Benefits of Daily Contact Lenses

There are various lenses for eyeglasses that you can choose from, but since they sit about 12 millimeters from your eyes, glasses tend to distort peripheral vision. With contact lenses, though, you don’t have to worry about this issue. The contacts will sit comfortably on your eye’s curvature, thus giving you a wider field of view and better focus. Besides, contacts don’t fog up or steam up during extreme weather conditions.

Are you thinking of switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses? Among all the contact lens options available today, it can get confusing which type is best for you. Here are the top reasons why you should consider opting for daily contact lenses:


Limited Exposure to Bacteria and Other Pathogens

If you’re using extended wear contact lenses, you’re likely exposing your contacts to microorganisms each time you touch them and remove them from their containers. Daily disposable contact lenses are safer as you only use them once. You immediately wear a new pair of contacts as soon as you take them out of their packs and then discard them at the end of the day. This lowers the risk of infection due to exposure to microbes, particularly those bacteria and other pathogens that come from your fingers.


More Comfortable

Just because you have properly disinfected and stored your contacts doesn’t mean that they’re always going to feel fresh in your eyes. A pair of contacts fresh out of their packs will guarantee more comfortable wear every day. It’s worth mentioning that the repeated use of the same pair of contacts may lead to sensitivity to the cleansing solution. The lens material may also break down little by little. Over time, this gives you a different and even uncomfortable feeling in your eyes.



No More Maintenance

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of choosing daily contact lenses over other types is the convenience it offers. Other contacts will require you to disinfect and store them properly without any mistake each time you’re done wearing them. Daily disposable contacts only have to be removed carefully from your eyes, and then you can throw them away. This type of contact lens is also perfect for travel. If you’re going out of town for a few days or several weeks, you’d have to bring your cleaning solution and storage case. Wearing your contacts round the clock will infect your eyes. Also, dirt will only accumulate on the material if you don’t follow the proper disinfection and storage directions.



Excellent for Active People

If you lead an active lifestyle, you likely know how contacts offer a more efficient solution. Unlike glasses, contacts won’t change position when you move your head during a workout or sports activity. Contacts also offer better vision as eyeglasses tend to restrict your peripheral vision. Glasses may also fog up during certain weather conditions or fall off when engaging in certain activities. Additionally, you’re less likely to get injured with contacts as there won’t be glasses that may break if you were to get hit in the face.
