When using daily disposable lenses the beauty of them is that they require no cleaning at night, you can simply take them out, discard them and wear a brand new pair in the morning.
Daily disposable lenses are often considered the most hygienic and healthiest option for contact lens wearers, although they can be expensive. They are considered the healthiest, as the single use means there is no chance for deposits to be left, or contaminated lenses to be worn, as you will discard them after every use. They are also more convenient for those with an active and constant lifestyle that cannot be delayed with the constant care and cleaning needed to maintain long-term use lenses.
Despite all of this, there are a couple of things you can do to prevent the already minimal risk of infection. Firstly, ensure you place the lenses in prior to the application of any makeup, this way you reduce the risk of contaminating the lens with any residue left on your fingers. Secondly, ensure that you have a re-wetting solution at hand, just in case your eyes do get dry.
Of all the lens types, single use disposable do offer the lowest rate of contact lens related problems, which is very good news as any damage to the eye is both inconvenient and upsetting. The loss or impairing of sight is something that affects you in a significant way.
In conclusion, daily disposable lenses are very low maintenance, there are a couple of things you can do to decrease the potential risk of irritation or infection, but apart from that they are a convenient and healthy variety of lens. And if you are an infrequent user of lenses, you will save yourself money as you won’t be spending it on cleaning solutions.
