Can I leave my contacts in for 9 hours straight?
Hey I was just wondering, since im trying contacts again. I was wondering how long you can leave your contact lenses in your eyes? because im going to ware them at school, and ill probably put them in at 6:00am and take them out at 3:00pm.. is that ok to do??

Maddy K
they can actually ruin your eyes i you leave them in for longg so...
qwhen iwas younger i used to where them everydays like 8am-9pm and my eye cataracts were damaged so maybe you should ask an optomitrest

bring along your glasses and C.L. container filled with solution for stand-by no ones knows what will happen as some beginning or restart wearer need sometimes to adjust to long hrs of wearing likes first day 4 - 6 hrs and increase 2 hrs everyday up to 14 hrs
as you mentioned trying contact lens again really make me quite worried what happened to your eyes or C.L. before.
take care & best regards.

That's just fine, I leave mine in just before bed.

Chloe M
that's fine! i keep mine in for much longer than that and i never have a problem, i wouldn't worry :)

It matters if they're hard or soft lenses.
It should tell you on the leaflef you'll get with a packet of disposable soft ones. When I last used those it was a mas of 6 hours before a break.

i think if uve worn them before there wont be a problem with that. ur eyes might dry up quickly so i would bring ur solution

If you just got them, they usually say you should work up to wearing them that long. But after you've had them for a few days, that should be fine.

But after you get used to them, you should be able to wear them from the time you wake up until you go to bed.

you can wear your contacts for as long as you want. Just take them out at night.

Mary S
Well, it depends for what kind of contacts you have. Some can stay on for weeks, and others for only 14 hours.
Most can stay in for 9 hours though. If you have any doubts, call your eye doctor to clarify anything.

Hope this helps :) .

i keep mine in for 16 =]
and my eyes are still fine

My avatar has a mullet!
Yes, that's okay. I have 'accidentally' fallen asleep with them on and I'm fine..I think. Don't worry too much about it.
