OWNDAYS has recently 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.
Aside from their comfort-enhancing features, Clear Vision lenses also offer excellent UV protection. They are able to 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 proactive measures to safeguard eye health, such as using UV-coated contact lenses like Clear Vision.
The Clear Vision range has been 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 complications such as corneal swelling and ulcers, as explained by Mr Toh.
In addition, the Advance line features a hydrophilic hydrogel coating that helps reduce protein deposits and potential eye irritation. The moisture-rich environment created by this coating maintains a smooth lens surface that discourages the adhesion of deposits.
Clear Vision Advance lenses are particularly suitable for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. They also offer increased resistance to chipping and tearing, thanks to their enhanced tensile strength.
OWNDAYS also addresses the issue of blue light exposure with their Clear Vision lenses. Blue light, emitted by electronic devices, can cause eye strain and disrupt sleep patterns. To combat this, OWNDAYS offers Clear Vision lenses with blue light protection, helping users manage their exposure to this potentially harmful light.
