Are Daily Contact Lenses Right for You?
You love the convenience of contact lenses, but it can be a pain to take them out, clean them, and disinfect them at the end of each day. Some people find that standard contact lenses get cloudy over time or lose their shape toward the end of the wear period.
Daily contact lenses can be a good fit for people who prefer a fresh start with their contacts each morning. You simply throw away your used contact lenses at the end of the day.
People may also prefer daily contacts for a variety of vision health reasons. A fresh pair of contacts each day may alleviate some of your eye allergy symptoms if you suffer from seasonal allergies. It may also be more comfortable to use a new pair of contacts each day instead of rehydrating and wearing old pairs if you have dry eye.
Reach out to your eye doctor to learn more about daily contacts if you are not sure about whether or not they are the right fit for you.
Your Daily Contact Lens Exam
Your daily contact lens eye exam will include your optometrist measuring your eye if it is your first time getting contact lenses. This does not hurt, and nothing touches the surface of your eye.
The rest of your contact lens eye exam will be similar to a standard eye exam. Your eye doctor may provide you with some trial contact lenses to use until your new prescription is filled.
Do not hesitate to ask your eye doctor any questions about how to care for your eyes while using contacts. Reach out to your eye doctor if you notice any discomfort or difficulty wearing your contact lenses after your appointment.
