Despite popular belief, comfort-related issues with contacts, is not normal. In fact, 73% of wearers don’t plan to tell their eye care providers because most think it’s normal. ‡ You should expect a full one-month of wear from your monthly contacts. If you are experiencing comfort issues with your contacts, you should reach out to your doctor to find a better fit for your eyes.

^‖ Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.^WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude geography cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.
