What Are Disposable Contact Lenses?
Disposable contact lenses are designed to be discarded and replaced per your Eye Doctor’s recommendation. Depending on your specific eye health needs, Dr. Brown will instruct you to discard your contact lenses at the appropriate time. This time may vary from every day to every 12 weeks.
Why do I need to discard my lenses on a frequent, regular basis?
Less is best for eye health! The more frequently you replace your contact lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes can be. Substances like protein, calcium, and lipids — found naturally in your tears — can build up on your lenses. Over time, these natural deposits may cause your contacts to feel less comfortable and make you more prone to eye infections.
What are the Different Types of Disposable Lenses?
Today there is quite a selection of disposable contacts!

We carry contact lenses for the multifocal and monovision patient. These contacts provide distance and near vision at the same time. There are different lens designs available depending on your lifestyle needs.
What if I prefer or am unable to wear contact lenses that are not disposable?
We can help you! Gas permeable (GP) contact lenses or oxygen permeable lenses, are today’s most state-of-the-art “hard” contact lenses. But they shouldn’t be confused with the hard contact lenses of yesteryear. GPs can also provide better visual acuity, durability, and deposit resistance than soft contact lenses. They can be easier to clean, and since they’re long-lasting, they can be less expensive in the long term than soft lenses.
GPs provide excellent vision especially for people who don’t obtain acceptable vision with soft lenses. This includes people who have astigmatism for whom soft contacts don’t produce the desired visual acuity.
GP bifocals and multifocals are a popular option because they come in many designs. Different bifocal designs work well for different people, so having many choices is a real plus. Also, many people find that the best combination of near and distance acuity is obtained with GP bifocals.
GPs are used for distorted corneas due to conditions such as keratoconus and trauma.
Special designed GP devices are used to gently re-shape to corneal at night and correct your vision during the day without contact lenses or glasses.
