If you’re one of the 30 million people who wear contact lenses or are considering wearing contacts, daily contact lenses are a great alternative to traditional contact lenses. Daily contact lenses have been available for a while, but many people aren’t aware of them.
Perfect for a person’s busy schedule, daily contact lenses are lenses that are disposed of each day as opposed to being cleaned and stored before going to bed.
Daily Contact Lenses vs. Traditional Contact Lenses:
- Daily Lenses are healthier to use because there is less chance of infection
- Daily Lenses are more comfortable especially for those who have dry eyes
- Daily Lenses are disposed of each day so there is no need to purchase solutions, which is necessary for traditional contact lenses
- Daily Lenses are typically more comfortable for contact lens wearers
Fortunately almost anyone can use daily contact lenses. There are even daily contact lens options for those who need astigmatism correction or even bifocals!
“There really is no better option for new contact lens wearers,” says Dr. Robert Fox, optometrist with Griffey Eye Care and Laser Center in Chesapeake, Virginia. “Especially for teenagers because they are convenient and easy to use. There is no need to purchase cleaning solutions or to even have a contact lens case. Just dispose of them at the end of the day.”
If you’re interested in getting daily contact lenses, contact your physician for an eye exam and a contact lens fitting. Find out more about eye exams and contact lenses here.
