Default Wear time for Proclear contacts

How long do you wear you lenses each day, and how many days a week do you wear them? Two different doctors have given me two very different guidelines, so I would really like to hear from all of you Thanks.

Due to their thin design and higher water content, they can be worn for an average of 16-18hrs a day.

Some eyes are fine and some eyes need more oxygen. If you see halos around lights, fogging, and eye pain after taking lenses out. These are signs of corneal edema.

You may benefit being fitted with a silicone hydrogel lens.

Thanks for your reply. Proclear Compatibles are the only lenses that are comfortable for me. I've tried silicone but I'm constantly aware of them being in my eyes, and they get so dry they lift off of my eyes and then I can't see at all. Proclear are very comfortable for me, and the only time I am really aware of them is when there is a quick change in ambient humidity. I do have a strong script. Does that make any difference in wear time? Can Proclears be worn 7 days a week?

Coopervision.com says all Proclear lenses are designed to be worn for 30 days except, of course, Proclear 1 Day and Proclear 1 Day multifocal.

Does this mean you can wear them 30 days straight with no break and still have healthy eyes?

Is this true of the Proclear lenses only, or are you suggesting that no lenses should be worn overnight?

The doctor who prescribed my lenses told me to wear them as long as they felt comfortable, and not to sleep or nap in them. Those were his only guidelines. Then he retired and my new doc says wear them only 10-12 hours max, and only 5 days a week with two days wearing no contacts at all. She spent a lot of time trying to scare me about the possibility of neovascularization. This was a big downer after I had gotten used to wearing them all my waking hours. I am surprised two doctors could have such radically different approachers. So now I am happy with your answer because it supports why my original doctor said.
