Thread: Don't Sleep in Focus Dailies

    Default Don't Sleep in Focus Dailies

    I heard from the Internet grapevine that sleeping in Focus Dailies is not recommended because they are very difficult and painful to remove after a night of shut-eye.

    Exclamation No you can sleep in focus dailies

    i have slept in these and its absolutely fine. you need a few seconds for your vision to clear but thet happens with all contac lense types. and you can remove them easily. if you cannot then your eyes dont get enough moisture, which is usually cause by overwearing the contact lenses.

    Ah, but it is disallowed. Look around this site and you'll find plenty of warnings about sleeping in contacts when you're not supposed to.

    I think what Railfan is trying to say is that your eye doctor will probably be able to tell that you've been sleeping in your contacts because there's most likely some damage.

    I'm not trying to lecture or scare you, margarita, I just want you to be safe. Please don't sleep in daily disposable contacts. Talk to your eye doctor about contacts that you CAN safely sleep in, okay?

    Focus DAILIES are NOT approved by the FDA for sleeping in. Their breathability is far too low for sleeping in but are completely safe for daily wear. Why on earth would you want to risk your lifetime of vision to try and get one by? Last time I checked, we couldn't replace your eye if you lost sight, but I could get you dentures if you lost your teeth. I can guarantee you that you will NOT see as well out of a corneal transplant than the original 'factory' equipment you were born with.

    I'm going back to monovision contacts after 3 years out of them. I'm trying Night and Day because I wanted to wear them constantly (up to 30 days). My Dr and 99% of my friends said DO NOT wear them at night. I'm 70 and have dry eyes and a diabetic. OK, if I don't wear them at night I want the kind I throw away at night. Focus dailies and Acuvue Moist seem to be the best two. Any comments?

    Thanks,
    Dick

    Default Don't sleep in dailies the material is not made for extended wear

    Focus dailies, Acuvue 1 Day Moist, etc and all of those daily disposable contact lenses are made to wear throughout the day and then throw away at night. If you are a patient sleeping in them that is like SARAN WRAP ON YOUR EYES. I am being honest. I am an optometric assistant and have seen many patients who have not listened and have blisters on the inside of the eyelids to more worse conditions like neovascularization where the daily lens is over worn and the eye is lacking oxygen flow to the cornea SO artificial blood vessels grow into the iris. I'm telling you I've seen it and even expereinced it years ago just because I didnt have proper knowledge. Also with the neovascularization due to lack of oxygen from not wearing the correct lenses for sleeping (like Ciba Night and Day) your vision worsens and you could become blind if the artificial blood vessels reach your pupil. K! So DO NOT SLEEP IN DAILIES they are called DAILIES for a reason!!

    Yeah, it wouldn't be good to fall asleep with any lens for that matter, it's really not fun.

    Isn't the key to a len's wear pattern shown in its NAME?

    Something with "daily" in its name probably can't be slept in where "weekly" and "monthly" indicates wear longer than 24 hours between removals?

    Default It doesn't hurt

    I use this lens. I have being sleeping in them since I was young. Once you get up, you will need some few minutes to regain your sight back. It doesn't harm to sleep in them

    *Sigh* Looks like my work here is NOT done.

    It's not a good idea to go on a forum like this and say "It doesn't harm to sleep in them" if you're not an eye doctor or some other such expert on contact lenses and/or eye health. It DOES do harm to your eyes. Again, that's why they're called "dailies," and not "change them whenever you feel like it." If you don't want to be bothered with taking your contacts out when you go to sleep, then get the kind approved by your eye doctor for overnight wear. If your doctor tells you, "You have extraordinarily healthy eyes. Go ahead and sleep in your Focus Dailies", then fine. If not, don't risk it.

    Well, RacerX, there hasn't been a reply in about three months so far, so maybe you've gotten through to them.

    I think the lens company gonna hates Bootz for this. They will have one less customer. I'm sure they would try to remove this thread if they ever find out about this. All these while, most of us that thought that since the extended wear contact lenses are designed to be used overnight, it would be perfectly safe.

    "The lens company" cannot remove threads from this website. At least, not legally. Only an Administrator can do that. The only way anyone else can remove threads is to hack into the system. If it were my contact lens company, I think any loss of business as a result of things posted here would be a drop in the bucket compared to legal fees and fines if I got caught hacking.

    Besides, Lens 101 is generally complementary toward contact lens companies. This thread is discouraging people from wearing their contacts too long. I don't see why anyone would object to that.

    Well . . . nobody smart, anyway.

