Daily Disposables

Is it better to have daily disposable lenses or those that last longer?

This is often a matter of personal choice. You do not need to clean and disinfect single use daily disposable lenses after each use, as you simply throw them away. This can be a good option for people who do not wear their lenses very often or who want maximum convenience. This may also be more hygienic than cleaning, disinfecting and re-wearing old lenses. Not all contact lens types or prescriptions are available as single use daily disposable lenses.

If you wear lenses a lot, single use daily disposable lenses may cost more than monthly disposable lenses (those that you clean and disinfect and then wear again) but they can be a fantastic choice if you want lenses for sport or for social wear.
