Types of Contact Lenses
Several types of contact lenses are available today. Two of the most popular are daily use contact lenses and bifocal contact lenses.
Daily use contact lenses
Daily use contact lenses, also known as daily disposable contact lenses, are for single day use only. That means you wear them once and throw them away.
Every time you handle a contact lens, you increase the risk of contaminating the lens with bacteria, dirt and other substances. Because you handle a daily use contact lens once before inserting it into your eye, they can be healthier for your eyes.
Daily use contact lenses are also convenient, as you never have to waste time cleaning them or buying cleansing solutions. In addition, the cost of daily use contact lenses has come down over the past few years, making them more affordable than ever.
Bifocal contact lenses
Bifocal contact lenses provide two fields of vision correction to help you see things clearly far away and up close.
Technology has improved the overall quality of bifocal contact lenses, which means these lenses can help you see clearly at any distance.
Today, bifocal contact lenses are the first choice of patients over the age of 40.
