Yearly Conventional Contact Lenses

Before buying Yearly lenses, please read the Monthly Contact Lenses Versus Yearly answers from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Gary S Hirshfield MD says, “The advantage of planned replacement is that a new lens will always have fewer deposits, especially proteins, on it. The deposits that develop on contact lenses over time with use can lead to chronic inflammation that can make contact lens wear intolerable. Therefore, I think planned replacement at a minimum of once a month is beneficial and I recommend it.” 
 
Conventional disposable lenses are not prescribed in Western and developed countries nowadays because of the high risk of infection and complications than disposable lenses. They usually come in a pair and the same lens is worn for a long time. For Extended wear and silicone hydrogel, you can choose the above-mentioned brands as well.
