1. How often should I replace Preference standard contacts?
Preference standard contact lenses are monthly lenses. If you are on a daily wear schedule and remove and clean the contacts before bed each night, you will only need to replace them once a month. If you are using them on an extended wear basis to sleep in, you will need to replace them more often. If you don’t wear your Preference standard contacts every day, you might not need to replace them as often. Make sure to discuss your wearing and replacement schedule with your eye doctor.
2. Are Preference standard contact lenses disposable?
Yes, Preference standard contacts are monthly disposable lenses, intended to be replaced approximately once a month, depending on your personal usage and the advice of your optician. Disposable contacts are the most popular form of contacts on the market because they are hygienic, comfortable, affordable, and easy to replace if one goes missing.
3. Can I wear Preference standard contacts to sleep?
Sleeping in contact lenses has been associated with a higher rate of infection. As a rule, we do not recommend wearing any contacts while sleeping. However, Preference standard contact lenses have been approved by the FDA for extended, overnight wear, from 1-6 days. Because overnight use is associated with higher risks, it is important to talk to your eye care practitioner before you try sleeping in your contacts. Extended wear users must remove and clean the contacts on the 7th day.
4. What kind of solution is best for Preference standard contact lenses?
Many users find a general multipurpose solution to be the most convenient choice for cleaning their Preference standard contacts, though the specific brand is a matter of personal preference and comfort.
