Monthly Disposables Contact Lenses Information

Despite often being described as less convenient than dailies, monthly disposables are still the most popular type of contact lens in the UK.

Yes, they have to be disinfected and stored at the end of each day but they are more durable and comfortable (for some wearers) than dailies. In addition, they tend to be slightly thicker, which makes them easier to see, handle, apply and remove. You’re far less likely to lose a monthly disposable contact lens in the sink as they’re easier to spot.

Monthly disposable contact lenses can be taken in and out at will unlike dailies, which have to be thrown away after each wear.

The majority of monthly disposable contact lenses are made from silicone hydrogel materials. These tend to have a higher water content, which makes for better oxygen permeability. In short, monthlies are by and large more breathable than dailies. Up to seven times more oxygen can filter through the lens, which means eyes stay hydrated constantly. It also means the lens wearer is less likely to suffer from dryness, itchiness, tired eyes and even corneal ulcers.

If you do decide to go with monthly disposable contact lenses you must be prepared to adhere to the cleaning routine. Fail to do so and you’re highly likely to get an eye infection. Over the course of a day, even the most deposit-resistant substance will accumulate protein, calcium and dirt deposits, even if they’re not visible to the naked eye. Thorough cleansing after each wear remedies this. If you have particularly irritable eyes, you may be better off with dailies.
