Contact lenses for your day to day

Many people prefer to wear contact lenses in their day to day, since they are more comfortable depending on the circumstances than prescription glasses. However, they are two completely complementary products, since you can continue to wear your glasses while combining them with contact lenses on other occasions for your greater comfort.

A contact lens, or also called contact lenses, are very thin and curved lenses that are placed on the surface of the eye to improve the vision of the person who uses them. The lens itself is transparent, so the use of contact lenses is practically imperceptible to others.

It is a reality that in recent years the most used type of contact lenses are soft contact lenses, but there are other types.

Rigid contact lenses

They are more rigid and durable lenses. These lenses are used to solve refractive vision problems, and although their duration is longer than that of soft lenses, they can be less comfortable than these.

Soft contact lenses

Currently, the vast majority of people use soft contact lenses, due to their comfort and adaptability to the eye.

Within the type of soft lenses we find different options.

Daily contact lenses:

They are 1-use contact lenses, we put them on in the morning when we wake up and discard them at night before going to sleep. They are recommended for those who do not wear contact lenses on a daily basis and do on special occasions.

Monthly contact lenses:

They are lenses for daily use but with greater durability. They can be put on in the morning and removed before going to sleep. Its use lasts for 1 month, although there are also contact lenses that are changed every 15 days.

Colored contact lenses:

The same lens that we use for visual correction can also be colored lenses. In addition to the correction factor, we apply color to the lens to modify the natural color of the iris.

Decorative contact lenses:

If you do not have a vision problem to correct but you want to change the color of your eyes, you can also use colored lenses.

Recommendations for the maintenance of your contact lenses
