At Lens Direct, we offer a wide variety of monthly contact lenses at guaranteed low prices. Monthly contact lenses, also known as extended wear contacts come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including toric, multifocal, and colors. Monthly contact lenses can usually be worn for up to 30 days before they need to be thrown away. Monthly and other extended wear contact lenses are typically made by a more water rich material called silicone hydrogel, which allows five or more times the oxygen through the lens compared to standard contacts. In addition, your eyes can stay moist and comfortable with the silicone hydrogel material in monthly contacts.
Since extended wear contacts are kept for up to 3 months, consistent cleaning is extremely important. It is common for minerals and proteins to build up on the contact lens when proper care is neglected. Popular monthly contact lenses include Purvesion, Ait Optix, ProClear and Frequency.
