                  That’s a tough question as it totally depends on your personal needs and preferences. Monthly replacement contact lenses may be better for those who prefer not to dispose of the their contact lenses every day or the space-saving benefit of fewer contact lens boxes. Daily disposable contact lenses may be better for consumers who like a fresh new lens every day and prefer not to have to clean and disinfect their lenses.

                   

                    Monthly replacement contact lenses are designed to be worn for up to 30 days then replaced with a new lens at the beginning of a new month.
