When it comes to convenience and hygiene, daily disposable contact lenses are unbeatable. This is the way to go if you want a lens that can be worn consistently for an average of 12 hours and instantly disposed of on removal.
With dailies, there’s no messing about with time-consuming cleaning and rinsing routines. Nor will you have to be concerned with storage. Monthly lenses are ok but if you go away for a night or on holiday, you’ve got to pack cleaning solution. Go for daily disposable contact lenses and simply take enough blister packs to last until you get home.
If you lose a pair of daily lenses it doesn’t matter so much as you’ll have a larger supply to fall back on. Lose a monthly lens and it’s a much bigger deal as you’ll have to move straight onto the next month’s supply.
Once upon a time, daily disposable contact lenses were flimsy, prone to tearing, difficult to see out of solution and incredibly fiddly. These days it’s a completely different story. Thanks to technological advancements, manufacturers are able to produce thinner and stronger lenses that are considerably more durable and easier to apply and remove.
Daily disposable contact lenses are arguably more hygienic than their monthly counterparts. As they get thrown away at the end of the day instead of re-used, you don’t have to worry about protein and deposit build-up on a lens, which can lead to dryness and irritation. In short, the possibility of infection is reduced. Most of the well-known manufacturers like Acuvue and Ciba Vision make Daily contact lenses.
