My daughter (13) just got contacts for her birthday in August. I don’t wear them myself so I’d like to pose a few questions here. (She is currently wearing 2-week O2 Optix by Ciba).
We’ve noticed that around day 10 the lenses become uncomfortable for her. Could it be the brand? Perhaps we should switch to a 1- week lens?
How many hours do you wear your contacts? I know they say it should only be 8 hours per day, but being realistic, when you are starting school at 8:00 am and going to bed around 10m-ish a kid is not going to be taking the contacts out at 4:00 pm – there are after-school activities etc. (Does anyone limit their wear to 8 hours? I’ve heard stories of people wearing them all day and all night for days at a time).
Any comments? Experiences? Suggestions? Thanks.
