Take a Look at Daily Disposables

For years now, our country has been one that loves 2-week contact lenses.  While other countries overseas are embracing daily disposable contact lenses, it is still a lens modality that has struggled to catch on here with any real success.  For the life of me, I can’t figure out why.  The only guess I have is that we aren’t as educated about this type of contact lens.  With this, I urge you to take a look at Daily Disposables (CooperVisions’s ProClear 1 day & ...

For years now, our country has been one that loves 2-week contact lenses.  While other countries overseas are embracing daily disposable contact lenses, it is still a lens modality that has struggled to catch on here with any real success.  For the life of me, I can’t figure out why.  The only guess I have is that we aren’t as educated about this type of contact lens.  With this, I urge you to take a look at Daily Disposables (CooperVisions’s ProClear 1 day & ClearSight 1 day as well as Ciba Vision’s Focus Dailies) as on option for premium contact lenses.

The reasons are two-fold: better eye health and better comfort.  The reasons it is better for eye health are simple:

–  Since you have to change your lens on a daily basis, this promotes good ocular health.  Daily Disposables have the highest compliance rate of any modality at 94%.
–  Daily Replacement means less deposit build up, reducing problems associated with this, such as GPC
–  Daily disposables have the lowest infection rate since you are putting in a new, fresh lens every day

The reasons for better comfort are obvious as well.  Putting in a new lens every day means you are getting a fresh lens with no deposit build-up, allowing for a more comfortable wearing experience.

If you haven’t tried daily disposable contact lenses, please take some time when you see your Indianapolis Optometrist or Indiana Eye Doctor to discuss this modality and the benefits it can provide.
