OWNDAYS has introduced Clear Vision lenses, which are designed to provide up to eight hours of comfortable wear. The 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.
Clear Vision lenses also offer significant UV protection, blocking 80% of UVA rays and 95% of UVB rays. This is particularly important in sunny climates 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 taking proactive measures to protect eye health, such as using UV-coated contact lenses.
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. Mr Toh explained that 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 and minimize eye irritation. Mr Toh highlighted that the moisture-rich environment of these lenses discourages 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.
In addition to UV protection and enhanced oxygen permeability, OWNDAYS also addresses the issue of blue light exposure. Blue light, emitted by digital screens, can cause eye strain and disrupt sleep patterns. OWNDAYS offers lenses with blue light filtering capabilities to help manage this exposure.
