I was told not to wear them for more than 5 days at a time and I have wore them that long with no problem. I use wetting drops before I go to bed and then again when I wake up.

Very good pr1nc3ss. Thanks. How long did it take you to get good at adding the wetting drops?

I am used to eye drops and the rules for using them as I am a nurse. Just remember to tilt your head as far back as you can, place the drop either in the lower lid or the inside corner and do not let the bottle tip touch your eye. you will eventually get the hang of it.

Thanks for the instructions for eye drops, pr1nc3ss. I got a tiny trial bottle from my eye doctor a few months ago. I practice putting drops in from time to time, but I don't usually put my head back. I'll try that next time, but it's weird to look at the tip of the bottle with the drop coming out of it right into my eye. It's a very strong instinct to prevent things from getting in your eyes.
