Benefits of daily disposable contact lenses

Book Appointment

Daily disposable contact lenses are single-use contacts that are discarded at the end of the day.  The next day, a new pair of lenses are worn.  Daily disposable contact lenses should not be confused with other disposable  contact lenses which can be worn bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly depending on the brand.  

Why throw away your contact lenses?

Frequent replacement of contact lenses is healthier for the eye and leads to better overall comfort.  Protein and other substances found in your tears can build up on the lenses leading to uncomfortable contact lenses and increased risk for infection.  Non-daily disposable contact lenses are usually stored in a case and re-worn for a given time period.  Although cleaning is done, some deposits on the lenses still remain over time.
