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, a representative from OWNDAYS.
Aside from their comfort-enhancing features, Clear Vision lenses also offer UV protection. They can block 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 eye conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium. Mr Toh emphasized the importance of taking proactive measures, like using UV-coated contact lenses, to safeguard long-term eye health.
The Clear Vision range has expanded to include Clear Vision Advance lenses, which have improved oxygen permeability due to their composition. 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 other related complications, explained Mr Toh.
The Advance line also features a hydrophilic hydrogel coating that helps reduce protein deposits, minimizing the potential for eye irritation. The moisture-rich environment created by this coating maintains a smooth lens surface that discourages the adhesion of deposits. As a result, Clear Vision Advance lenses are an ideal choice for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. Additionally, this lens series offers enhanced tensile strength, providing increased resistance to chipping and tearing.
In addition to UV protection and enhanced oxygen permeability, OWNDAYS also addresses the issue of blue light exposure. Blue light, emitted by digital screens and electronic devices, can have negative effects on eye health. OWNDAYS offers lenses that help manage blue light exposure, providing further protection for the eyes.
