- What are daily contacts?
Daily contact lenses are disposable, single-use contacts that you throw away after a day’s use. They are designed so that you start with a fresh pair every day.
Daily disposable contact lenses are single-use lenses that are removed and discarded at the end of each day, and a fresh pair of lenses is applied to the eyes the next morning. Daily contact lenses are gaining in popularity among practitioners and consumers for their health and convenience benefits.
Don't confuse "daily wear" with "daily disposable." A daily wear lens is one that must be removed before sleeping because it's not FDA approved for extended (overnight) wear. Such a lens might be replaced daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly, depending upon the brand. In short, wearing schedule and replacement schedule are two different things.
In the world of contact lenses, "disposable" doesn't always mean single-use. Daily wear lenses that are thrown out every two weeks are sometimes called disposable. "Daily disposable" is the specific term for lenses that are removed and discarded daily.

- How are daily contacts different from other contacts?
How often you dispose daily of disposable contacts is what makes daily contacts unique. Unlike other contacts, you start each day with a fresh pair of 1-Days. Although bi-weekly and monthly contacts may come in a disposable form, only daily disposable contacts are thrown away after a day’s use.
- Why Throw Out Lenses At All?
The more frequently you replace your lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes can be.
Protein, calcium, lipids and other substances found naturally in your tears can build up on your lenses. These deposits make your contacts less comfortable than when they were new, and can also make your eyes more prone to infection.
Of course, lenses can be cleaned, but cleaning is not 100 percent effective. Some deposits will remain and continue to accumulate over time.
Some of today's daily contact lenses are made of the same materials as traditional lenses; other disposables are made from new materials and designs developed especially for disposable.

- How Much Do Daily Contact Lenses Cost?
Daily disposable lenses are often more affordable than many people expect. It's not unusual to spend more on a daily visit to Starbucks than on daily disposable contacts. And while you might enjoy your coffee for half an hour, a fresh pair of lenses will provide comfort and good vision all day long.
Of course, using 730 daily contact lenses per year will generally cost more than, for example, using 24 monthly-replacement lenses per year. But cost can vary widely, depending on the brand and the lens material. Daily disposable contact lenses made from silicone hydrogel materials are often positioned by lens manufacturers as "premium" daily disposables with the greatest benefit and the highest cost.
