Monthly Disposable Contact Lenses
Monthly contact lenses are a cost-effective option for contact lens wearers. There are different types of contact lenses with monthly wear times, designed to correct different visual problems. If you don't mind a regular lens cleaning routine, then a monthly lens may be more suitable for you than daily disposable contact lenses.
What are monthly contact lenses?
Monthly contact lenses can be worn daily for up to 30 consecutive days before needing to be replaced with a new set. These lenses can be worn all day and must be taken out before sleeping to be cleaned and stored, ready for the next day. You must remove them each night, clean and store them using the solutions recommended by your eyecare practitioner. They're the most common type of soft lens fitted in the IE and have many advantages. Re-usable lenses offer all the benefits of soft lenses and are more cost-effective than daily disposables for those who wear their lenses every day or almost every day. They're also available in a wide range of materials, fittings, powers, and designs. Monthlies are generally more affordable and ecological than daily disposables. Monthly contact lenses are also available in a wide range of prescriptions.
Why should I choose monthly contact lenses?
Monthly contact lenses give greater value for money than daily disposable and two weekly lenses. By using the same set of lenses for a month, not only are you saving money but you're also choosing a more environmentally friendly option than dailies.
Monthly disposable contact lenses are perfect for those who wear their lenses on a daily basis. They’re also far more practical for your visual requirements than glasses, particularly if you play sports or are out of the house a lot of the day. However, RGP lenses cannot be worn while playing ball sport unless you are wearing a protective eye wear.
What vision problems do monthly contact lenses correct?
Monthly contact lenses can be used to correct several types of visual problems. Monthly, reusable contact lenses are designed to correct hyperopia (long sightedness), myopia (short sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.
Are monthly contact lenses cheaper than daily?
Monthly contact lenses tend to be cheaper than daily disposables, this is because with dailies you dispose of the lens every day. Using a new lens every day means you will go through your lenses at a much quicker rate. If you don't mind a regular lens cleaning routine and you'd like to save money, then a monthly contact lens would be a more suitable option. We have a broad range of cheap monthly contact lenses available.
