Disposable contact lenses are the healthiest lenses you can wear. And the more frequently you throw them out, the healthier they are for your eyes.
The reasons disposable lenses are healthier:
There are three kinds of disposable contacts:
Daily disposable contact lenses
As mentioned earlier, the more often you change a contact lens, the healthier your eyes will be. When you discard them every day, you are giving your eyes the healthiest lenses you can. These contacts are the best of the best.
Daily disposables are great for:
Two week replacement
If you have tried monthly replacement contact lenses, but find that after a couple of weeks, your eyes are getting dry and scratchy more frequently, more uncomfortable, and by the end of the day you just want those things out of your eyes, you may want to try biweekly disposable contacts. While not as thin as dailies, they are thinner than monthly replacement lenses, and possibly only a little more expensive.
Many people choose monthly replacement contact lenses because they are healthier than traditional daily wear lenses, they are reasonably priced, and it's easy to remember when to replace them. You still have the convenience of a disposable lens, but they are sturdier and easier to handle than a two week lens.
