Competence, like truth, beauty, and contact lenses,
is in the eye of the beholder.
Buying contacts isn't the same as buying glasses for reading. You can't simply walk into a department store and try on a few pair and decide what works best for you. Contact lenses are medical devices, which require wearers to follow a prescribed process to get them.
While your optometrist must make the final decision on which contact lenses are the right fit, your opinion counts, too! Before you head out for your eye exam, think about how often you'd like to replace your contacts with new ones. Daily contact lenses offer you a fresh new pair every day. That means no daily cleanings with no need to buy contact lens solution, making this option extremely convenient.
