Before we figure out the best contacts to suit your needs, however, let’s take a closer look at why disposable lenses are an incredible choice.
How Do Disposable Contact Lenses Work?
Disposable contact lenses can be worn, continuously, for short periods. Most lenses can even be worn for weeks before they need to be tossed out. These are called daily contact lenses. Meanwhile, other lenses are crafted to be disposed of daily—and these are called daily disposable contact lenses.
Contact lenses match your eye prescription, worn in “contact” with your eye. Designed to correct refractive light misalignment as it enters your eye, the contact lens is probably the most consistent visual correction tool today.
They’re much more than simple corrective lenses, too. While they function as effectively as regular glasses, they move naturally with you. They won’t get scraped, bent or lost—and they’re practically unnoticeable when worn.
Finding the Perfect Lens
There are different types of contact lenses, and each is specifically designed to serve a different purpose. They differ in “modality,” or how often they’re changed. They also account for different visual impairments, like nearsightedness and astigmatism.
Disposable contact lenses are crafted with different strength levels. These measurements refer to the overall shape of the contact lens, as different shapes refract light differently. Your disposable contact lenses will, of course, also account for the natural shape of your eyes.
There are a lot of great options, out there—and each option can be further customized to fit your optical needs perfectly. To maximize your vision, assure total comfort and achieve long-lasting visual support, you’ll need the help of a professional.
