Let’s face it, contact lenses are just a big time waste of our day. You are not quite sure whether you’re cleaning them right, but you toss them in their container and hope for the best. Then, two or three weeks, when your eyes start hurting and turn red, you realize that it’s time for a new pair. Even though contacts need to be replaced every 2 weeks or monthly, depending on the brand, it’s a burden that most of us don’t need to face. In fact, you may not even realize it, but poor maintenance of your contact lenses are damaging your eyesight because of the buildup of harmful bacteria each day.
Unless you keep them cleaned, you are risking serious eye infections that have the potential to do severe damage. It’s really not worth it.
Fortunately, there is a great alternative to contact lenses – they’re called daily disposable contact lenses,. Daily disposables allow you to see picture perfect every day as normal. However, daily disposables mean one pair a day, where you simply throw them away before going to sleep. Then, the next day you put a brand new pair on that’s fresh and clean, certainly without bacteria. Your eye doctor can recommend what types of daily disposables are best suited for you, whether you need bifocals or traditional lenses. They even have colored lenses.
Daily disposables are popular because they are affordable, easy to use, and extremely safe for your eyes. They are great for young adults who want to start wearing contact lenses for the first time, and aren’t ready to follow a replacement schedule. For adults, we also know it’s hard to replace our lenses. How often do we wonder if this is the second week or third week. After wearing the same old pair day after day and risking your vision, consider wearing daily disposables and ensure a long lasting, optimal eye health.
