Why daily wear contact lenses are the perfect solution for itchy sore eyes in hot, humid or dry conditions.
It's high summer here in Cyprus when the heat rises to the mid 30s degree C and conditions are either dry and dusty or very humid. For several years now, I've found my eyes get really sore and itchy either beacuse I'm sweating buckets from cycling or just doing plain old household chores!
I've already mentionied on other pages that I like to use a daily disposable contact lens when I do summer watersports like water skiing. But this year I decided to invest in wearing daily wear contact lenses for the entire summer - mid June through to mid September.
Well after the first few weeks of summer, I am pleased to say that sore eyes and contact lenses is no longer a problem for me!
While daily disposable soft contacts are more expensive than 2 weekly disposables, I did some maths and, because I was often throwing away my 2 weekly lenses after less than a week when my eyes were really sore, I figured that investing in daily contacts wasn't going to cost me any more money.
I also discovered that Acuvue now do an economical 90 day pack of 1-Day Acuvue Moist lenses, saving me money versus buying my normal packs of 30 Acuvue Moist lenses.
The daily lenses are thinner than 2 weekly ones so you have to take more care when removing them from their containers, but my eyes really do feel so much better having a fresh pair in every day.
Last time round, I ordered two packs of 90 Acuvue Moist daily disposable contact lenses which will keep me going for the entire summer.
As usual I shopped around for the best price, but still came back to my preferred supplier, AC Lens for my daily wear contact lenses.
But then I discovered an EVEN CHEAPER supplier, this time based in the UK, called Vision Direct. My favourite 1-Day Acuvue Moist daily wear contact lenses cost just £47.95 for a pack of 90 lenses. They are delivered super fast via courier for less than £5 and, unlike ordering from the USA where deliveries take up to a month, I also don't pay any customs duty.
