When deciding which types of contact lenses are right for you, it's important to weigh all of the options. In the old days, there was really only one kind of hard contact lens, and you were stuck with that or glasses. Those were your options. Now there are so many different kinds of contact lenses, made up of so many different types of materials, it's easy to choose which ones are right for you when you weigh the options.
Daily contact lenses are the newest on the market and have become increasingly popular over the last few years. As a matter of fact, Fort Collins Family Eye Care is one of the biggest prescribers of daily contact lenses because their patients love them so much. 78% of their patients prefer daily lenses over monthly. One of the biggest draws to daily contacts is that they are extremely clean. There is a very limited chance of build-up because you start with a fresh new pair of contacts each day. You don't need to stock up on bottles and bottles of solutions or cleaners, because you simply throw away your contacts at the end of each wearing session.
Daily contact lenses are great for occasional wearers or younger contact lens patients who are learning proper hygienic care of contact lenses. They are extremely easy to travel with and very convenient. You can even throw a pair in your purse or workout bag and have contacts ready to go when you need to go eyewear-free. No need to buy contact lens solution, cases, or spend time cleaning the lenses - a total savings of almost $200 per year.
At the end of the day, your contact lens choice should be the one where comfort and convenience meet your lifestyle.
