- Are contact lenses safe?
When used as directed, most people can wear contact lenses without complications. Successful contact lens wear depends on following the instructions of your eye care professional.

Only your eye care professional is educated, trained, and licensed to examine, diagnose, and provide treatment for your eyes and prescribe contact lenses.

- What is astigmatism?
Astigmatism is a common condition that usually occurs when the front surface of the eye, the cornea, has an irregular curvature. One way to think of this is that with astigmatism, the cornea's shape is more like that of an American football or rugby ball than a basketball. The light passing through the more curved surface comes to a focus before the light passing through the less curved surface. As a result, light is focused differently in your eye, and you have blurry vision. But don't worry. There are DAILIES® brand contact lenses specially designed for eyes just like yours—they’re called DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® Toric contact lenses.
- Do you have DAILIES® BRAND CONTACT LENSES FOR CUSTOMERS WITH ASTIGMATISM?
Yes - DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® Toric contact lenses are made especially for people with astigmatism so they can enjoy the comfort of daily disposable contact lenses.
- WHAT IS PRESBYOPIA?
Over time, the ability of our eyes to focus on near objects decreases, causing small objects, like newspaper print, to become blurry. Intermediate vision, like looking at a computer screen, can also become distorted. This is called presbyopia.
- IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET DAILY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES THAT WILL CHANGE MY EYE COLOR?
Yes. Colour contact lenses are available that are designed to be worn daily and thrown away. FreshLook® ONE-DAY contact lenses are available in Blue, Grey, Green and Pure Hazel. Ask your eye care professional if FreshLook® ONE-DAY contact lenses are an option for you. Contact lenses, even if worn for cosmetic reasons, are medical devices that must only be worn under the prescription, direction and supervision of an eye care professional. Serious eye health problems may occur as a result of sharing contact lenses.
