A clean, fresh pair of lenses every day that offers good visual clarity all day long. No need to clean, sterilize or store lenses overnight or to invest in lens solutions. At the end of the day, the contact lens (CL) customer can remove his lenses and dispose of them, thus reducing risk for lens contamination and eye infection.
Even CL customers with astigmatism can use daily disposable contact lenses. The price of lenses can vary depending on volume purchased and on the type of prescription.
Contact lenses and eyeglasses are prescribed in terms of two powers or parameters: a spherical and a cylinder power. The sphere prescription is written with a + sign for farsighted people and a - sign for those who are nearsighted; the cylinder power which indicates the amount of correction needed for astigmatism is always negative. In both cases, the unit of measurement is the diopter (D).
Daily disposable contacts are a perfect choice for customers who use lenses sporadically, for instance, those who combine lens wear with spectacle use. This type of lens is also convenient for people who play sports or travel often as well as those who have a busy social life.
Several lens manufacturers have successfully incorporated lubricants in daily lenses that are squeezed out of the lens each time a lens wearer blinks, resulting in greater comfort and less irritation related to dry eyes.
