I'm sure that would be possible, but in case of problems consult your doctor or optician.

Yes I believe so. I've got ones that last a month though.

if you don't take them out and clean them. They'll break down eventually, but I would gander to say that the 2 weeks limit on them really gives you a few more.

:eek: , you should change them, no?

Well,I use 1 month contacts but I usually keep them around 2 months...and I thought that I was already doing for a long time. In the end, the contacts start to lose some abilities, you notice the difference between your vision with one new contact and with one you use for months. Also, they start to give you more problems as time goes by.

Now you're pushing it there yikes :eek: I'm supposed to wear the 2 weeks contacts in my left eye and the monthly ones(toric) in my right , but to make things even, I wear them both for a month. Of course that's with the blessing of my doc :shrug: Your eyesight should not be messed around with :o
