Disposable Contacts

Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days and generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than rigid gas permeable lenses. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you. 

Below, our Calgary trusted eye care professionals at Blink Eyewear briefly explain some of the major types of disposable contact lenses on the market today.

Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses

Monthly and bi-weekly disposable contact lenses require more upkeep than daily disposables, requiring daily cleaning and storage in proper contact lens solution. However, they are more economical since you don't have to purchase them as often as dailies and less material goes into making them. Monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses also offer the possibility of extended wear, allowing up to 30 days of continuous day and night contact lens wear without having to take them out.

Daily Disposables

Daily disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative because, although they are more expensive than monthly and bi-weekly contacts, they offer the same crystal clear vision without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. Daily disposable contact lens wearers simply throw away each day's pair of contacts before bed and open a new pair the next day to enjoy the benefits and comfort of clean, clear, crisp contact lenses.

Some of the issues normally associated with bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses like dangerous calcium or hairspray deposits are no longer an issue. Today, the chances of developing contact lens-related eye infections (normally associated with monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses) are very low if the proper care is taken.

Many disposable contact lenses also offer tints and colours that allow you to either accent your natural eye colour or change your eye colour altogether. For more information, speak with our West Springs, Creekside or Crowfoot Calgary eye doctor today.
