    Yes, of course you can wear the monthly contact lenses. As we know, the contact lenses are a kind of lenses worn directly on the eyeballs. It can be divided into many types because of the difference of mould, such as daily disposable contact lenses, monthly contact lenses, half a year contact lenses and yearly contact lenses. You can base on your hobby to choose one. They will be safe for you on the precondition that you have the good habit of hygiene. In addition, you should keep in mind that cleaning the monthly contact lenses every day which may be stuck with protein after a day wearing.

    Yes, it is safe as you take care of it properly. I am nearsighted and have experiencing of wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses. Though monthly contact lenses are not consider the same good as daily disposable contact lenses, but it is more economic than daily disposable contact lenses. Besides, as long as you take off the contact lenses and clean the lenses with contact lenses solution every day, it is as safe as you wear daily disposable contact lenses. Good luck.

    It depends. I think daily contact lenses are better than monthly contact lenses. Monthly contact lenses are also called extended contact lenses, that is to say, they can be worn for 30 days and nights without remove them. It is very convenient for people who do not have much time to clean them on a daily basis. However, it increases the risk of infection from that way. And it could cause giant papillary conjuctivitis(GPC) that is a common condition for monthly contact lenses wearers. At the same time, it could cause corneal edema when the eye does not receive enough oxygen, especially when you sleep in contact lenses.

    Yes, it is ok to wear monthly contact lenses. It is hard to say that whether monthly contact lenses are better than daily disposable contacts or not. It depends on your need because both of them have their own advantage. In term of health and safe, I think daily disposable contact lenses are much better than monthly contact lenses. Daily disposable contact lenses are used only for one day. Monthly contact lenses must clean with contact-lens fluid every day you stop using them and you may not clean up the cover of the contact lenses. That will have dirty thing on them. So, it cleaner and safer to use daily disposable contact lenses. However, in term of quality and price, monthly contact lenses are better than daily disposable contact lenses. Because monthly contact lenses are used for a month, so they are made in better material and they can be easily to wear. And their prices are more expensive than daily disposable contact lenses. At last, I want to say that if you use your contact lenses only few times and want to have least damage to your eyes, I advise you to use daily disposable contact lenses. If you want use your contacts more times and use least money, I advise you to use monthly contact lenses.
