Is this the Same as Extended Wear?

Absolutely NOT! Ortho-K and Extended Wear are two very different things.

Ortho-K lenses are worn ONLY at night and NOT worn during the day.
Extended Wear is a term that is usually used with soft contact lenses that are worn continuously, during the day and at night while sleeping, for long periods of time; at times for a week or even 30 days.

We do not advocate wearing lenses on an extended wear basis. Wearing lenses without removing them for even a few days does not allow enough oxygen to reach the cornea.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
