Daily disposable contact lenses have advantages other types of contact lenses don’t, but first lets look at the overall reasons you may want to consider wearing contact lenses.

Advantages Of Contact Lenses

  • If the edges of your glasses tend to obstruct your vision and get in your way, contact lenses allow you to have a natural field of view.

  • Glasses can be a pain in different weather conditions, from fogging up to getting splattered with rain. Contact lense wearers do not suffer from these annoyances.

  • You can wear contact lenses during most activities without feeling like your vision is stopping you from doing your favorite things.

  • For many, contact lenses help with vision better than regular glasses do.

  • If you suffer from migraines or sinus issues, having heavy frames sit on your nose can aggravate your issues. Contact lenses sit in your eye weightlessly.

  • Contact lenses allow you to show your eyes off.

From the list above you can see that contact lenses are a better option for many people. If your prescription allows you to wear daily soft contact lenses, you may find that these types of contacts bring even more advantages over both glasses and other contact choices.

Daily Disposable Soft Lenses

Daily disposable contacts are made up of a flexible plastic that is soft and allows oxygen to pass through to the eyes. These types of contact lenses do not take long to get used to, letting the wearer apply them to their eyes easily and without a long adjustment period.

Quite often these disposable soft lenses are much more comfortable than both glasses and other contact lens options. When it is time for them to be removed from the eye, this can be done quickly and easily. There is no need to disinfect and spend extra time caring for daily disposable contacts. Just as the name describes, these lenses are made for daily use to be disposed of at the end of the day.

Those that have the right prescription, including bifocal, quite often find that the ease of use with daily disposable lenses makes wearing contact lenses enjoyable.
