Contact lens wearers seek easy to use, affordable contact options. Many wonder if daily disposables are a good value. When factoring in the benefits they are a great value.
Manufacturers have discovered innovative ways to produce lenses in mass quantities at a reduced cost. This has made the cost for contact lower in general. It has also increased the popularity in daily disposables.
The convenience of daily disposables is the draw for many to investigate the possibility of making the switch to them. The only accessories needed to take for overnights are the next pairs to be worn. Cleaning supplies are not needed. The lack of time needed for cleaning is a cost savings and a time saver.
Teenage contact users do well with disposables because they don’t have to clean them. Many teens wearing regular contacts neglect proper cleaning. This leads to problems ranging from discomfort to eye infection.
Extended wear lenses are worn overnight, but wearing them while sleeping is not ideal. Using a fresh pair of lenses each morning is advisable and a true health benefit. Daily disposables are healthier for users than extended wear. Many users of extended wear lenses have complaints of eye irritation from wearing the lenses while they sleep.
Tears contain substances that can build up on contact lenses. Protein, lipids and calcium accumulating on lenses is one of the main reason they must be cleaned with a solution nightly. Wearing contacts intended to be disposed of daily eliminates worry of anything building up on the lenses.
Lenses made for long term use are normally much more comfortable when they are new. They may become scratched or cloudy. Even the slightest imperfection can be detected when worn. Imperfections can be extremely painful and may cause irritation or infection. Often vision is compromised by slight damage and should be carefully maintained and checked regularly. This predicament is avoided with those lenses worn for one day only.
The majority of people can use disposables. They are made for those diagnosed with nearsightedness and farsightedness. Everyone benefits from the ease of use of them. Depending on lifestyle, some benefit more than others.
Workers spending their days in a dusty environment deal with the inconvenience of their lenses developing a dusty buildup. They become uncomfortable and resistant to being properly sanitized and cleaned. In such a situation daily disposables are a great option.
Sports enthusiasts needing glasses while competing also benefit from daily disposables if they find the glasses become a hindrance. Athletes participating in sports requiring goggles opt for a lens they can wear occasionally then dispose of at the day’s end.
The health benefits and convenience make disposables whether daily or monthly, a superior option for anyone using contact lenses. The cost is lessened due to advancements in the industry, making them an affordable option for most budgets.
