Disposable Contact Lenses - What Are the Benefits?

By Tanya Turner

Many people need vision correction, but hate wearing glasses each and every day. Glasses change your appearance, can get in the way or fall off. They also get wet when it is raining and mist up in the heat. Contact lenses have none of these problems. Most popular modern contacts are disposable contact lenses. They require very little care, are healthy for your eyes and usually cost less than a pair of quality eyeglasses. Can disposable contacts make your life easier and more fun?

Daily disposable lenses - doctor's choice

You can choose from several types of disposable contact lenses. A very popular choice is daily lenses. You put in a brand new pair every morning. These types of lenses have several advantages - no cleaning and storing fuss, daily disposables provide very clear vision because the lens is perfectly clean every time you put it in and you save on cleaning solutions. Some people think that throw away contact lenses are inferior in quality compared to traditional contacts. This is not true - the only difference is that disposables are much thinner which is actually good for your eyes, because the lens let more oxygen through. Daily disposable lenses are also very good for people who wear their contacts infrequently - it is better to open a fresh pair when you need it than to let your lenses soak in the solution for a week.

Most popular brands of daily lenses are Acuvue 1 Day, Soflens 1 Day and Focus Dailies. See reviews of healthy disposable contacts

Monthly and weekly disposable contacts

Other disposable contacts you must throw away weekly, every two weeks, or once a month. These lenses would cost you less than daily disposable contacts, and they are also good for the health of your eyes. Most popular choices here are Acuvue 2 weeks and its improved version Acuvue Oasys, as well as Focus Monthly and Soflens 59. You should talk to your eye doctor to decide which option is best for you.

Disposable contacts have a distinct advantage over traditional lenses. The old kind required costly and time consuming cleaning. Modern disposable contact lenses simply need to soak in a multi-purpose solution overnight. No more rubbing and protein removing tablets. Use solutions that are 'no rub' so you don't have to worry about cleaning your disposable contact lenses at all.

And did you know that you can also buy disposable contact lenses that change your eye color? If you are bored with your current eye color and want to try something new, you can kill two birds with one shot - correct your vision and change your appearance. Color contact lenses come in prescription as well as non-prescription. So even people who don't need vision correction, can wear disposable color contacts.

No matter what lenses you select, remember that your eyes are a sensitive area of your body. You should follow your doctor's instructions and wear your lenses only for the time suggested by your doctor because your eyes need to breath. Also make sure you care for your disposable contact lenses as advised by your eye care professional.
