OWNDAYS has recently introduced their 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.
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.
One of the notable lenses in the Clear Vision range is Clear Vision Advance. These lenses have improved oxygen permeability due to their composition, specifically silicone hydrogel. According to Mr Toh, this allows for enhanced oxygen delivery to the cornea, promoting corneal health and reducing the risk of complications such as corneal swelling and ulcers.
The Advance line also features a hydrophilic hydrogel coating that helps reduce protein deposits, minimizing the potential for eye irritation. This makes Clear Vision Advance a suitable choice for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. Additionally, these lenses offer enhanced tensile strength, making them more resistant to chipping and tearing.
In addition to their other features, Clear Vision lenses also help manage blue light exposure. Blue light, which is emitted by digital screens and electronic devices, can cause eye strain and disrupt sleep patterns. By incorporating blue light filtering technology into their lenses, OWNDAYS aims to provide added protection against the harmful effects of prolonged screen time.
