How long can I really wear one-day contacts?
I want to know if I can wear one-day contacts for maybe two consecutive days but only 4 hours each of those two days. If so, do you think it would be a good idea if I saved them in my contact container for a week and then wear them for another two days only 4 hours each. That's eight hours a week for two weeks for a total of 16 hours wearing them. The thing is I dont want to buy regular contacts cause I only really need them twice a week for four to five hours and I dont want to keep regular two week contacts because of the chance for protein buildup and bacteria etc if they are sitting around. I dont want to wear my glasses when I go out. Btw the contacts are freshlook color blends if that matters.

As an add-on to the question, does anyone know how long I can keep the two-week long contacts if Im wearing them for the same period of time (Four hours for two days a week). Could I keep them for up to 4-6 weeks?

I've read that two-week disposables are actually the same product as one-day disposables (what a rip-off, right?). Because of this, as long as you have a solution intended for killing bacteria and preventing protein buildup, you should have no problem using them for two weeks in the way you describe.

I heard that one-day lenses can last up to 1-2 weeks.

uuuuhhh mabe 24 hr. ask ur doc.

Generally speaking 1 day of lens wear is 8-14 hours, so wearing dailies for 4 hours a day means that you should be able to get 3 days wear out of one pair.

If you're thinking of doing the same with weeklys 2 weeklys or monthys, then once they start to feel gritty thats the time to throw them out and use a fresh pair

If you're careful, you can do at least the first half of what you're describing -- wearing them for a short period of time on two consecutive days. It's important to use a proper cleaning / disinfecting solution, not just saline, for cleaning and storing them in between. Leaving them soaking for a week probably isn't the best idea, and the daily disposable lenses tend to get weak if you're handling them too much, so I wouldn't recommend wearing them again more than once or twice a day or two apart.

To clarify what some of the above posters have been getting at:
One-day contacts are often made of the same material as the biweekly or monthly kind, but they aren't made as durable. (Monthly lenses are thicker, and most of them have surface treatments to prevent bacteria, proteins, etc from building up, as well as to keep them moist and comfortable longer.) I've seen more than one person try wearing daily-disposable lenses for a month, and they end up dissolving into pieces one day when you're trying to remove them. They are absolutely not the same thing, nor are they interchangeable.
