What are the benefits of reusable contact lenses?

As a modern-day contact lens wearer, you’re spoilt for choice. There are contact lenses that can be worn and disposed of daily, weekly, or monthly. In this fast-paced, throwaway culture, many contact lens wearers are instead choosing reusable and extended wear contact lenses to suit their needs.

In the EYESONLINE store we sell contact lenses, such as Air Optix Aqua by Alcon, which can be reused for up to 4 weeks. They also have a protective moisture layer that helps to defend against deposits and infection throughout use.

So why do people choose reusable contact lenses? Well, depending on your needs and lifestyle, they can offer a number of benefits.

Benefits of reusable contact lenses

Extended use contact lenses

Reusable contact lenses offer quite a few benefits. Some kinds (known as ‘extended wear’ contacts) can even be left in overnight. Extended wear contact lenses are especially suited to people who have:

  • highly active and unpredictable lifestyles—if you’re not always able to find the time to clean your lenses due to career or lifestyle
  • binocular vision abnormalities—such as amblyopia
  • very bad vision—it can be useful to be able to see if you wake in the middle of the night.

Save money

If you’re looking to save money and are good with daily routines, reusable contact lenses are your best bet. They’re generally cheaper than using daily disposable contact lenses, even when factoring in the added cost of buying lens cleaning solution and a case.

Correction of certain vision problems

Certain vision problems can only be corrected by the reusable kind of contact lenses, making them the most versatile lens. Speak to your optometrist about how to best treat your vision issues.

Comfortable and easy to look after

Reusable contact lenses are known to be comfortable for eyes, and they’re also easy to look after. They require a simple daily routine of cleaning and storing that people find easy to incorporate into their existing schedule.
