- How long can I wear Acuvue Oasys contact lenses
Acuvue Oasys contacts with Hydraclear Plus are two week lenses, meaning that you can wear them for approximately 14 days total. If not worn on a daily basis, you may be able to spread that out for slightly longer periods of time. This means that just because your Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus lens was opened on the 1st of the month, you may not have to throw the contact lens away on the 14th, if you have only worn it 8 times. The normal contact lens wear time is about 12-14 hours a day. It is healthiest to take the lenses out at night; if over worn it is possible to develop corneal ulcers, or other sight-threatening problems.
