The differences are primarily how long you should wear a lens before you need to replace it.
- Daily Disposable contact lenses are used for one day, then thrown away. And usually don’t involve the use of lens solutions.
- Frequent Replacement lenses are reused for two weeks to one month (depending on the lens and your eye doctor’s recommendation) and require cleaning and disinfection every day. Extended Wear means you can sleep in the lenses for up to six nights/seven days (based on your eye doctor’s recommendation). Some lenses are approved for even longer wearing periods, but we believe a shorter wear cycle, and more frequent use of fresh lenses, is more comfortable.
