between the lenses and your eyes. "Listen" to your eyes and take action, if necessary. Every day, take a good look at your eyes in a mirror. They should always: Look good Feel good See well If you experience red or irritated eyes or reduced vision that does not improve with fresh lenses or lens cleaning, remove your lenses and consult your eye doctor immediately.
