Disposable Contacts

Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days. As an alternative to hard lenses of the past and rigid gas permeable lenses of today, they are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you. Below, our trusted eyecare professionals give you a brief explanation of some of the major types of disposable contact lenses on the market today.

Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses

Monthly and bi-weekly disposable contact lenses require more upkeep than daily disposables, requiring daily cleaning and storage in proper contact lens solution. They are, however, more economical overall, since less material goes into making them and you do not have to buy contact lenses as often. Additionally, monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses offer the possibility of extended wear, which allows up to 30 days of continuous day and night contact lens wear, without the necessity of taking them out.

Daily Disposables

Although more expensive than monthly and bi-weekly contacts, daily disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative, because they offer the same crystal clear vision, without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. Daily disposables allow contact lens wearers the ability to simply throw away each day’s pair of contacts before bed, and open a brand new pair the very next day to enjoy the benefits and comfort of clean, clear, crisp contact lenses. Dangerous calcium or hairspray deposits, normally associated with bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses, are no longer an issue, and the chances of developing contact lens related eye infections, normally associated with monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses, become almost a non-issue.

Many disposable contact lenses, of all varieties, also offer tints and colors that may accent your natural eye color or change your eye color altogether. Those with Presbyopia normally would need to have bi-weekly or monthly contacts, although new daily disposable options are also beginning to emerge. For more information, speak with your eye doctor today.

Klein Eyecare update for COVID-19 (3/20/20)

As we all navigate the unprecedented pandemic facing our country, we would like you to know that the safety of our patients and our staff are of utmost importance to us as we simultaneously continue to care for your eye care needs.  For this reason, we have implemented an extremely rigorous sanitization program and have dramatically reduced the number of people and patient encounters in the office.  We will be open and continue to offer eye care services during this time under the following circumstances:

We will be available for any eye care service that either the patient or our office feels is of any sort of urgent nature.  (Examples could be eye infections, decreased vision, lost or broken glasses, sudden or recent change of vision or prescription, flashes or floaters, or any other reason that our patients feel they need to be seen.)  Patients may be asked to wait in their cars until we call each patient back to maintain adequate social distancing.  We will also ask each patient to wash their hands before being seen. 

We will not be seeing anyone with a fever, anyone that has been in contact with anyone who has been ill, or anyone who has traveled out of the country in the last two weeks.

We will extend contact lens prescriptions for a limited time and will offer free shipping to your home/office.

We will be available for glasses pick-ups by appointment only.  We will not be adjusting glasses at this time, but we do recommend coming back for adjustments once this situation clears.  We will also be happy to deliver them to your car.

Our office remains open with some adjustments to our hours and staffing.  We are here if you have any questions, concerns, or need to make any contact lens orders.  We will also continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.

Regards,
