Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

Great Benefits of Dailies for Kids, Teens, and Adults

Daily disposable contact lenses are rapidly rising in popularity to be many people’s favorite type of vision correction. These convenient contacts are usually very comfortable and provide crisp vision immediately after they are first inserted – with no adaptation period. At Cove Eyecare, we fit patients of all ages – young kids, teens, and adults – with daily disposables in Copperas Cove.

If you have a distant memory of hearing that daily disposables were made from cheap materials and that’s why they are “disposable,” it’s time to bury that thought. While it may have been true years ago, nowadays, dailies are constructed from high-quality, state-of-the-art materials that provide enhanced comfort and eye health. Many of our Copperas Cove patients claim that they have never experienced such comfortable contacts!

The basics of daily disposables

Contacts come in many types and with a variety of wearing schedules. Daily disposables are designed to be worn only once, for a single day. You insert them in the morning, wear them all day, remove at bedtime, and throw them in the garbage. The next day, you open a new package and insert a fresh pair of contacts. Does the convenience and ease of this sound appealing? Most adults love the simple, low maintenance of dailies. And for kids and teens, who usually have a more erratic schedule and also tend to be less vigilant with hygiene, daily disposables can be a perfect, healthy solution for vision correction.

A clear look at the benefits of dailies - at any age

To help you understand the big picture of what adults, kids, and teens can gain from daily disposables, our optometrist, Dr. Micheline Young, prepared this list:

  • No routine cleaning and disinfection before you go to sleep. That means you don’t need to buy any costly cleaning solutions, and bedtime prep each night is much shorter!  
  • Dailies leave no time for allergens, such as dust or pollen, to build upon your contacts, so symptoms of eye allergies are often alleviated
  • Protein deposits, cosmetics, and hairspray residue don’t accumulate on your lenses surface, so they are always comfortable
  • Remembering when to discard your lenses is simple. No need to mark reminders on your calendar
  • Frequent travelers love the simplicity of packing only spare pairs of contact lenses, instead of a whole kit with disinfectants and supplies  
  • Kids and teens (and busy adults) tend to neglect proper contact lens hygiene. With daily disposables, cleaning is a thing of the past
  • Daily disposable contact lenses can be healthier; studies have shown that dailies lead to less eye irritation and infections. And because the lenses are thrown out daily, the risk of corneal injury from wearing a damaged or torn lens is reduced
