Hi guys, I just had a question that I was hoping an optometrist can answer regarding contact lenses. So monthly contacts, as the name implies, should last you a month. Does that mean that they are good for you to wear for 30 days (every day for a month), or can they last you longer depending on how often you wear them (like if you wear your monthly contacts every other day, is it ok to use them for 2 months)? I'm a dental student and in debt lol and I don't wear my contacts every day, so just trying to see if this is a corner I can cut to save money while also making sure I don't mess up my eyes lol. Thank y'all in advance!
