Roughly how long does it take to get used to contact lenses?


Your optician will give you a timetable, gradually increasing the length of time you wear your lenses, starting with a few hours every day.

It can take up to a fortnight to reach maximum wearing time with gas-permeable lenses, but it can be much quicker for soft lenses. You'll have to follow a routine of looking after your lenses unless you have daily disposable lenses.

Good hygiene and correct lens care is essential to keep your lenses and eyes in good condition, so make sure to stick to your care regime and attend regular aftercare visits.
