Dailies vs Monthlies

Ever wondered which contact lenses are better? Dailies or Monthlies?

When it comes to eyes and eyesight, we understand that cutting corners isn’t an option. You’ll want a contact lens that you can be sure does its job, won’t get in the way of your day-to-day and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. With so many specific choices on the market, such as extended-wear, weekly and monthly contact lenses and daily disposables, it can be a bit baffling to work out which lenses are the ones you should be after.

That’s why Feel Good have decided to compare the two most popular types of contact lenses, daily disposables and monthly wear contact lenses. We’ll be taking a look at the benefits of each, helping you find the lenses that suit your exact needs and lifestyle.



Dailies vs. Monthlies


Performance

Top brands typically offer daily and monthly editions of their contact lenses, meaning you can find quality contacts no matter which wearing option you’re looking for. In addition, you’ll be able to find toric and multifocal versions of both daily disposable and monthly wear contact lenses. When choosing from our fantastic selection of contact lenses, you can rely on premium choices offering exceptional visual correction, regardless of wearing schedule.



Convenience

Dailies pretty much have this category wrapped up. As you can choose which days you want to wear your lenses, none of them will go to waste. You can just add a pair fresh in the morning and enjoy a full day of wear. There’s also no need for cleaning and storing them in solution each night as you can just throw them away before getting into bed.



Hygiene

As you wear a new pair each day, dailies represent a more hygienic option for your contact lens needs. However, it’s always best to take a spare pair of daily lenses with you just in case any protein builds up on the lens throughout the day. On the other hand, monthlies can be just as hygienic, providing you follow the cleaning and storing routine advised by your optician and the lens packaging. This way you can get rid of any bacteria that’s found its way onto the lens and you can maintain its resistance to these nasty irritants.

Price

Although you’ll have to buy contact lens solution to look after your lenses, monthlies typically prove to be slightly better value than dailies as you’re simply paying for fewer lenses.



Comfort

As with some of the other factors, comfort depends entirely on the wearer. While monthlies are typically said to be more comfortable due to their superior moisture retention, an ideal feature for lens wearers that suffer from dry eyes, there are a wide number of daily disposable lenses designed with exceptional comfort in mind.


With all that in mind, it’s pretty difficult to pick a winner between dailies and monthlies. There are benefits to both, while one major variable is the eyes the lenses are intended for. Each pair of eyes is unique, meaning that your visual requirements are entirely specific to you. That’s why it’s always best to speak to your optician to find out which lenses, and which wearing schedule, will work best for your eyes and your lifestyle.
