Acuvue Vita Contact Lenses
Monthly replacement contact lenses can offer a better value for money. But continuous use can cause changes to the lens resulting to a declining level of comfort. This can be due to decreased lens hydration, protein and dirt deposits on the lens, and others that may be caused by improper handling and cleaning.
