Disposable Daily Lenses
Our eye doctors at Harrel Eyecare strive to offer the best technologies, procedures, and eye health products for our patients. We are pleased to be able to offer daily disposable lenses, which may be of interest to some of our patients who wear contacts. Learn what disposable daily lenses are, what their benefits are, and how you can obtain a prescription for these contact lenses.
About Daily Disposable Lenses
If you have been thinking of getting contact lenses, but worry about the care and maintenance that go along with contacts, daily disposable lenses may be the right choice for you. These lenses are only intended to be worn for a single day. At the end of the day, instead of storing the lenses, you can simply throw them out. In the morning, put in a new pair.
Daily disposable contact lenses are now available for most prescriptions, including for astigmatism. We at Harrel Eyecare carry these lenses and would be happy to fit you for a pair of daily disposable contacts. Before we fit you for daily wear contact lenses we will perform a contact lens exam
to make sure that these lenses truly are a good fit for you.
Benefits of Daily Disposable Lenses
When disposable lenses were first introduced, they were intended to be used for one to two weeks and then replaced. Technology has changed and now we are able to offer contact lenses that are only intended to be worn for a day. With these lenses, you do not have to spend any time on contact lens maintenance.
Some people like to wear daily lenses for a specific activity, such as sports or reading, and then throw the lenses away after the activity concludes. This offers a convenient way to wear corrective vision aids when just you need help in specific circumstances.
Studies have shown that replacing contact lenses frequently is the best way to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable. Over time, substances that are found in your eyes can actually create deposits on contact lenses that cause eye infections. While you can clean contact lenses to remove these deposits, cleaning is not 100 percent effective. By throwing away lenses and using a fresh pair, you avoid the cycle of deposits that causes infection.
The lenses we offer are high quality, yet affordable. This allows us to provide you with daily wear contact lenses at a great price. If you like the idea of wearing daily use lenses, but think that you might not be able to afford them, call us. You may be surprised at the true cost of these lenses!
