Contact lenses

Contact lenses for your day to day

Many people prefer to wear contact lenses in their day to day because they feel more comfortable, depending on the circumstances, than with prescription glasses.

However, they are two products that can be perfectly combined: you can use prescription glasses on certain occasions and contact lenses on others.

Contact lenses are very thin and curved lenses that are placed on the surface of the eye and whose function is to improve the vision of the person wearing them.

The lens itself is transparent, so wearing contact lenses is virtually imperceptible to other people.

What types of lenses are there on the market?

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 daily 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 vision 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 want to change the color of your eyes, you can also use colored lenses.


Recommendations for the maintenance of your contact lenses

One of the most important parts of using contact lenses is their cleaning and maintenance so that they remain in perfect condition. It is essential to follow the recommendations of our experts on the margins of use of the lenses to guarantee greater durability of the product.

Daily contact lenses are for single-use and only have to be thrown away at the end of the day, however, the more durable lens models need cleaning solutions for the proper care of our eyes.
