Contact Lens Fitting Questions

The process of contact lens fitting can be confusing for both novice and veteran wearers. Freshlady will give you the answers to these questions in this article.

Q1. Contact lens replacement cycle?

It refers to the number of contact lens replacements scheduled in a year and is a complete set of contact lens care plans. Your replacement cycle is determined by your contact lens technician based on the type of contact lens and your characteristics. Replacement intervals generally range from one to three months.

Q2. Do I have to discard my 2-week replacement contact lenses after 2 weeks if I have been wearing them for less than 2 weeks?

Soft contact lenses replaced once every 2 weeks should be discarded after 2 weeks from the date of opening, whether they are used or not.

Q3. Can I still use my contact lenses after they have expired?

Please do not use contact lenses that have expired.

The quality of the product is only guaranteed for the period of use.

Q4.I purchased contact lenses that can be worn continuously, how long can I wear them continuously?

If you choose to wear contact lenses continuously, have your eye doctor examine you first and follow your doctor’s instructions.

Q5. For soft contact lenses that are replaced once a day, can I wear them for as long as I want within 24 hours?


Once-a-day contact lenses are meant to be worn from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed (all-day wear). They cannot be used 24 hours a day.

Also, the time you can safely and comfortably wear contact lenses varies from person to person.

Please consult your ophthalmologist about the appropriate wearing time for you.

Q6. Will it be impossible to remove contact lenses because they are deep in the eye?

Because the deeper part of the eyelid is pocketed, contact lenses will not enter the opposite direction of the inside of the eye.

However, once they enter deep into the eyelid, it may be difficult to remove them by yourself.

If you cannot remove them yourself, please seek help from an ophthalmologist.

Q7. I suddenly feel pain (or a foreign body sensation, etc.) during contact lens wear. What should I do?

If your eyes feel slightly abnormal (eye discharge, congestion, pain, foreign body sensation, etc.), stop wearing them and have them checked by an eye doctor.

Q8. What should I do if I can’t tell if my contact lenses are right or left?

After wearing contact lenses, please cover one eye alternately with the palm of your hand, etc., look at the distance, and use a comparison method to judge.

If the prescriptions of the left and right lenses differ, you can confirm the left and right lenses by this method.

If you cannot confirm the difference by this method, please consult the prescribing ophthalmologist or the vendor. To avoid confusion between the left and right lenses, it is recommended to keep a record of the lens data and decide in advance which side of the left and right lenses you will start wearing regularly.

Q9. What should I do if I feel like killing my eyes when I wear contact lenses?

Soap or cosmetics stuck on your fingers may be sticking to your contact lenses.

Please wash your hands again carefully.

If it is a soft contact lens that is replaced once a day

Please throw away the old lenses and wear new ones. If the situation does not improve, consult your eye doctor.

For soft contact lenses that are changed once every 2 weeks

Please rinse the lenses and try them again. If there is no improvement, wear new lenses. If there is still no improvement, consult your eye doctor.

Q10. What should I do if I lose my contact lens without noticing it? What should I do?

If it is a soft contact lens that is replaced once a day

Please discard the dropped lens and use a new one.

For soft contact lenses that are replaced once every 2 weeks

Please rinse the lenses well until they are clean and make sure they are not broken before using them.

Q 11. How do I determine the right fitting schedule for me?

Your eye care professional will determine your wear schedule based on your corneal health, lifestyle, preferences, and contact lens type.
