Advantages of Daily Lenses vs Bi-weekly lenses

This week we're talking about the advantages of daily lenses vs bi-weekly and monthly lenses.

Daily lenses

They are easy to adapt to and being soft they are very comfortable. The other benefit to daily disposable contact lenses is that disinfecting or soaking is not necessary as they are sterile when they are delivered straight from the package and will not be re-used. They are available in tints and are great for active lifestyles and sports as they are more difficult to dislodge than rigid or 'hard' contact lenses. Daily disposable contact lenses are also a great option for you if you plan on wearing contacts for certain activities or only on weekends. It can be hard to remember when to replace a 2 week or monthly lens especially if your only wearing them part time.


These lenses are worn for one day only and thrown away at the end of the day. 

The key advantages of these contact lenses include the following: 

·     Good comfort due to being very thin and having high water content. Once on the eye they are often instantly comfortable, making them easy to get used to.

·     Convenient because they do not require any cleaning. is makes them great for busy people or those with concerns about maintaining regular care of their contact lenses.


They may help with eye allergies - With less time for deposits to build up, daily contacts give allergies less of a chance to flare. Also, a fresh, smooth lens surface every day is gentler on irritated eyes.


·     The idea of having a fresh lens in the eye daily is something that attracts many to daily disposable lenses.  

The disadvantages of reusable contact lenses include the following:

·     Require regular cleaning and care.

·     You have to make them last longer. 


·     They may also be a little less comfortable initially because they are thicker than daily disposables (for reusable durability)
