Types Of Lens Available
Daily disposable contact lenses are single-use lenses that are removed and discarded at the end of each day, and a fresh pair of lenses is applied to the eyes the next morning. They are suitable for both full time and occasional lens wearers. One of the benefits of daily disposable contact lenses is that by only using them for one day, your eyes are less likely to develop and complications. Because of the short time they spend in your eye, the material is more breathable and less likely to feel dry in your eye
This type of contact lens is best suited to full time wearers. They are reusable – up to 2 weeks or a month- and require greater care than a daily disposable lens. They are less expensive and are available in a greater prescription range and so are more suitable for higher or unusual prescriptions. They are designed for comfort and the breathable material helps prevent any complications. A strict routine should be adhered to, in terms of their cleanliness and maintenance
