With so many options to choose from in contact lenses, the first decision one needs to make is daily disposable vs. longer term disposable. The two main categories of lenses you should be aware of are monthly disposable and daily disposable. Each has its’ benefits and the idea is to choose the one that best fits your lifestyle.
Monthly contact lenses have been the choice of many wearers for many years. With monthlies, you will find the cost somewhat less expensive than daily lenses. Also, many wearers like the idea of less interaction with their lenses a opposed to a daily routine.
Use of Daily contacts by wearers is growing every day. Daily contact lens wearers report that they like the idea of just throwing away the lenses at the end of the day. No cleaning. No hassle. No solutions and cleaning is required.
It has also been shown that dailies are better for your eyes because minimal handling leads to fewer pathogens on the lens surface which sometimes can lead to eye infections.
The type of lens you wear can also be determined by your prescription so check with our eye doctor at Envision Eye Care when looking to make the shift from monthly to dailies.
