How many of you wear contact lenses? I have been wearing them since I was 13. For many years I wore extended wear lenses, but into my 30s my eyes started getting very irritated. So I went from monthly wear, to weekly wear, until I finally settled into daily disposable lenses. If you are thinking about making the switch, I’d suggest checking out daily disposable contact lenses at EZ Optical. This blog post is part of my ongoing partnership with EZ Optical. All views on the product are truly my own.

Contacts for Daily Wear
I moved my routine around a little for these pictures, I definitely do not wear makeup before putting my contacts in. Mostly because I can’t see without them! I have been wearing my glasses a lot more these days, but most of the time I wear contacts. Wearing these daily contacts really cuts down on my get ready time (which I don’t have much of to begin with).
Why Buy Daily Disposable Contacts?
Speaking from my own experience, my eyes are simply more comfortable with daily contact lenses. But after talking to Mustafa at EZ Optical, he explained a few more reasons why daily disposable contact lenses are better for you.
- Contact lenses are porous. The longer you wear a pair, the more clogged the pores get, limiting the amount of oxygen to your eye.
- Because you are throwing the contact lenses away after each use, the risk of infection diminishes greatly.
- Great for travel: instead of worrying about contacts + solutions + case, just throw a strip of contacts in our toiletry bag
Cost of Disposable Lenses
Many people think daily disposable contacts are too expensive and don’t even consider them as an option. However a little analysis will show you that they are actually pretty much the same as extended wear lenses. Most manufacturers offer rebates when you buy an annual supply of daily contacts, bringing them within almost the same cost as extended wear.
So, what do you think? Are daily disposable contact lenses for you? I’ve been wearing them for almost 10 years and I haven’t regretted it!
