What are monthly contact lenses?

Monthly contact lenses are contact lenses which are used for a total of 30 days once the package has been opened. Monthly contact lenses are thicker and more durable when compared to daily contact lenses. They can be stored and used for up to only 30 days, as they can build up dust and protein which is harmful to your eyes, this is why it is important to make sure that you are not overusing your monthly contact lenses for longer than the 30 days use Some users of monthly contact lenses presume that because they only wear their contact lenses for an example of 3 days per week, this means that they have only used the lenses for a total of 12 days within the 30-day limit, that it is okay to keep using the contact lenses till those 30 days are complete, but this is not how the contact lenses are designed to be used. You should dispose of your contact lenses after the 30th day from when you have opened the package. Monthly contact lenses should be stored in a multipurpose solution overnight so that they can be sterilised and ready for the next day's usage. Depending on your preference and lifestyle, most people opt for monthly contact lenses because they are cost-effective, especially for those who will be wearing their contact lenses every day. Although, some people do not want to deal with the extra care that monthly contact lenses come with, in terms of cleaning them every night and putting them into a multipurpose solution, which is why they opt for daily contact lenses as daily contact lenses do not require this extra care.

How to clean monthly contact lenses

To clean your monthly contact lenses, start by making sure you have a clean contact lens case and clean dry hands. In order to wash your contact lens case, you should start by running it under some warm water and a small amount of antibacterial soap (make sure that the soap is fragrance and lotion free), be sure to rinse the case underwater thoroughly so that all the soap has been rinsed off of the case. Leave your case to air dry, in order to prevent any dirt from coming into contact with the lens case, once your case is clean and dry begin to wash your hands. Washing your hands with lotion and fragrance-free soap before taking your contact lenses off is extremely important in order to prevent the transformation of the bacteria and dirt on your hands onto your contact lens. Once you have washed your hands, be sure to dry them thoroughly with a paper towel. When you have washed your hands and your contact lens case is completely dry you can begin to take your contact lens out of your eye using the most comfortable method for you. Take one of your lenses’ out carefully and place it into the palm of your hand but be careful not to stretch the palm of your hand out, you should create a space to be able to create a small puddle of solution in your palm. Add your multipurpose solution into the palm of your hand with your lens in it, and begin to rub on each side of your contact lens for around 15 seconds. You should do this gently and make sure to not tear or damage your lens. After you have cleaned your monthly contact lens, place the lens gently into your contact lens case that you have prefilled with your solution and make sure that your lens is deeply submerged into the lens and isn't floating at the top or stuck to the sides of the case, this can cause it to get stuck onto the lid and tear the lens.

Can you sleep in monthly contact lenses?

You should always void and never sleep with your contact lenses in your eye, this is because when you are awake and you are blinking, your contact lenses move which allows your eyes to receive oxygen. However, when you fall asleep with your contact lenses in your eyes, your contact lenses are not getting enough oxygen that it needs, this will put you at risk for an eye infection, scarring, or even vision loss. Falling asleep with your contact lenses is never allowed, you should take extra precautions to make sure that you are taking your monthly contact lenses out if you are going to go to sleep.
