It's a little ridiculous how I became myopic. I was in my graduating year in secondary school and one day the classroom light above me became dim. They didn't fix that so after 2 weeks I moved to another spot with better lighting, but the irreversible damage had been done and so from then on I was myopic. VERY SAD RIGHT!! It's not as though I used the computer for hours, or sat too close to the TV, or read books lying down; all I wanted to do was study, but one stupid classroom light took my perfect eyesight away forever. 🙁
Fortunately my myopia isn't too serious. I can do without spectacles or contact lenses, but I prefer to have crystal clear vision. It's not a good feeling to be asked why I don't respond when people wave at me.
The problem with most contact lenses is that they tend to feel very DRY and UNCOMFORTABLE after extended periods of time of wear. There was once when I removed my contact lens from my eye and saw that the LENS WAS TORN. It was so dry I think it tore in my eye. Where did the missing bit go??!?! =O
We all know Bausch + Lomb for their contact lens and solutions, but did you know that they are also one of the world's largest suppliers of eye health products like medicines and implants for eye diseases? #learntsomethingnewtoday
Bausch + Lomb introduces their latest line of contact lenses called Biotrue ONEday lenses, which evidently from the name, are daily disposable contact lenses.
16 Hours Of Comfortable Wear
Optometrists always advise that contact lens should be worn for no more than 8 hours, but HELLO?, who is out for only 8 hours these days??
Work already takes up at least one-third of every 24 hours. Add to that traveling to and from work, going out after work, and other things we do like having:
- Stairs to walk down from......
- Social media to attend to......
- Makeup to retouch......
- Life to ponder about......
Who really wears contact lenses for
8 hours a day?
In my line of work, it is very important that I feel comfortable first, so that I can focus on talking to other people. Imagine I'm having a bout of dry eye and keep blinking and winking at the person I'm talking to!
"Hello, I'm Juli *wink*.
I understand that you *wink wink*
want to..... *wink wink*
get this for your... *wink wink wink wink*"
Sometimes my vision becomes blur and my eyes hurt from extended hours of wear. As a natural defence to protect themselves, they begin to tear. With increased frequency of winking and tearing, there goes my eye makeup! SMUDGE FEST! =(
That's why I love the idea of wearing a fresh pair of contact lens everyday, especially the Bausch + Lomb Biotrue ONEday lenses, which are so comfortable I don't feel them in my eyes. ^_^*
With Biotrue ONEday lenses, my vision stayed crisp and eyes remained comfortable even after a long day at work.
100% Oxygen For Your Eyes
When the open eye receives the 100% oxygen consumption it requires, your eyes remain healthy and CAN BREATHE. The Biotrue ONEday lenses are named so because they are inspired by the biology of your eyes.
The BioTrue ONEday lenses are so comfortable even with extended wear -- up to an amazing 16 HOURS OF WEAR!! -- because they are created to mimic the eye's own healthy tears to retain moisture level and shape. No more dry eyes, no more unintentional winking!
