Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days. They come in many different varieties and it is important to know which is best for you. Below is a brief description 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. However, monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses offer the possibility of extended wear, which allows up to 30 days of continuous day and night contact lens wear, without the necessity of taking them out.
Daily 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 that can be associated with bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses are not an issue with dailies and the chances of developing a contact lens related eye infection is reduced.
Many disposable contact lenses, of all varieties, also offer tints and colors that may accent your natural eye color or change your eye color altogether. For more information, speak with your eye doctor today.
