Disposable contact lenses
Contact lenses for monthly use
The most commonly worn lenses are those for monthly use. They usually come in packs of six to last you six months. These lenses need to be cleaned daily using a special cleaning solution for contact lenses, and should be kept in a special container when you are not wearing them.
Contact lenses for daily use
More and more contact lens wearers are using one-day contact lenses. The advantage is that you simply take new contact lenses from the package each day, and there is no need to clean the lenses you wore the previous day; you simply throw them away. Contact lenses for daily use usually come in packs of 30 or 90.
Toric and multifocal contact lenses
Even if you have astigmatism or if you need correction for both distance vision and near vision, you may still be able to wear contact lenses. Many brands offer ‘toric’ versions (for astigmatism) and multifocal versions of their popular types of contact lenses.
