First day of wearing contact lenses... question!!!?
Two days ago I was given my pair of trial contact lenses, so today I was only supposed to wear them for 2 hours, 3 hours max. I was supposed to gradually add two hours of wearing them each day (i.e, the next day, 4 hours). Yesterday I lost track of time and forgot they were in there so I left the contacts in for 9 hours.
Is this a BIG problem or just no big deal?
How many hours do I wear them today/tomorrow?

It's not a big deal although it may have caused your eyes from irritation because they are not used to having contacts in. If you wore them today for nine hours then just reduce the time tomorrow for about five hours if you're concerned, or leaving them in all day. Contacts are meant to be worn all day and taken out at night. Just be sure to take them out before bed. Don't stress!

meh. no biggie. i don't even tell my patients to "build up" their wearing time anymore when they're wearing soft disposable lenses. thats old school. i only do the "build up wearing time" thing on specialty lenses like gas perms & hybrids.

if you're wearing soft, disposable lenses...you're fine.

Contact Lens King
Don't worry about what happened. Gradually increasing your contact lens wear is a very old method and one that is rarely used with soft contact lenses, and especially with the new lens materials that have come into the market in the last 5 years. Many years ago when semi-rigid lenses or even the older hard lenses were used they were manufactured using lens materials that did not allow oxygen to pass through easily. So the eye doctors had to get your eyes to get used to the lower oxygen levels and that had to be done gradually. Now all that is over. You should check with your eye doctor to get your answer on how many hours you can wear the lenses today or tomorrow but I suspect you will be able to use them for your waking hours without a problem.
