Monthly contact lenses Must Be Used As Directed By an Optometrist
Monthly disposable contact lenses are designed to be replaced every month, and must be in accordance with the optometrist’s advice. These lenses are made available by some of the most popular contact lens companies, such as the Ciba Vision and Bausch & Lomb. Due to its popularity, there are plenty of them that you can buy in the market now.
Made of Silicon Hydrogel
Monthly contact lenses were first introduced in the UK during the 1980s, and have since undergone significant development in order to enhance the level of comfort of the users. One of the significant developments of the monthly disposable contacts was the use of a material called the silicon hydrogel. This material allows the production of more oxygen to the eye, as compared with a regular type of contact lens.
Follow Proper Precaution
When using the monthly contact lenses, you need to make sure that you follow proper precaution and seek out the advice of your optometrist. They must be cleaned and maintained well to avoid any risk of tearing the lens or allowing any sediment to build-up on the surface of the lens that could lead to discomfort and other types of eye infection.
