Contact Lenses and Allergies

One in five Americans deal with eye allergies, and approximately 75% of adults have some form of vision correction vision. About 64% of them wearing glasses, leaving about 11% that rely on contact lenses. So those suffering from ocular allergies often experience discomfort because contact lenses can often aggravate allergy symptoms.

Use of daily disposable contact lenses can considerably reduce ocular allergy symptoms in contact lens wearers with allergies. As a result, many doctors prescribing more daily ocular lenses than ever before. The daily disposable contacts are discarded after each use, and thus prevents the accumulation of allergen deposits on the lenses.
