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, minimize tear evaporation, reduce protein absorption on the ocular surface, and promote uninterrupted blinking, according to Mr Toh.
In addition to their comfort-enhancing features, Clear Vision lenses also offer UV protection. They can block 80 percent of UVA rays and 95 percent of UVB rays. This is particularly important in sunny climates 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 taking proactive measures, such as using UV-coated contact lenses, to safeguard long-term eye health.
One of the notable lenses in the Clear Vision range is Clear Vision Advance. These lenses have improved oxygen permeability due to their composition, making them ideal for 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. These features make Clear Vision Advance a suitable choice for individuals with dry or sensitive eyes. Additionally, this lens series offers enhanced tensile strength, ensuring increased resistance to chipping and tearing.
In response to the growing concern about blue light exposure, OWNDAYS also offers solutions to manage this issue. Blue light, emitted by electronic devices, can cause eye strain and disrupt sleep patterns. OWNDAYS provides lenses with blue light filtering capabilities to help reduce the negative effects of prolonged exposure to blue light.
