Disposable soft contact lenses now account for 80% of all soft contact lenses being fit. These contact lenses are extremely comfortable and healthy for your eyes. You replace your contact lenses before protein and lipids in your tears build-up on the lens surface. This provides more oxygen to your eyes without using solutions/chemicals to clean the contact lens.
Today, we have lenses that you wear one day and throw away. In addition we have weekly, monthly, and quarterly disposable lenses. Depending on your visual needs and lifestyle, the appropriate design can be found.
One-day disposable contact lenses provide the best ocular health and vision possible today. For about a dollar a day, you can have the ultimate in ocular health, vision, and convenience.
Weekly-disposable contact lenses are the most common contact lens sold today. Most people wear the lenses during the day and remove for night. The contact lenses are placed in a disinfecting solution over night. After wearing the contact lenses for two weeks the lenses are replaced. Another option is to wear the contact lens continuously for one week, and then replace the lens. This eliminates the need for disinfecting solution and provides clear vision 24 hours a day!
Monthly-disposable contact lenses need to be cleaned and disinfected but offer flexibility over traditional yearly-replaced lenses. Usually, you do not have to use weekly enzymes either. These lenses can be worn either on a daily wear or extended wear regimen.
Quarterly-replaced lenses are usually cared for the same as traditional yearly soft contact lenses. Some patients have difficulty after about three months of wearing their contact lenses due to deposits and lack of sufficient oxygen. This regimen can solve this problem and provide a new clean lens every quarter of a year.
