Disposable daily contact lenses: the easy way to wear contact lenses

Are you considering disposable daily contact lenses?

For many people who require corrective lenses, contacts are an attractive option. Not only do they offer more precise correction and a wider field of vision compared to spectacles, but they also don't change your appearance. But for many people, the hassle of maintaining the lenses can be an annoyance that you simply don't want to deal with. After all, the mornings are busy enough without you needing to worry about caring for your contact lenses too. That's why disposable lenses were developed - to make wearing contact lenses simple and trouble-free. With this kind of lens, you simply put a fresh pair in every morning and throw them away at night. You never have to worry about cleaning or disinfecting them.

Can I use disposable daily contact lenses?

In the past, disposable lenses could only be worn for specific conditions. However, the technologies and manufacturing methods have improved dramatically over the past few years so that there is much more choice available.

Today, daily disposables are available to provide a simple and effective option for a wide range of vision problems.

Whether you are nearsighted or farsighted, or have a condition such as presbyopia or astigmatism, disposable contacts can provide a solution. Daily disposable lenses even come as coloured, for example, Freshlook 1 Day Colours, so there really is a daily lens to suit everyone.

Find out how disposable daily contact lenses work

All daily disposable contact lenses are manufactured from a soft material that is comfortable to wear and conforms to the shape of your eye.

Materials such as silicone hydrogel are commonly used because they offer a degree of gas permeability. This means that they allow oxygen to get through the lens and to the eye, keeping the eyes healthy and ensuring comfort.

Opticians agree that daily contacts are one of the healthiest options for your eyes because the lenses never have the chance to build up deposits or irritants.

Additionally, disposables are a good choice for those who suffer from allergies, such as hay fever, as they are the least likely to aggravate your eyes. This is especially true because you won't be using cleaning solutions, which could trigger problems.

Whatever your reasons for choosing disposable lenses, you'll find that using them is incredibly simple. All you have to do is insert a new pair every morning and throw them away at night before you go to bed. The next morning, you'll have a fresh new pair waiting for you to put in.
