How long can you keep contact lenses in your eyes?

Generally, it is recommended that you should wear your contact lenses for a maximum of 10-12 hours per day, for up to five days a week. However, to a certain extent, this does depend on the characteristics of your eyes and the type of lenses that you have.

We do offer ‘extended wear’ lenses which can be worn during the day and when you are asleep, for up to a week.

However, one of our Opticians will be able to discuss with you the available options and what is best for your individual needs.
