You can use the lenses after one month also.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

Monthly disposable contact lenses are meant to be used for one month and if you are using them only for 15-20 days in a month the you can extend their use for the remaining ten days in the next month.
But you need to store the lens in the lens case with lens solution as advised with frequent change of lens solution.
If you are storing the lens in the lens case and changing the lens solution as advised you can use the contact lenses for another 7-10 days.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
