Daily, Weekly, Monthly Soft Contact Lenses.

Soft Contact Lenses are basically all types of modern contact lenses except for long term use lenses which are hard contact lenses because they have a very long life, up to a year and so need to be made of a harder material than soft lenses.

Soft lenses can be disposable lenses like daily, weekly, monthly or continuous wear lenses and even colour contact lenses.

With a monthly soft lens you still have to clean the lenses in solution, if your thinking that only hard lenses need cleaning then you're thinking of daily disposable lenses or continuous wear lenses which you don't have to clean and can throw away at the end of the day, in the case of daily disposable lenses or wear them for a month continuously then throw them away after a month of continuous wear.

The advantage of a continuous lens is that you never have to remove them for the entire month, and no cleaning is contact lens solutions is required either, with a monthly lens you will have to take them out each night for cleaning.

The main advantage to be had with soft lenses is that they feel more comfortable because they are thinner, some people can get on with hard lenses and like long term use lenses because they can be cheaper in the long-run.
