Default more than one day use!?

I Have a question to direct to users of one day tru eye lenses?

I wear one day true lenses as my "sports" and working out lens. I mainly wear rgp lenses daily but have to wear soft lenses for safety issues while working out and playjng sports.

I have dry sensitive eyes and can omly tolerate certain soft lenses as most dry out and shrink causjng eye soreness and or pain. I have found that I have been able to re-use Acuvue one day trueye lenses (narafilcon b) usually about a week. I gently clean them with BL sensitive eyes daily cleaner rinse with BL saline then use clear care.The nxt time id wear the lens they would be fine.

Does anyone else wear daily lenses for longer like a week or longer. Acuvue tru eye lenses hold up for about a week i have found.

The lenses wear time is defined by the actual continuous wear time and not wear time rounded in days.

So, monthly contact lenses, if you carry them for 15 days (morning in, evening out) and then you have them in solution for 15 days, you could still carry them for extra 15 days (the time they were in MPS and nto actually worn) which would then total in 30 days of wear.

Same applies to 2 week lenses and i think 1 day shoudln't be any different. However i'm not going to say that for sure on ACUVUE 1-day/TruEye because ACUVUE are known to use internal moisture agent which may degrade through time or when submerged in another solution if you store 1 day lens into MPS solution for a night storage...

agreed..I have issues with soft lenses drying out and shrinking on eye....however being a daily rgp lens wearer besides I need a soft lens for when I workout.

I use the true eye one days which I wear about an hour or so about 5 times perweek. I put them in clearcare and they seem fine for rewear. I do put new ones in every week tho. I wear the narafilcon A version available everywhere but the us (narafilcon b material). The true eye still holds their shape and prior to wear I use a aquify to wet lenses prior to insertion. They hold up good and this soft lens wear works out good for me. The 9.0 base curve works out good for me and prevents that tight lens feeling.

If they feel fine i'd say with your wear pattern (1 hour per day), you could safely use them for a week imo. With 12 hour wear per day, using new one every day is a better thing to do.

yes I agree..it dawned on me this morning when I went to the gym to workout....came back home...took my true eye lenses out, cleaned them with daily cleaner, rinsed with saline, soak in clear care....

It dawned on me what a hassle that was....so Im just gonna use em once, throw em out, and use new lenses every time i workout. I then put my rgp lenses in...and boy what a difference. No burning , blurring, or lenses drying out.

I don't see much point in rinsing them with saline and then soaking them. Just soak them in solution and that's it.

Your right...I tried soaking them in biotrue once and it didn't clean the lenses enough. But im not gonna be cheap, i'll use em once only. I get em from costco and they are 35$ for a 30 day box.

Im also going to go back to Air Optix Aqua as my soft lens...they are more comfy end of the day if I choose to wear em all day. And with the way I wear them so infrequently, I can get them to last two months or so.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I'm glad the lenses work for you for a day, and that you won't "wear daily lenses for longer like a week or longer." I don't know why people don't understand that "daily" means "daily" as in "every day," as in "put in new contact lenses every day."
In your case it must be an adjustment to go from RGP lenses that last a long time to dailies that are very short-lived. You get the best of both worlds.

Unfortunately RGP lenses are fitted smaller then soft lenses and working out in the past wiping perspriation off the face Ive knocked out my rgp lenses in the weight room.....How embarassing to be on all fours in the free wieght room trying to find a itty bitty lens.

I have dry eyes due to meds...so I tolerate rgp lenses much better than their softer counterparts.

Im an ecp and I have tried all soft lenses known to man....and air optix aqua is the best lens for me...with my dry eyes.

And you're not reading what we are saying. Why throw a contact lens away after 1 hour wear where it clearly didn't accumulate much deposits and it didn't wear at all in this time. Disinfection solution will do the rest.

Wearing them for 12 hours a day clearly means they have worn out enough to be disposed.
