Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Contacts

Choosing the right contact lenses for you is an important decision that you should take time to research. Here is some helpful information when you investigate the best option for you. 

There are three main types of contacts — daily disposables, weekly disposables, and monthly disposables. 

Each type of contact is designed to be used for a specific time. For example, daily disposables are meant to be worn during the day (or single wear) and then discarded before you go to sleep. Weekly disposables can be worn for a week or two, but they require a fresh cleaning solution and storage in a case each night. 

Monthly disposable lenses are similar to weekly disposables but can be reused for longer periods of time. They also require storage in a protective case with fresh cleaning solution each night. 

Each type of contact comes with advantages or obstacles that depend on you. If you don’t plan on wearing contacts every day, or if you do not have the time and energy to properly clean them, daily disposables are a great option. Daily lenses are also optimal if you travel often since you have less to bring with you. 

But if you are looking to save on cost, contacts that last longer are less expensive. 

The choice of which type of contacts depends on you and your lifestyle. Pycraft Family Eye Care is your Wooster family eye care provider that can help you decide which type of contact lenses are right for you.
