Can I wear contact lenses?
As with most new things it can take a little while to get used to wearing contact lenses. Your Health Partners optometrist will recommend the best type of contact lens for you based on your eye test results, lifestyle and budget.
What types of contact lenses are there?
There are many types of contact lenses to choose from, from daily disposable to extended wear.
|Daily disposable||Used as needed and disposed after every use - the healthiest option for your eyes|
|Frequent replacement||Replaced every fortnight or every month and require cleaning after every use|
|Extended wear lenses||Can be worn overnight, some up to 29 consecutive nights|
|Conventional lenses||Custom made and replaced every year so cleaning and hygiene is important|
