In recent years, daily contact lenses or daily disposables (aka dailies) have become increasingly common in the eye care field. According to most mainstream optometrists, that’s a good sign.
So, what exactly are these lenses and why are they so highly praised by Optometrists? Well, dailies are soft contacts that are intended for daily use. This means you put in a new pair of dailies every morning and throw them away just before bed.
The obvious benefit of wearing dailies is that you dramatically reduce the risk of developing serious infections. Since you wear these lenses for such a short period of time, it doesn’t give harmful compounds enough time to grow. Not only that, dailies users don’t have to worry about proteins, lipids, and other debris accumulating and clouding vision over time.
Besides the safety factor, dailies are extremely convenient and comfortable for consumers. There’s no need to spend so much on solution or contact lens cases, plus people with dry eye syndrome often experience symptom reduction once switching to daily lenses.
While dailies have a lot going for them, there are a few potential downsides that customers should take into consideration. The most significant con on most people’s minds has to do with cost. On average, dailies are significantly more expensive than multi-day lenses. However, recently the price for Daily lenses has fallen. For example Crystal Aqua Daily Lenses are now priced at about 0.45p/day, which compares very well with monthly lenses, as no additional solution or case purchases are required.
Another issue some people have is that dailies aren’t exactly eco-friendly. Because millions of people are throwing away more of these lenses every day, it’s causing a great deal of pollution in the world’s oceans. Anyone who uses dailies is encouraged to dispose of their contacts in a dedicated recycling bin to help address this global crisis.
