Which Contact Lens is better? Choosing between Daily vs. Monthly

Are you trying to decide between daily and monthly contact lenses? It's a common crossroad for many of our lens-wearing friends. In this blog, I’ll provide a quick overview of each type, so you can make the best choice for your peepers and lifestyle.

Monthly Contacts: Your Month-Long Buddies

Monthly contact lenses are like those reliable friends you see regularly. You pop them in at the start of each day, take them out each night, and clean them nightly. With good care, you can continue to use them all month long. 

Why You Might Love Them:

  • Wallet-Friendly: They can be more budget-friendly than daily disposables.

  • Eco-Friendly: Less waste since you're not tossing them out daily.

But Keep in Mind:

  • A Bit of TLC: They need a daily cleaning and a safe place to sleep (Ps - don’t forget to replace the case regularly!).

  • Play It Safe: If you're not on top of cleaning them, your eyes might not be too happy.

Daily Contacts: The Easy-Peasy Choice

Daily disposables are your quick and convenient choice. Use them for a day, and when you're done, they're out. New day, new lens!

Why They're Super:

  • Convenience: No cleaning, no fuss. Ideal for those always on the go or those who like to switch it up with specs.

  • Clean and Comfy: Fresh pair every day means less chance for eye irritation and more comfort.

  • Feel-Good Fit: Often thinner and feel like you're wearing almost nothing. If you have dry eyes, your eyes will thank you!

But Here's the Flip Side:

  • Price Tag: They may be more costly if you use them daily, however top brands offer rebate programs on year long supplies.  

  • Planet-Friendly?: More disposable, so more waste.

Picking Your Perfect Match

Think about these things when you're choosing your lens squad:

1. Your Daily Grind:

If you're always hustling and bustling, daily disposables are super convenient. If your days are more chill and you don't mind a little lens-care ritual, monthlies might be the way to go.

2. Eye Health:

Got sensitive eyes or allergies? Dailies can be kinder since you're starting fresh every day.

3. Pocket Considerations:

Monthlies can be more cost-effective, but remember, you'll need some cleaning solution to keep them happy.