    Good points of focus dailies:

    a. Daily disposable use is amazingly hassle-free.

    b. Light and comfortable for eyes.

    c. Smooth rounded edge

    Bad points of focus dailies:

    a. Costs more than fortnightly or monthly lenses.

    b. Feel tight on the eye. after a full days wear.

    c. Can be difficult to remove due to this tightness.

    d. Canít sleep in them.

    Ciba vision optix: They offer high breathability at lower rates. You can wear them for more than ten hours per day without any irritating.

    Good points of Ciba vision optix:

    a. Highly breathable.

    b. Comfortable and durable.

    Negative aspects of Ciba vision optix:

    a. They are expensive.

    b. Can not sleep wearing them.
    Very good post, Skumar. Short, sweet and to the point.

    Wouldn't sleeping in Focus Dailies be over-wearing and thus, cause them to stick in your eyes? You basically just said "You don't have to worry about contacts getting stuck if you over-wear your contacts. If they do get stuck, it's because you're over-wearing them."

    It's best to take them out at night and put in a fresh pair in the morning.

    I've been noticing on this thread that more and more posts are saying that you should never wear any kind of contact lenses overnight--daily or not. Does anybody have any thoughts on that?

    I've noticed that too. Knotlob, probably the most trusted member of Lens 101, has said in many different threads that one should never sleep in contact lenses of any kind. I'm not sure I agree, but I definitely would say that a lens with the word "dailies" in the name is not to be worn at night.

    I think that's a good place to start, Railfan.

    Question just saying...

    Disclaimer: ---I do not condone wearing Dailies for more that 8 hours-and you should always do whatever your doctor tells you.---
    but... I use Focus Dailies since 1995. I sleep in them and one pair lasts from 3 weeks to a month (usually I get a new pair every 3 weeks, if I feel discomfort I trash them immediately, that happens once or twice every year usually with a new lens within a minutes or a few hours from change). Since 1993 I had an eye infection and scratched cornea twice (both times from damaged/torn lenses, once using yearly lenses 'as prescribed' in 1994 and the second time, after wearing Dailies for extended times up to 8 weeks for about 15 years, about 2 months ago). I had 4 different eye doctors during that time and none of them ever noticed or diagnosed anything wrong with my eyes (once one of them mentioned redness and advised to take a break from contacts for a week or so). Additionally, I've recently met a person that is extending wear time of Dailies for at least last 10 years up to three months at a time without removing them for night. On the other hand my sister can't wear them for longer than 6-7 hours at a time and gets a fresh pair every day.

    I HEREBY NOTE THAT I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY POSSIBLE DAMAGE AND/OR INJURY. ANY ACTION YOU TAKE IS STRICTLY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Now why would you come on this site and say that? More to the point, why would you wear contact lenses that are called Focus Dailies for a month?

    You said "you should always do whatever your doctor tells you." Did your doctor tell you to wear your Focus Dailies for that long?

    I am entitled to have my own opinion and because it is based on my own experience I feel like sharing it on this forum... again, I am just sharing my 16 years+ experience of wearing Focus Dailies for the extended periods of time--and my doctors say that here is absolutely nothing wrong with my eyes.

    Yes, but did your doctors tell you it's okay to wear daily contact lenses for three weeks to a month? It would be weird for them to recoil in horror at the though of your wearing daily lenses for a month right after seeing how how healthy you eyes are, but I wonder what their reaction would actually be?

    See, here's the thing. I would hate to have someone get hurt because they read about someone who wears Focus Dailies for a month and decided to try it. This is a public forum and we should give people good and accurate information.

    I'm with you, Deepurple. When you post something on a forum like this one, you are responsible for what you put. So you really have to make sure your information is accurate before you post it here. Like you said, people come to this forum looking for advice, so the things they find here better be right.

    Again the question is--what's the point of coming on this site and saying "This is what I did, but don't you try it"? If you come on a forum like this and talk about something you did, chances are someone's going to try it for themselves. I think baxzy did a good job of discouraging people from following his or her example, though. I just hope no one gets hurt.

    I wear my focus dalies for astigmatism pretty much 16 hours a day and often fall asleep in them on weekends (I don't sleep in them overnight). If I am in a place where it is convenient to disinfect them overnight, I do so and find them quite comfortable for 3 or 4 days.

    I realize that they are not meant to be slept in and are meant to be thrown away after a single days wear. But I thought the point of forums was to discuss real world situations, not to simply repeat the product literature. If the latter were the point, the administrators could simple reprint the product literature and there wouldn't be any point in posting anything beyond that.

