Weekly disposable contact lenses are made to be used for 1 to 2 weeks and then thrown away. Weekly contact lenses are extremely popular and are some of the most prescribed contact lenses. They bridge the benefits of dailies and monthly contacts and provide an exceptional wearing experience. There is the largest variety in weekly contacts, so there is the much higher chance a doctor will prescribe them. Weekly contact lenses also offer a great selection for individuals with astigmatism or presbyopia. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instruction, even though some weekly contact lenses are approved for overnight approval, your doctor may advise against it.
While weekly contact lenses are popular, 2 week contact lenses are also a great option. Depending on the recommendation by your doctor, 2 week contacts can be used for up to 2 weeks if you remove them at night, or 1 if worn over night. In many cases, doctors will suggest that patients remove their contacts every night, regardless of the FDA approved usage. Weekly contact lenses typically transmit a higher level of oxygen than their daily counterparts. LensDirect offers weekly contact lenses and bi weekly contacts from top quality brands such as Acuvue, FreshLook, Bausch & Lomb, Proclear, CIBA Vision, and more.
