Try Contact Lenses

Should I Try Contact Lenses?

I started wearing glasses back in fifth grade, but switched over to try contact lenses during my freshman year of high school. Just the thought of wearing glasses while playing tennis seemed utterly unbearable. Ever since then, I have never turned back!

At the time, I was really hesitant about trying contact lenses, especially after hearing horror stories of these plastic lenses getting stuck in the back of people’s eyes. Truth is, this is one of many common misconceptions that surround contact lenses. Speaking of myths, let’s debunk some!

Myth: Contact lenses can get stuck in the back of your eye

Truth: Due to the anatomy of our eyes, it is literally impossible for contact lenses to get stuck in the back of your eye. Our eyes have a fornix, which is a folding of soft tissue that acts like a barrier by preventing foreign objects from getting into the back of our eye.

Myth: There is no way to find a contact lens that fits my eye or my prescription

Truth: Whether you have astigmatism or presbyopia (inability to focus on close objects), there is a lens for you! With modern-day technology, new lenses for minus prescriptions, plus prescriptions, astigmatism, and presbyopia are constantly being developed. We also fit both soft and hard lenses, and we can even make lenses that are custom to your eye if needed!

Myth: I’m too young / too old to be fit with contact lenses

Truth: Did you know that we have patients as young as 3 years old and as young as 70 years old who wear contact lenses? Truth is, no one is too young or too old to try contact lenses!

Now that we’ve debunked some frightening misconceptions that are commonly thrown around, you may be wondering: What special  benefits do contact lenses have that glasses don’t?

fogging with glasses, try contact lenses

No fogging: With the ongoing pandemic, a common struggle we’ve heard our patients express is that their glasses tend to fog up when they wear their masks. Aside from the pandemic, patients complain about their glasses fogging up when drinking hot, soupy foods like ramen or pho. Luckily, with contact lenses, this is not an issue!

Your vision will feel more natural, and you’ll have a wider, more clear field of view: Since contact lenses sit on your eye, you get to experience a full 180 degrees of clear vision, rather than being limited by the size of your glasses frame. In addition, you won’t have to experience the sensation of having something sitting on your face, adding to a more natural sense of vision as you go about your daily life.

Useful for a multitude of specialty and everyday tasks: Whether you love to play sports or work at a job where you’re constantly having to alternate between looking up and down, glasses can often become a nuisance. For some people, that nuisance may come in the form of glasses sliding down frequently. For others, it may be the fear of getting your glasses knocked off and broken. With contact lenses, you can say good riddance to those inconveniences!

Whether you are super eager or are on the fence about trying out contact lenses, we’ll be sure to make the process as easy and comfortable as we can. To start off, we want to be absolutely sure that we find a lens that is perfect for you! To accomplish this, we offer contact lens follow-ups for up to 60 days, just to ensure we have plenty of time to trial and error through as many lenses as needed.

All sample contact lenses we dispense is included in our contact lens fitting fee in order to dissolve any financial burdens that may hinder you from finding your perfect lens. In addition, we carry a wide range of contact lenses, which enables us to find a lens that is not only comfortable for you, but also fits within your lifestyle and budget.

Whether you want colored lenses, or lenses that can replace your reading glasses so you have one less thing to carry around, we have it all! We also provide training on how to insert, remove, and properly care for your lenses in order to equip you as you start this new journey. Whether you need one training or three, they are all included with our contact lens fitting fee!

How Are Daily Contact Lenses Different From Monthly Contacts?

If you wear contact lenses, you may have tried both monthly contact lenses and daily contact lenses before. You may have also asked yourself, “What is the difference between a daily contact lens from a monthly contact lens?” 

(Milan, Italy)

In one corner, we have the undisputed champion of convenience – DAILY CONTACT LENSES!

In another corner, we have the undefeated champion of value – MONTHLY CONTACT LENSES!

So exactly how are daily contact lenses different from monthly contact lenses? Let’s explore the obvious and obscure differences. 


Daily contact lenses are worn for just a single day. Pop them open in the morning, wear them throughout the day and toss them in the trash when you are done wearing them. 

Monthly contact lenses are worn for the whole month. Open a new pack to start the month, reuse the same contact lenses by storing them in disinfecting solution each night, throw them out after one month of opening a new pack. 

Daily contact lenses are famous for being more convenient than monthly contacts. Simply open a new packet each day and toss when you are done with your wear. No contact lens solution necessary, no need to keep a schedule or thinking about avoiding over-wear. 

However, daily contacts are more costly compared to monthly contacts. A year supply of daily contacts is equal to 720 lenses for both eyes compared to a year supply of monthly contacts of 24. The quantity difference results in a huge cost difference too. Here is an estimate of price ranges for a year supply of contact lenses: 

Daily lenses: $400 to $900 
Monthly lenses: $200 to $450

Keep in mind, cost for contact lenses can differ depending on brand, package size, manufacturer’s rebate and more.  

Lastly, because daily lenses encourage better contact lens wearing habits and you are not reusing the same lens over and over, daily lenses are the healthiest type of contacts for your eyes.

Back in 2001, Johnson & Johnson the makers of the popular contact lens brand Acuvue settled in a class-action lawsuit. In the end, Johnson & Johnson paid out roughly $860 million to consumers.

The reason behind the lawsuit? The suit claimed Johnson & Johnson had misled consumers and eye doctors that their Acuvue 1-day lenses had some type of special physical property that limited its use to 1 day when, in fact, they were identical to regular Acuvue lenses, which were bi-weekly contacts. 

Acuvue 1-day and regular Acuvue lenses have since been discontinued but the question still lingers, are daily contact lenses physically the same as bi-weekly or monthly contact lenses?

After deep research, the answer is NO. Daily contact lenses are not physically the same as a bi-weekly or monthly contact lens. Here is an interesting example of a daily vs. 2-week disposable (note the same brand name “Oasys”): 

Daily: Acuvue Oasys 1-Day With HydraLuxe vs. Monthly: Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus

Looking closely at the lens details, there are some obvious physical difference between center of thickness, Dk/t (oxygen transmissibility), BC (base curve) and diameter or size of the contacts. The biggest difference is the technology, which makes up the coating of the lenses themselves. 


There are obvious and some obscure differences between daily and monthly contact lenses as mentioned above. Daily contact lenses are trending up and being prescribed more and more as our visual demands have increased due to technology. I predict by 2030, everyone will be wearing daily contact lens.

Not all type of contact lenses are made the same. Personally, I have tested and tried to wear daily contact lenses for more than one day. After the second day, the contact lenses just do not feel good anymore.

If you are extending your contact lens wear longer than what your eye doctor recommends, consider asking yourself this question, “What’s the worst that can happen?

Remember your eyes are too valuable to be put at risk! You only get 2 eyeballs in your life. Enjoy your best vision throughout your life and see what really matters.

Advantages of Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

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: 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
