Do I need to give my eyes a rest from contacts? Do they need time to ‘breathe’?

Your eyes don’t usually need a rest from lenses. Unless your optician recommends otherwise, you can safely wear them every day. Newer generation contact lenses are made with the latest silicone hydrogel materials, which provide much more oxygen to the eye than traditional soft lenses. The more oxygen your eyes get, the healthier and clearer they’ll be.
