What is the Difference Between Monthly and Yearly Contact Lenses?

Feb 04,2024 | Lee

Are you looking to switch up your eye color? Colored contacts seem appealing but you're not sure which type to choose. Should you go for long-lasting yearly lenses? Or convenient monthlies? It's a tough decision, but fear not! We are happy to help you make your selection.

What is a yearly disposable contact?

Yearly disposable contacts are designed to be worn for up to one year before they need to be replaced. They offer long-lasting wear and can be a cost-effective option for individuals who prefer extended use. These lenses require regular cleaning and storage in a lens case with disinfecting solutions to maintain hygiene and prevent eye infections.

What are one-month colored contacts?

One-month colored contacts provide a temporary change in eye color while also correcting vision. They are designed to be worn for up to one month before replacement. Like yearly disposable contacts, these lenses also require cleaning and storage. It's crucial to follow the recommended replacement schedule and care instructions to ensure optimal eye health and comfort.

Are yearly contacts better than monthly?

When determining whether yearly contacts are better than monthly contacts, there is no definitive answer. It largely depends on individual preferences, lifestyle, and eye health. Here are some key factors to consider:

  • Affordability:

Yearly decorative lenses are a cost-effective option. With just one replacement per year, they offer lower overall expenses compared to monthly disposables.

  • Convenience:

For busy individuals, yearly disposables may be more convenient. Unlike monthly lenses, there's no need to remember to change them frequently. You only need to replace yearly disposables once a year!

  • Ease of use:

With their excellent moldability, colored contact lenses designed for yearly use are easy to handle and wear. They conform to the shape of your eyes, providing a comfortable fit and making them a convenient choice for both experienced and new contact lens wearers.

  • Lifestyle:

Yearly disposables are a great choice for women with busy lifestyles. And, if you're new to wearing contacts, the less frequent replacement schedule of yearly disposables can make it easier to adapt.

  • Hygiene:

Both types require daily cleaning and disinfection, but yearly disposables need extra attention due to their longer usage period. Unibling's yearly and monthly disposable contact lenses use advanced Sandwich Painting Tech, which divides the lens into three layers to prevent pigment from touching your cornea. This ensures that your eyes stay healthy and safe.

They're perfect for all-day wear, keeping your eyes feeling fresh and moisturized. The enhanced breathability allows for better oxygen flow, reducing the risk of dryness and irritation.

Assessing Your Unique Needs

When selecting contact lenses, it's important to prioritize comfort, hygiene, and maintaining good eye health. The choice between yearly and monthly contacts depends on individual preferences, lifestyle, eye health, and cost considerations. With both options presenting advantages and disadvantages, consulting with an eye care professional who can assess your unique needs is crucial in guiding you towards the most suitable choice.



Q: Are monthly contacts 30 days or 30 uses?

A: Monthly contacts are designed to be worn for approximately 30 days, but it's important to note that this timeframe can vary depending on individual usage and care. Some individuals may find that their monthly contacts last slightly longer than 30 days, while others may need to replace them sooner due to factors such as protein buildup, debris, or discomfort. It's crucial to follow the specific instructions provided by your eye care professional and the manufacturer to ensure optimal eye health and vision correction.

Q: Are yearly colored contact lenses safe?

A: Yearly colored lenses, like any other contact lenses, can be safe when used and cared for properly. However, it's important to note that all contact lenses, including colored ones, pose some level of risk if not handled correctly. It is recommended to consult with an eye care professional before using colored lenses to ensure they are suitable for your eyes and to receive proper fitting and guidance on lens care and usage.
