Daily disposable lenses are a good option for younger individuals, especially those who are new to contacts. Younger wearers have a tendency to damage or lose their contact lenses. With dailies, they can easily replace torn or lost lenses.
Daily disposable contact lenses are to be worn for one day only. The process of cleaning these lenses is generally ineffective and actually breaks down the lens itself increasing the risk of the lens falling apart while it is on the eye.
Weekly and monthly contacts help you save more money. Theyre also friendlier to the environment and are more durable for active lifestyles. But the benefits of one a day contacts often trump those of weekly or monthly contacts. After all, theyre far more convenient and dont need daily cleaning.
Whether wearing one contact lens for a day is harmful to your eyes depends on your prescription. If you require corrective vision in a single eye, its not uncommon to wear only one lens. However, if you need two contacts but are wearing one contact lens temporarily, you may experience symptoms in the unprotected eye.
