Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

contact lens on fingerLet'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.

The pandemic of coronavirus (COVID 19) continues to spread endangering many of us who call Midland/Odessa home. While the number of cases in Texas is growing rapidly, so far there are few cases in our area. At Vision Health Specialties it is our goal to keep it that way.

Because eye care by necessity requires close contact between workers and patients, the Center for Disease Control along with other eye care specialty organizations recommend that during this critical period eye doctors suspend routine vision examinations. In complying with this, Vision Health Specialties will terminate routine eye care beginning Monday, March 23‎rd until Monday, April 20th. We will be open from 9:00 till 4:00 PM during this period of time with a small staff to handle urgencies such as red eyes, corneal ulcers, uveitis, abrasions, sudden increases in floaters, or flashes, and foreign bodies in the eye. Please call our office before coming in. Furthermore, those who have traveled to China, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Iran, or the state of Washington, California, New York, Louisiana and/or other affected areas, as well as those who have respiratory disease, and/or fever, will be referred to the emergency department of Midland Memorial Hospital where they are equipped to handle those at risk of coronavirus.
