Contacts are a popular choice for vision correction. There are many different types of contact lenses to choose from based on your refractive error and lifestyle. At Advanced Eyecare, serving Raytown, Raymore, and Blue Springs, MO, our optometrist offers a variety of contact lenses, including a daily contact lens. Daily lenses are simple and easy to use.
What Is a Daily Contact Lens?
Daily lenses are disposable lenses, meaning they are ones that you wear and throw away. These particular lenses are prescribed by our eye doctor and are single-use contacts. You wear them for one day and then dispose of them at the end of the day before bed. Once you take these contacts out, you should not try to reuse them.
Benefits of Daily Lenses
When you opt for a daily lens, there is less risk of developing calcium deposits in your lenses. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about bacteria and other microbes accumulating on your lenses. Therefore, you're less likely to develop an eye infection from these contacts. You don't have to worry about placing dirty or dry contacts in your eyes that are likely to irritate your eyes and make you more susceptible to infection.
Additionally, you don't have to clean your contacts each night. Therefore, they're much easier to use than extended-wear contacts, so they're beneficial for patients who want low-maintenance contact lenses. You won't need to have a huge stock of contact solutions to ensure your contacts are clean because you won't need to soak them unless you get something on your contacts.
Types of Daily Lenses
Whether you have a normal prescription or require a specialized kind of contact, you can get it as a single-use contact. For instance, you can opt for a daily contact lens even if you require a toric contact lens for astigmatism. With this condition, your eye isn't shaped like a traditional eyeball, which hinders light from reaching your retina. A toric contact lens is a special shape that accommodates this eye-shape abnormality.
In addition, we offer a variety of brands. We provide Alcon contact lenses, Precision1 contacts, and other brands.
