Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days. As an alternative to hard lenses of the past and rigid gas permeable lenses of today, they are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you. Below, our trusted eyecare professionals give you a brief explanation of some of the major types of disposable contact lenses on the market today.
Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses
Monthly and bi-weekly disposable contact lenses require more upkeep than daily disposables, requiring daily cleaning and storage in proper contact lens solution. They can be more economical overall if contact lenses are worn every day.
Disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative because they offer the same crystal clear vision without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. Daily disposables allow contact lens wearers the ability to simply throw away each day's pair of contacts before bed and open a brand new pair the very next day to enjoy the benefits and comfort of clean, clear, crisp contact lenses. Deposits, and the chances of developing contact lens related eye infections, normally associated with bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses, are no longer an issue.
Many disposable contact lenses also offer tints and colours that may accent your natural eye colour or change your eye colour altogether. Those with Presbyopia also have options available in daily disposable contact lenses. For more information, speak with your eye doctor today.
