Monthly contacts are a disposable soft contact lens that is good to use for up to 30 days. After 30 days, the lens must be thrown away and replaced with a new pair.
Once you put in a pair of monthly contacts, these lenses must be thrown away after 30 days regardless of how much you wear them. Even if you only wear them a few times, the bacteria growth on the lens makes it unsafe to keep in your eye past 30 days.
Dailies are the safest contact lenses available today. A study shows that monthly contact lens wearers are up to four times more likely to have a serious vision complication compared to single use daily contact lens wearers.
No. Because you put the same contact lens in your eye everyday, it is not safe to shower in monthly contacts. While tap water is somewhat clean, it is not entirely free of bacteria and other bugs that can grow in your contact lenses.
