Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Do you struggle to keep your contact lenses clean and disinfected? Do you have ocular allergies? Are you an occasional contact lens wearer or prefer to only wear your contact lenses while exercising or playing sports? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, daily disposable contact lenses may be the right option for you.
Daily disposable contact lenses are designed to be worn for a single day, and then thrown away. You don’t need to clean them or buy expensive solutions. In fact, you don't even need a contact lens case unless you want to take the lenses out for a while. This flexibility in contact lens care makes daily disposable lenses by far the most convenient replacement schedule for any contact lens wearer.
Not only are daily replacement lenses convenient, they also offer the best vision, comfort, and health for your eyes because you are wearing a fresh pair of lenses every day. Another benefit to wearing a fresh pair of lenses everyday is that there is minimal chance for harmful bacteria or proteins to build up on the surface of the lens. This is especially helpful for those who suffer from ocular allergies or those with sensitive eyes. In all, daily disposable contacts are considered the safest and healthiest type of contact lens for all eyes.
The number one concern regarding daily replacement lenses is cost. Most people believe replacing your lenses every day is a lot more expensive because you need 365 pairs for a full 1 year supply. However, when comparing total wearing costs for a 1-year supply of other lenses, the cost is comparable – often less expensive, since there is no need to purchase expensive solutions and cases for your lenses!
