The increase in demand for daily disposable lenses, such as 1-Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism or Dailies Total 1, is on the rise for a variety of reasons.
A Healthy Eye Care Option
Daily wear means you wear contacts only during the day and remove them each night. Daily-wear soft lenses are made of soft, flexible plastic that allows oxygen to pass through to the eyes. This helps prevent hypoxia, red eyes, blurred vision, eye infections and corneal swelling. Specifically, 1-Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism is made of a unique hydrogel material known as etafilcon. It provides 88 percent of available oxygen to the open eye. This is important because the cornea is the only external tissue in your body that must derive its oxygen supply from the atmosphere. All-around, daily disposable lenses are healthier for the eyes. This well-being factor contributes greatly to the rising demand for daily-wear soft lenses.
Comfort is another reason why daily disposable contact lenses are gaining momentum in popularity. The supple nature of these types of contacts makes them a natural and comfortable fit for wearers. Proteins, lipids, calcium and other substances found in the eyes can build up on lenses. Daily disposable contact lenses avoid the discomfort associated with these substances. And even when you clean traditional contact lenses, debris can remain and accumulate over time.
