Monthly lenses: The advantages
You suffer from visual impairment and need to wear glasses? You have been using daily lenses because you don't want to wear your glasses every day? Then monthly lenses are the right choice for you. These lenses can be used for a full 30 days. Most need to be placed in cleaning solution at night but several types can be worn overnight as well.
Contact lenses have many advantages over spectacles: they offer more freedom of movement with no frame to disturb your vision - in fact, you can wear them undetected all day long and you will look as if you have perfect eyesight. They also allow you to enjoy significantly better vision, even when you have strong defective eyesight. Some wearers feel more attractive without glasses so they occasionally wear daily lenses. However, if you'd like to be free from glasses every day, monthly contact lenses are a cheaper option.

Advice on monthly lenses: What you should know
You want to use monthly lenses but you don't have any previous experience? Already a contact lens wearer but looking for more specific information about the use of monthly disposable lenses? Our trained opticians answer your most important questions right here.
1: How do monthly contact lenses work?
In principle, all contact lenses work in exactly the same way as spectacles; they correct refractive errors in the eye. Incident light lands on the artificial lens first and is then broken up in accordance with the visual defect before it is applied to the natural lens. In contrast to glasses, monthly lenses are worn in direct contact with the eye; the lens floats on the tear film over the cornea. Monthly contact lenses belong to the type known as soft lenses. They are made of hydrogel, silicone hydrogel or a mixture of both. Monthly lenses are more resilient than daily or weekly lenses, and only start to wear out after about 30 days.
2: Who can use monthly lenses?
A monthly lens is suitable for any visual defect. Perhaps you are short or long-sighted, or maybe you suffer from an astigmatism or presbyopia; there is a matching monthly lens for all these cases. Certain lenses are considered more suitable for dry or sensitive eyes; Air Optix Aqua monthly lenses, for example. Perhaps you only want to use contact lenses occasionally. In that case, daily or weekly lenses are a better choice. Or, you want a product that doesn't need maintenance. Again, daily lenses are a better option. Alternatively, after consulting your optician, you might find that day-and-night-lenses, such as Air Optix Night & Day Aqua are more appropriate.
3: How should I care for my monthly lenses?
It's easy to care for your monthly lenses, especially if you use a combined solution that allows you to clean, rinse and disinfect both lenses at once. What if you have sensitive eyes or you're allergic to preservatives? In this case, choose a peroxide system; use the surface cleanser first and then rinse the contact lenses with saline. They are then placed in the peroxide solution for disinfecting. The special container that comes with this system ensures that the hydrogen peroxide is neutralised. However, for this to happen, you need to leave the lenses in the solution for the specified amount of time.
It is recommended that protein deposits are removed regularly in order for the lenses to function without problems for the full 30 days. This can either be done once a week with special enzyme tablets or you can choose a combined solution with integrated protein removal.
4: Why is a contact lens adjustment by the optician necessary?
Contact lenses should always be precisely adjusted to your specific needs. Not only does the diopter number need to be exactly right, the optometrist or ophthalmologist also measures for matching curvature (BC) value and diameter (DIA) value. Plus, only a specialist can judge what type of monthly contact lenses are most suitable for your eyes. You should also visit an optician or an ophthalmologist if you encounter any problems when wearing monthly contact lenses.
5: Will I literally get 30 days of wear from monthly disposables?
Your monthly lenses will function perfectly for a full 30 days from the first day of wear. It doesn't matter whether you use the lenses every day or only from time to time; they will last for 30 days from Day One. That's because deposits that are not visible to the naked eye form on the lenses and can cause eye inflammation if you wear them for longer than the stated 30 days. Also, the lens starts to age from the very first day of wear; oxygen permeability decreases to the extent that your eyes will hurt if you use the lens for longer than specified.
