Safer for Your Eyes
Daily contact lenses don’t require any additional care like disinfection or storage when not in use. Protein, calcium, lipids, and other substances can build up on your lens, making your contacts less comfortable and more prone to infection. There is no accumulation of these elements when using daily contact lenses.

You don’t need to follow detailed care instructions with daily disposable lenses because there’s no need to disinfect and store daily contacts. Wearing daily lenses places you at a lower risk of eye infections than reusable contacts.
While reusable contact lenses have a variety of material options, daily lenses don’t have this luxury. Daily disposables are always soft contact lenses and are typically thinner than reusable options.
How Do You Know Which Lenses Are Best?
Many factors can influence which type of contact lenses are best for your needs. You may have a personal preference for your contacts, or your eye health may affect your ability to wear a specific type of contacts. Your optometrist can help identify your overall eye health during a comprehensive eye exam before recommending the most appropriate lenses for you.