    That is some long term use, I used to go 3 days, but now I just go 2 maximum. I guess it all depends on your working environment.

    Your absolutely right about the working environment I'm a lawyer so I work inside. And, though I work long hours and the nature of my work means I don't blink frequently (like other computer users), if I worked, for example, in a dusty environment I wouldn't get nearly the same wear from my lenses.

    I think the point being made is that there a certain faction here who take the position that one should never post a personal experience that differs from the FDA approved product literature and that if one were ever to wear or use any lens in any way that in any way differs from that literature, they will go blind and suffer excruciating pain for life.

    Others believe that the entire point is to hear the experiences of other. After all, if that were true, there would be no point in having a forum. The moderators would have no purpose other than posting the FDA approved literature.

    Always trust the government 1st, they are doing an excellent job of running things. Let them tell you how to take care of your own personal body as well.

    This was discussed on a couple of other recent threads. You won't go blind from reusing a daily lens. You could get a serious eye disease, possibly even go blind, if you reuse a daily disposable lens without properly cleaning and disinfecting the lenses before wearing them the next day. A doctor prescribes daily disposable lenses. I suspect the doctor didn't tell you what kind of disinfecting products are suitable for you. I suspect the doctor didn't tell you the importance of cleaning your lenses. How to tell if it's time to discard your lens.

    People who previously wore vial, or even monthly lenses, might do OK reusing daily disposable lenses. People who only wore daily disposable lenses maybe not.

    Sleeping in lenses. Not a good idea, for the vast majority of patients, if the lenses aren't approved (or equivalent to lenses which are approved) for extended wear. Probably not a good idea, for many patients, even if the lenses are approved for extended wear.

    As I said before, if someone experiences problems reusing a daily lens from not properly storing/disinfecting, the fault is with them, not the lens

    I don't like the idea of sleeping in lenses at all--even the ones made for it--I used to wear Air Optix Night & Day and I felt like my eyes were suffocating in them

    I've never read that anywhere here on this forum. I have heard people warning others not to sleep in their contacts or wear them for longer than intended, but I don't recall anyone listing such dire consequences. If you read "it could be dangerous to wear your daily contact lenses for more than one day" and you get blindness and "excruciating pain for life" out of that, maybe you should get your contact lenses checked.

    This is a public forum, and those who contribute to it have a responsibility to disseminate accurate information. People who come on this site and say things like "the idea that you have to change Focus Dailies every day is just a plot by the eye doctors so they can make more money" are not disseminating accurate information.

    Maybe yes, maybe no. Studies suggest the "no rub" method of cleaning is inadequate. Lens marketed for daily disposable, and even 14 day planned replacement, may not hold up to proper cleaning. An eye doctor isn't likely to instruct a patient on proper methods of cleaning and disinfecting if the prescribed lenses are marketed for daily disposable use.

    This is an anonymous internet forum. Most of the posters aren't ECP. We have no idea how many of the posters who identify themselves as ECP are what they say they are.

    Posters need to be comfortable with information before following advice. Check with your own eye doctor. Check the mfg website. Check the FDA website.

    Some (cynical?) people think lens mfg market daily disposable lenses because lenses are more profitable then contact lens solutions. Others say poor patient compliance with lens cleaning and disinfection is a reason.

    Saying one reason is a plot by the lens mfg to make more money has some truth.

    Some (cynical?) people think lens mfg market daily disposable lenses because lenses are more profitable then contact lens solutions. Others say poor patient compliance with lens cleaning and disinfection is a reason.

    Saying one reason is a plot by the lens mfg to make more money has some truth.
    I agree with you, lurker2010. In general this forum is not visited by eye care professionals. So it's important to check out any information you get here with your own doctor.
    As far as there being a plot on the part of contact lens manufacturers to make more money, it's certainly true, but that doesn't mean they're all bad. Who doesn't want to make more money?

    I reuse mine because:
    1 I know how to keep them sanitary.
    2 It is economical.
    3 My vision is the same as a new pair for up to 3 days.
    4 Sometimes a used pair feels better then a new pair.

    Hi, this is Baxzy with the update. Almost 3 years passed since my original post and the next year will be my 20th anniversary of wearing Focus Dailies for extended periods of time (average 3-4 weeks per pair). During that period I did not experienced any problems with my eyes (except for those mentioned in my first post). Also, I've met 3 other people that wear their Dailies for extended period of times without any side effects. My doctor says that I may consider change from -3.5 to -3.75 (I guess that wouldn't be a surprise for non excercising fat ass in his 50's with a slight hypertension).
