OWNDAYS has introduced Clear Vision lenses, which are designed to provide up to eight hours of comfortable wear. These lenses contain hyaluronic acid, a moisture-retaining compound that enhances water retention, reduces tear evaporation, minimizes protein absorption on the outermost layer of the eye, and promotes uninterrupted blinking, according to Mr Toh.
Aside from their moisture-retaining properties, Clear Vision lenses also offer UV protection. They can block 80% of UVA rays and 95% of UVB rays, making them essential in a sunny climate like Singapore. 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 eye health in the long run.
Introducing Clear Vision Advance
OWNDAYS has expanded its Clear Vision range with the introduction of Clear Vision Advance lenses. These lenses are known for their improved oxygen permeability, thanks to their composition. Mr Toh explained that the silicone hydrogel material allows 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.
In addition to improved oxygen flow, the Advance line features a hydrophilic hydrogel coating that helps reduce protein deposits, minimizing the potential for eye irritation. Mr Toh highlighted that the moisture-rich environment of these lenses maintains a smooth surface, discouraging the adhesion of deposits.
Clear Vision Advance lenses are an excellent choice for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. They also offer enhanced tensile strength, ensuring increased resistance to chipping and tearing.
