Contact Lenses

I have a piece of very practical advice for those of you that are contact lense wearers.

About a year ago my eye doctor decided to switch me from Acuvue Oasys, a very
breathable lense to Air Optix Night and Day.

Small confession I have here peeps... you ready?!

I sleep in my contacts for days, weeks, sometimes even months at a time!!!!!!!
You do whaaaaaaaaaa???
Yes, Yes, it's true and I am here to publicly confess to you all.

So, I have been wearing these contacts for over a year now and LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
These lenses have the highest level of breathability of any other lense I am aware of on
the market. Now, the commercials or website will tell you you can sleep in them for days
at a time.... well, some of us (cough, cough) may do that a little more!

My doctor told me I could sleep in them for a week-two weeks at a time with taking
them out once a night to give my eyes a break. I will let you be the one to decide if
I do that very often!

You can wear them for a month at a time and then you need to switch out to a new pair.
They are a little more expensive than the Acuvue, but in my opinion SO worth it if
you like to sleep in you contacts.


  1. Ha. I would sleep in contacts too just I didn't have to try to stick something in my eyeball on a regular basis.

  2. be careful with that! my mom slept in her contacts for the longest time. she went back to eye doctor and they made her leave her contacts out for 6 months. she had starved her eyes of oxygen. so just be aware!

  3. I confess.... I do the same... But I can't stand waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to see... I tried the Air Optix and they caused me to have weird reactions but I'm thinking of trying them again bc my lenses aren't breathable at all so I know it's bad for my eyes... I can't wear any Acuvue bc they have a high silicone content which my eyes must be allergic to ( says my doc)


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
