If you are a patient who experiences discomfort like dryness, burning, stinging, redness or blur while wearing contact lenses, if you suffer from eye allergies, or are prone to frequent eye infections as a result of your contact lenses, daily disposable contact lenses may be a better option for you. Daily disposable contacts offer a fresh, smooth lens surface every day and are gentler on irritated eyes. Most patients report that daily disposable contacts are as comfortable as wearing no lens at all.
The more frequently you replace your contact lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes can be. Even when cleaned and disinfected properly, deposits found naturally in your tears and allergens can build up on your contacts. These deposits make your contacts less comfortable than when they were new, and can also make your eyes more prone to infection.
Daily disposable contacts are worn once and then thrown away so you experience the optimal comfort and convenience of a fresh lens every day. No lens care, cases or solutions are required.
Daily disposable contacts are safe for full-time wear 365 days a year, but are also a smart choice for occasional contact wearers. If you wear glasses most of the time, but sometimes prefer contacts to accommodate your active lifestyle, daily disposables can be kept on-hand for those occasions. Unlike longer wear lenses that can only be stored safely after they have been worn for a short time, you can use and discard daily disposable contacts as needed.
Daily disposables are a great vision correction option for teens who are just beginning to wear contact lenses. By starting with a fresh pair of lenses daily, concerns that your teen is not properly caring for their lenses is eliminated and you can be confident that your teen is not jeopardizing their eye health.
Daily disposable lenses are available for people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism. If you would like to be more comfortable in your contact lenses or would like to free yourself from the cases and solutions that longer wear lenses require, ask your doctor if daily disposable lenses are right for you.
