And oh, I didn't know I needed to change the case as well! And okay thank you! I'll make sure to set a scheduled timed to take care of them then, that's probably the smartest thing to do . And uhh maybe one more question, how long do you personally find you can wear your lenses for? Cause I know you're not supposed to wear them for more than 8 hours or something, but what if I am unable to take them out in time and all that? Have you experienced that? Does it really bother your eyes if you keep them in for longer?
Um, it can depend on the day, if I woke up with dry eyes I need eye drops before I can wear contacts (of any kind, not just colored lenses), but once they're in I can wear them up to 14 hours, though they'll be a little dry after 12?
Disclaimer: I really don't suggest doing that though, and I don't do that very often, but if I do end up wearing them for that long I'll usually wear glasses the next day to give my eyes a break.
It doesn't bother me to wear them for that long, but I'm kinda used to it after, idk, 13 years? 8 hours isn't really a hard limit, just listen to your eyes and take the contacts out if they're uncomfortable. I'd suggest carrying eyedrops and also taking the contact case with you to the con, just in case you can't drop by your hotel room and take them out.
