Recent scientific innovations in contact lens technology now make it possible to safely wear contact lenses with the maximum of convenience.
If you dislike the idea of laser vision correction, but want an alternative to wearing eyeglasses, consider a new type of contact lens that you can wear for several days or even several weeks at a time without removing at night.
In the late 1980’s, there were problems with a few extended wear contacts because they were made with older lens materials that provided insufficient oxygen to the eyes.
This has since changed. The new generation of contact lenses provide excellent eye health even when worn continuously for many days or week at a time.
