At Heiko by Heiko in Torre del Mar, we offer a broad selection of the best contact lenses on the market. We are up-to-date with the latest training, research and development, so you can expect knowledgeable service as we assist you to find your perfect lenses.
There are several options for you to explore, and each type of lens has its advantages. But rest assured that we will find the type of lens that most suits your needs!
Monthly contact lenses are typically the standard choice with contact lens wearers. As with daily contact lenses, the monthly lenses must be removed before sleeping. The difference is that they must be stored in a special contact lens case after being thoroughly cleaned with contact lens solution. The advantage of these lenses is they are normally cheaper than the daily option. With monthly lenses, the wearer is responsible for keeping them clean every day. Contact lenses must be kept very clean because certain types of bacteria are harmful to the eye and can cause long term problems with vision.
Daily contact lenses are worn for one day and then disposed of. The advantages of daily lenses include that they do not require cleaning, unlike monthly lenses. Moreover, you do not need to bring your contact lens case or contact lens solution with you on an overnight trip. You simply dispose of your current lenses (responsibly!) and insert new ones the next day. The wearer has to be aware of the environmental impact of daily contact lenses: each lens comes in a plastic case and if you wear them every day, you will be getting rid of around 60 individual pods and around 60 individual contact lenses every month. They must be recycled and disposed of responsibly. As well as this, daily lenses do tend to be slightly more expensive than monthly lenses. This is only if you plan on wearing your daily lenses every day. If you only wish to wear contact lenses every other day – or even just at the weekend! – then the price is reasonable.
Extended wear contact lenses can be worn non-stop for an extended period. Some lenses can be worn for seven days and some for a month. Many people find these lenses ideal because they are inserted and then can be forgotten about until they have to be removed. The wearer must be aware that this kind of contact lens is not perfect for everybody and some people might find it quite uncomfortable to wear lenses for such a long time.
All of our lenses feature built-in UV filters, which can help to protect the wearer’s eyes from dangerous UV rays from the sun. In addition, it is advised that you wear sunglasses and a hat with a brim to get the best protection all year round.
We offer our customers a free 10-day trial of contact lenses. This allows the customers to see if the contact lenses are comfortable enough for them to wear for an extended period of time and if their vision is corrected when using them.
