How long before my ICL procedure do I need to stop wearing contact lenses
I use a two week guideline for my patients. It's reasonable. If you leave them out longer, it's ok. I wouldn't leave them out for a shorter window though. Two weeks is pretty typical for most surgeries- assuming that it's some variety of soft lens.
