Daily disposable contact lenses are single-use lenses that are removed and discarded at the end of each day, and a fresh pair of lenses is applied to the eyes the next morning. Daily contact lenses are gaining in popularity among practitioners and consumers for their health and convenience benefits.
Personally, I only wear daily contacts because number one, I am a lazy person. I do not want to deal with contact lens solution and storing contact lenses. Since I only wear contact lens for certain activities such as basketball or on a Saturday night out, it makes perfect logic to only wear dailies.
Here are 5 reason why a daily disposable contact lenses might be the best option for you:
- Comfort – Since daily contact lens are replaced daily, fresh new contacts are worn each time. With less time for deposits to build on the lenses, each wear provides the patient with the best wearing comfort.
- Health – Study and research have shown daily disposable contacts are 6x less likely to cause contact lens related problems than 2 week and 1 month disposable contacts.
- Convenience – With all that’s going on from work to children to social lives, we are apt to forget or ignore cleaning and changing contacts. While neglecting this part of contact lens care can pose risks to their eyes, dailies make cleaning unnecessary and changing a breeze.
- Cost – Yes an year supply of daily contact lenses are certainly more expensive than a 2 week or 1 month disposable, but if you are a part-time wearer say once or twice a week contact lens wear…you are actually saving money. Also keep in mind, you don’t have to purchase contact lens cleaning solution anymore.
- Availability – As technology continues to improve in the contact lens industry, new daily contacts lenses are popping up in the market. Whether it’s astigmatism correcting dailies or multi-focal dailies to help you see distance and near, there is a daily contact lens for your visual needs.
