OWNDAYS has introduced Clear Vision lenses, which are designed to provide up to eight hours of comfortable wear. These lenses are enriched with moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid, which helps enhance water retention, reduce tear evaporation, minimize protein absorption on the ocular surface, and promote uninterrupted blinking, according to Mr Toh.
Clear Vision lenses also offer excellent UV protection, blocking 80% of UVA rays and 95% of UVB rays. This is particularly important in a sunny climate like Singapore, where prolonged sun exposure can increase the risk of conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium. Mr Toh emphasized the importance of using UV-coated contact lenses to safeguard long-term eye health.
Introducing Clear Vision Advance
The Clear Vision range has been expanded to include Clear Vision Advance lenses, which have improved oxygen permeability due to their composition. Mr Toh highlighted that these silicone hydrogel lenses deliver enhanced oxygen flow to the cornea compared to traditional hydrogel lenses. This not only promotes corneal health but also reduces the risk of corneal swelling, ulcers, and related complications.
The Advance line also features a hydrophilic hydrogel coating that helps reduce protein deposits, minimizing the potential for eye irritation. Mr Toh explained that the moisture-rich environment maintains a smooth lens surface, preventing the adhesion of deposits.
Clear Vision Advance lenses are particularly suitable for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. Additionally, this lens series offers enhanced tensile strength, providing increased resistance to chipping and tearing.
