1-Day disposable contact lenses offer patients a great alternative to conventional 2-Week or 1-Month disposable lenses. For years now research has shown that the more often you can dispose of your contact lenses, the healthier your eyes will be, the better they will feel and the better your vision will be.
The problem is that the end consumer is just not that very good at following the manufacturers guidelines. Either that or they are miss-informed by their eye care professional or confused by the things they read or see on the Internet. The end result is that not all patients dispose of their contact lenses when they should. This results in contact lens discomfort and patients looking for alternatives such as laser eye surgery.
To combat this problem, manufacturers set out to create a 1-Day disposable product so that patients no longer had to remember when to change their 2-Week or 1-Month contact lenses. As a side benefit, 1-Day contact lenses turned out to be a savings grace for allergy sufferers, patients with contact lens solution allergies, and a hygienic alternative for young kids.
Yes 1-Day contact lenses cost slightly more then 2-Week or 1-Month disposable lenses, but you will also never have to purchase contact lens solution again.
