What to choose between daily or monthly lenses?


When you have vision problems, you will then inevitably have a number of decisions to make. First, there is the fundamental question of whether you prefer to wear glasses, contact lenses, or want a more drastic solution: surgery.


Once you have decided on lenses, you will find that there is a wide range of different lens categories. There are daily, bi-monthly and monthly.

Why choose daily lenses? 

Daily lenses are "soft" lenses.

As the name suggests, daily lenses mean that they have to be replaced daily. The price is attractive for occasional lens wearers.

There are many advantages to changing lenses every day. It doesn't matter if a lens is lost or replaced prematurely and no lens care is required. But the biggest advantage is that these lenses are the most hygienic. Each new pair of lenses is free of germs and deposits that form during prolonged wear. Daily lenses are therefore particularly suitable for sensitive eyes.

Occasional wearers also appreciate this type of lens when they have to exchange their glasses with lenses for use during sports use.


What about monthly and bi-monthly lenses? 

In any case, it is important to note that for some corrections, it is not possible to have daily lenses

In this case, 14-day or monthly lenses are often the solution. They are reasonably priced and made of high quality, oxygen permeable materials. They are therefore suitable for all those who cannot or do not want to wear daily lenses. It is also very important to clean these lenses properly.

There are several types of contact lenses available today: daily lenses and monthly lenses. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the most suitable type for you will depend on your lifestyle and personal preferences. Daily disposables are generally considered to be more hygienic because they are worn for a short time and then disposed of. Monthly lenses, on the other hand, are generally considered to be more economical because they can be worn for many weeks before they need to be replaced. 

When choosing contact lenses, it is important to consult an optician to make sure you choose the right type of lens for your situation. Your optician can also advise you on how to care for and maintain your lenses so that you can wear them safely and healthily.
