Disposable Contact Lenses
Getting disposable contact lenses is a good choice for staying comfortable and getting fresh contacts when you need them. When you have disposable lenses, make sure that you take care of them correctly. There are many different types of disposable contacts and each needs its own care. Be sure to keep them in the package until just before you use them. Then, unless your contacts are dailies, you always need to have the right contact solution for your contacts. An optometrist can recommend the type of solution that you need to use with your specific contacts.
Unless you have dailies, your contacts need to be kept in a clean case every night that is filled with fresh solution. Never reuse the solution from one night to the next, and don't let your contacts sit in a dry case. Change your case periodically to make sure the one you're using is clean and sanitary. Not taking proper care of your disposable contact lenses can lead to eye infections and other problems.
Different Types of Disposable Contacts
Disposable contact lenses aren't meant to be worn very long. They should be worn for the prescribed amount of time and then thrown away. There are daily contacts that are worn all day and simply thrown away at night. Bi-weekly contacts are worn for two full weeks and then thrown out. Monthly contact lenses are worn for a month before they are thrown away.
The one that you choose may be the one that the optometrist recommends, or you may choose a type according to your personal preference. Think about how long you want to wear them and how this could affect you. For some people with eye allergies, using daily contacts is often better. It allows you to throw away the contacts each day so that no film builds up on them. They are also a good choice if you have dry eye.
