No More Cleaning

Daily disposable contacts are perfect for patients who don’t like to clean their lenses.  You simply throw them away at the end of the day and put on a fresh pair in the morning.

“I only wear my contacts on the weekends.”

Daily disposable contact lenses are ideal for patients who seldom wear their contacts, whether it be only on the weekends or when participating in a sporting activity.  Rather than having them sit in a contact lens case for days at a time, daily disposable contact lenses offer the benefit of throwing them away after every use.

Don’t They Cost More?

Many patients, while understanding the advantages of daily disposable lenses, are concerned about the higher cost of these contacts.  In reality, when factoring in the cost of contact lens solutions, re-wetting drops, and contact lens cases, the price difference is fairly minimal.
