Disposable contact lenses have become an increasingly popular option amongst contact wearers today. An alternative to hard lenses of the past and RGP lenses of today, soft contacts are widely considered to be more comfortable and wearable. Disposable contact lenses come in many different varieties. Your trusted eye care professional at Davich Optical can help you choose the best disposable lens option for your needs.
Daily disposable contact lenses offer crystal clear vision without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. You simply open a new pair each day, and dispose of them at night before bed. With dailies, dangerous buildup normally associated with longer-wear contact lenses is no longer an issue. There is also much lower risk of developing contact-related eye infections sometimes associated with monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses.
Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses
Monthly and bi-weekly disposable contact lenses require more upkeep than daily disposables, requiring cleaning and storage in proper contact lens solution. They are, however, more economical overall, since less material goes into making them and you don’t have to replace them as often. Additionally, monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses offer the option of extended wear. Some lenses provide up to 30 days of continuous day and night wear without having to remove them daily.
Many disposable contact lenses, of all varieties, also offer tints and colors that may enhance or change your natural eye color. For more information or to learn more about which type of disposable contact lens is right for you, call Davich Optical today.
