Are disposable contact lenses safe?

New products are always being developed to further combat eye health related concerns while wearing contact lenses.

The most recent product is daily disposable lenses. Daily disposable contact lenses are superior for eye health over their weekly and monthly counterparts because you are putting in a fresh lens each day so the buildup of toxic materials from your tears, contact lens solutions, and whatever is growing in your 3-year old contact lens case (yes these need to be replaced also) doesn’t have a chance to cause an infection or irritation to your eyes.

If your eyes ever become red, painful, light-sensitive, or your vision suddenly becomes blurry while wearing your contact lenses make an appointment to be seen by our eye doctor right away.

Daily disposables are now available for many different prescriptions including, farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and even presbyopia, a decrease in the focusing ability of the eye to see things up close.
