Disposable Contact Lenses in General
Advantages: Easy to use, comfortable, easy to clean,
I have had short sightedness since I was a young child, and I do not remember a time when I didn't wear glasses and I was always insecure about them. I did not like having to wear them, but I literally had no choice in the matter and I wore my glasses for years. I felt that they were holding me back from things, and playing sports was not always the easiest thing as the glasses would never hold still. I broke and lost more pairs of glasses through my childhood then I am sure my mother would have liked, and as many of you will know, it is just a hassle wearing glasses sometimes.
When I 13, I finally asked my optician for lenses and I was actually surprised when they agreed and let me have a trial pair. I was initally worried about the lenses, as I had never tried anything like them, but after an eye test and eye health check, I was talked through the whole process and shown what I needed to do. The optician decided that Disposable lenses would be the best option for me, and I was given the Easy Vision, Aspheric Monthly Dispoable Lenses, which I would wear daily for a month and then change the pair of lenses for a fresh new pair.
My main worry was that it would hurt to put the lenses into my eyes, but once I got them in, they were perfectly fine. I could not feel them and there was no irritation to my eyes at all. I asked why I was given disposables, and I was told that this was because it is healthier for the eyes, easier on the cleaning and they are more comfortable to wear.
I quickly got used to having to take my lenses out at night, and the cleaning process is simple and quick, with no hassle. I found it easy to put them in and take them out everyday, and it soon became second nature. I had a little trouble remembering when to change the pair of lenses over at the end of each month, but this problem was soon overcome and when it comes to change them, I just pop the lenses I have been wearing down the sink, and the next morning I open a new pair and the month begins again.
I do not think I have a bad word to say about disposable lenses. They have made my life so much easier, in many different ways. I do not have to worry about my glasses during sports or whilst I am in the gym, I never get rain in my contact lenses, and my lenses have never misted up when I come into a warm house from the cold outdoors. I can literally go all day and not remember that I wear contact lenses. They are so comfortable and cause no irritation to my eyes. The only things you need to do with them is clean and store them at night, and change them each month. Simple and easy!
I really have been able to do so much more since I started wearing lenses, and anyone else that wears glasses or contacts will know what I mean. Even the simple things like being able to see the shampoo bottle when I am in the shower make such a difference in my life.
If you wear glasses and have not tried disposable contact lenses, I can not recommend them enough to you. I only pay £10 a month for mine from Specsavers, which includes all lotions and cases, all delivered to my door. It is a small price to pay for a life changing item, and it is amazing how something so small can make such a big difference. Get to your local opticians and give them a try, see just how different life can be. I give Disposable Contact Lenses a 5 out of 5 stars.
Summary: A life changing thing!
