Disposable Contact Lenses: The Best in Comfort and Hygiene

Disposable Lenses: Why Choose Them?

Are you a person who religiously follows the eye doctor’s instructions of rinsing, cleaning and disinfecting your contact lenses?  If the answer is no, you are better off with disposable contact lenses. Though contact lenses are a boon to modern ophthalmology, you should never ignore the fact that over the time, proteins, lipids and other substances that are present in your tear film starts building up on your contact lenses. These deposits clog the lenses which results in a decreased supply of oxygen to the cornea. The deposits on the lenses affect your vision and are detrimental for your eye health also as these deposits encourage the breeding of bacteria and other microorganisms under the warm and moist surface under the lenses causing eye-conditions like called giant papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC).

Disposable Contacts: Wear Them and Then Toss Them

Disposable contact lenses can be worn for a specified period, and then thrown away to be replaced with a fresh pair! These saves you not only a fixed cleaning and storing routine, these disposable lenses also reduces eye discomfort, eye infections and problems relating to vision to a large extent.

From single day to one month, disposable contact lenses come in so many varieties that you are sure to be spoilt for choice. However, opt for those that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Thanks to the developments in ocular science, disposable contact lenses come in extended wear range also – that is, 30 days of continuous day and night wear!
