I have been wearing dailies for years and could never go back to monthlies.  soooo convenient and worth every penny IMO

Yes!! It’s well worth the price, and that’s coming from someone with very little money. I’m never going back to montly. My dailies are so much more convenient, and comfortable! I don’t even have to carry eye drops around in my purse anymore. 

But I don’t wear them every day, so it makes a lot more sense for me to use dailies. One months worth lasts me about 3 months.

You should ask for a sample. Or just get 2 weeks or a months worth to try them out. I’m sure not all brands are the same, just like regular contacts.

I love them! I don’t wear contacts regularly, so this option is actually better for me.

Love my dailies.  I switched years ago and have been very pleased!

Yes, absolutely love them! They feel much “fresher” than bi-weeklys and monthlys as I have dry eyes. They are more expensive though; maybe you can get them in bulk from clearlycontacts?

love dailies. cases and solutions add up! Also, with insurance, it comes out to $2 / day and is more hygienic than monthlies.

Yes! I’ve been wearing dailys for ~7 years and I can’t imagine wearing monthlys. You don’t have to worry about wasting one if it falls out and they are so much quicker to take out and toss at night. I don’t think the price difference between monthlys and dailys is too drastic… I could be wrong though.

cclove:  Yes I wore long wear lenses (putting them in a case every night and re wearing them next day) for years and years. My husband got me onto dailies and I would never go back. Yes they are expensive but it’s fantastic to wear a new pair every day and just toss them out at night. That part took some getting used to – just tossing them. But it’s great, and also nice to be able to keep a couple spares in my purse just in case my eyes go dry or I lose one. Totally worth it. What I would say though is I found they are not all created equal, some dry out faster than others, so you might have to try a couple samples – you should be able to get that from your optician.

I had asked my dr about dailies a long time ago, and his opinion was that the quality is not as high as it is in monthlies. I never did any further research so I don’t know if that was ever or is true. I have been wearing monthlies for TWENTY YEARS…omg…without a problem. Anyway, if you decide not to switch, I have to highly reccommend Clear Care peroxide cleaning solution. As long as you have the time to have your contacts out for 6 hours a night, this will make a huge difference in comfort and moisture. I also haven’t had an eye infection since I started using this stuff (about 8 years ago).

I just switched to dailies and I am thrilled with them! I have allergies and dailies have helped so much. I’d say they are worth the extra money for sure. You also save on lens cases and solution over time.

I use them but they are way more expensive than regular ones so I wish I used monthly contacts. I do use them 2 or 3 days though and I haven’t had any issues with that and that makes them cheaper in the long run

Just want to pop my old fashioned head in and mention that hard gas perms are a possibility as well.  If you’re going to take your lenses out every day anyway, might as well get a set that lasts a year or two.  It definitely depends on what’s going on with your eyes though, and my eye doctors have always been of the opinion that with the hot mess in my head, they’re the better contact style.  I just bought my new set, somewhere in the $300 range, I think (paid several weeks ago) and unless I lose one, I’m good to go for maybe 50 cents a day.  They do have disadvantages though – sucks when they slip out of place, for instance!

cclove:  I used to wear monthlies and only have dailies for the summer (I was a lifeguard and would lose my contacts in the pool all the time so dailies made sense). I recently switched to dailies all year long and I love it. To me it is worth the price. I don’t have to worry about losing a contact and then being short. My contacts never feel dry since I get a fresh pair every single day. The price worried me but now I dno’t regret it at all!

I love my dailies! They are much easier on my eyes. I also don’t wear them everyday. Like I rarely wear them to work. So it doesn’t add up price-wise.
