OWNDAYS has recently introduced their 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 to 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 are able to block 80 percent of UVA rays and 95 percent of UVB rays. This is especially important in sunny climates like Singapore, where prolonged sun exposure can increase the risk of conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium.
OWNDAYS has expanded their Clear Vision range to include Clear Vision Advance lenses, which have improved oxygen permeability due to their composition. These silicone hydrogel lenses allow for enhanced oxygen delivery 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.
In addition, the Advance line 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. This makes Clear Vision Advance an ideal choice for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. Furthermore, this lens series offers enhanced tensile strength, providing increased resistance to chipping and tearing.
OWNDAYS also recognizes the importance of managing blue light exposure. While it is not explicitly mentioned in the original article, it is worth noting that blue light exposure from digital devices can contribute to eye strain and other vision-related issues. To address this concern, OWNDAYS offers lens options that provide blue light protection, helping to reduce the potential negative effects of prolonged screen time.
