Daily Contact Lenses
Daily contact lenses are contact lenses that are worn and discarded within the span of one day. These lenses are designed to last the user from morning to evening, before getting a new and fresh pair of lenses the following morning.
Are there Any Benefits to Using Dailies?
Daily contact lenses are becoming the go-to choice for many consumers. So, what benefits do these lenses have?
1. No need to clean them
Since these lenses are discarded at the end of the day, there is no need for the nightly cleaning routine. Also, there is no need for the long parade of solution bottles, thus you make huge savings. All you have to do is get rid of the used ones and grab a pair of new ones.
2. Reduced build-up thus fewer allergies
As Contact Lenses are used over time, lipids, calcium, protein and other substances start to build up on the lenses. This is especially the case for biweeklies and monthlies. These substances are present in tears. As these deposits increase in size, they pose a large risk of infection or allergies. Also, they make the contact lenses very uncomfortable. Even though the lenses can be cleaned, this does not solve the problem entirely.
In the case of dailies, daily replacement reduces all chances of build-up of these substances on the lenses, minimizing the risk of complications and ensuring total comfort when using your contacts.
3. Dailies have a simple wear schedule
Contact lenses need replacing on a certain schedule. In the case of monthlies, you have to mark your calendar and remember to replace your contacts. In the case of dailies, replacement is done daily, and there is no need to mark a day on the calendar or set reminders for the same. This is really convenient.
4. Time saving
Cleaning contact lenses takes time, especially when done on a daily basis. A lot of time can be saved by using dailies as there is no need for cleaning. Once you have used your contacts for the day, all you have to do is dispose of them and use a new and fresh pair the following morning.
As dailies are becoming quite popular, there are a number of brands available today. Which are the top picks to consider? Here are a few:
Dailies Total1 are daily contact lenses produced by Alcon Laboratories. These lenses are water gradient contact lenses, the first of their kind globally. These lenses feature almost 100% water at the very outer surface, providing a nice cushion of moisture. This provides exceptional comfort.
The lenses are also highly breathable, allowing for easy passage of oxygen. This ensures your eyes maintain a white healthy look. These lenses provide comfort throughout the day with their smooth gliding surface.
2. Dailies AquaComfort Plus
This is another product from Alcon Laboratories. These daily contact lenses feature the latest lens technology to ensure that the user enjoys refreshing comfort with every blink. This is made possible by blink-activated moisture that ensures all-day comfort. These lenses also provide crisp, clear vision with no cleaning required.
These contact lenses by J and J offer correction for both nearsightedness and farsightedness. These lenses are designed to keep moisture in and provide ultimate comfort. This is further assisted by LACREON technology, which comes with an embedded wetting agent, that provides a long-lasting cushion of moisture.
In addition to comfort, Acuvue Moist contact lenses provide UV protection. This UV protection is one of the best among contact lenses.
Proclear dailies are designed for comfort and can be used to correct nearsighted and farsighted vision. They feature PC technology that helps the lenses stay 96% hydrated even after 12 hours of use. This provides resistance against dryness.
These lenses also prevent eye redness by maintaining a proper flow of oxygen. This keeps your eyes clear and white.
Before buying Daily Contact Lenses speak to one of our optometrists to ensure they are available for your particular prescription and that you get properly fitted with them before dispensing. You can do this by booking an appointment with one of our doctors. At your contact lens exam appointment it will be determined if dailies are the best replacement therapy for you. Dailies come in different designs and colors. The different designs can be used to correct various conditions such as astigmatism (toric daily lenses) and presbyopia (multifocal designs).
