Contact lenses are a convenient way of dealing with imperfect vision. You don't have to worry about glasses sliding down your nose, falling off your face or getting broken. Contact lenses also allow you to show off your natural beauty. But sometimes even contact lenses can be inconvenient and unsanitary. With traditional lenses that are meant to be worn for six months or longer, there is a chance of protein and lipid build up on the lens that can increase the likelihood of eye infection. Because of this, a rigid cleaning schedule is needed. But disposable contact lenses make the convenience of contact lenses even more convenient. After a short duration - a month, a week, and with some disposables&even a day - you can get rid of the contact, as well as the buildup, and put on a fresh and clean, sanitary contact. If you're thinking about disposable contact lenses, talk with your optometrist. He or she can help you decide whether or not disposable contact lenses will work for you.
The Convenience of Disposable Lenses
Depending on what type of disposable lenses you choose to wear, the convenience can vary. If you wear longer lasting disposables, you'll still need to maintain the lenses by cleaning them and storing them properly. However, to make things super convenient, there are daily disposable contact lenses available that eliminate all the hassle that comes with contact lenses. Simply put them on in the morning, and then you can wear them all day long, and throw them away at night. When the next morning comes, you can open up a clean new pair to wear for the day. Disposable contact lenses are not right for all people. They don't offer the same clarity of vision as rigid gas permeable lenses and don't correct all vision problems. Talk with your doctor to see if disposable contact will work for you. Walgreens is sure to have what you need to make wearing contacts easy on your eyes.
