most attractive eye color

What’s the most attractive eye color?

What is the most attractive eye color?

The eyes are considered as the most attractive facial features. Everyone’s eyes are very unique including the color of their eyes. The colored part of the eye is called the iris and controls pupil size. No two people will share the same color, shape or appearance of the eyes. 

Many of us have an interest in a particular color regarding eye color, whether it belongs to us or our partners or loved ones – but did you know that there are colors that are preferred?

From previous research, it has confirmed that people are more interested in brighter irises than darker ones, and it seems that the stereotype of blue and green eyes being the most amazing does exist, as the recent research shows that the most scientifically attractive eye color is either blue and green.

the most attractive eye color

Interestingly, while we can associate this color with “baby blues” or green eyes, the fact is that we do not have the full pigment in our eyes at birth. Thus, many children are born with blue eyes that gradually change into different colors when they grow up. 

While blue eyes tend to have a natural glow to them, brown eyes also definitely have their advantages as well. The people with brown eyes have the most common pigments called melanin in their iris, which means that they are better protected from the sun and have less risk of eye diseases than people with brightly colored eyes. Hazel eyes are in second place because they have most melanin, but their eyes are most pigmented around the edges of iris with a combination of gold, brown and green filling the center. Hazel eyes are also selected as one of the most attractive eye colors and arguably have the best of both worlds, health and beauty. 

The eyes can tell a lot about a person’s emotions and are the most expressive facial features. When discussing the most beautiful eyes in the world, it is important to consider that people have a variety of attractive qualities. The eyes come in different colors, shapes and contrasts that make them very unique for individuals. 

At Malaya Optical, we believe that all eyes are beautifully colored and celebrate it with our colored contact lenses available in a variety of colors. You also can choose plano power for colored contact lenses. And book an appointment with Malaya Optical Optometrist for further clarification.

Dailies AquaComfort Plus

Do Dailies AquaComfort Plus have UV-protection?

Do Dailies AquaComfort Plus have UV-protection?

Dailies AquaComfort Plus are a good choice of contact lenses for a wide-range of people, depending on their eye prescription. Have you experienced increased dryness throughout the day while wearing your contact lens? And are you looking for a suitable daily lens option for new or old wearers? If so, we advise you to try Alcon’s Dailies AquaComfort Plus contact lenses!

Do Dailies AquaComfort Plus have UV-Protection

The Dailies AquaComfort Plus have some innovative technologies that enhance the comfort of the wearer and the clarity of vision for the wearer. This includes:

  • Blink-activated moisture technology – check your own eye hydration system and release moisture on both sides of the contact lens every time you blink to keep your eyes fresh while wearing. 
  • Lightstream lens technology – it allows the edge of the lens to be very thin, making it easy to insert and remove while making it more comfortable to wear. 

Dailies AquaComfort Plus are also available in Toric lens (Astigmatism) for those with astigmatism. But, unfortunately Dailies AquaComfort Plus do not offer UV-protection through your eyes and are not made from silicone hydrogel material. However, Dailies AquaComfort Plus is a more affordable daily contact lens and it’s soaked in a wetting agent to provide immediate comfort after initial insertion.

Honestly, this is clearly an affordable daily lens option for new users or those who want to switch from their monthly contacts to daily. This technology resists the accumulation of unwanted proteins that can occur on the surface of the lens. Although, the high water content built into the Dailies AquaComfort Plus allows for long wear with great comfort and clear vision. These lenses are specially designed to keep your eyes from dryness and it’s a perfect lens for wearers who work in an air-conditioned or heated environment as it is always humid throughout the day. 

Daily lenses are great for anyone who leads an active lifestyle because they are easy to take care of without cleaning or disinfection. For a daily disposable lens, just remove each lens after use, and install a new pair every morning. Let’s make an appointment with Malaya Optical Optometrists and we’ll help you regarding your eyes problem.

Wearing uncomfortable contact lenses can leave you frustrated and depressed. If you feel uncomfortable while wearing contact lenses, feel free to raise a problem with our Malaya Optical Optometrists to make sure your problem is resolved. 

Here is a quick list of our best monthly contact lenses, we have chosen to embrace the opportunity to provide our patients with the best contact lenses in the market;

Four most comfortable contact lenses
  1. Bausch and Lomb Ultra; the Ultra is the new addition to the long-established daily wear in the market. The research and development has invested in the new contact lens material, we still feel it is time for this quality lens to reach our examination room. So far, they have managed to acquire this lens, and have to manage to make some of their patients wear contact lenses daily due to their performance. These brands are also best for dry eye patients.
  2. Acuvue Oasys; a two-week replacement contact lenses, Acuvue Oasys has long existed and they have been contact lenses for over 20 years. For other reasons, Johnson & Johnson also has the largest share in the contact lens market in the United States. A great aspect about these lenses is their UV-protection, blocking 96% UV-A and 99% UV-B radiation. These lenses also are available in Astigmatism and Multifocal with two-chosen base curves; 8.8 mm and 8.4 mm.
  3. CooperVision Biofinity; using Aquaform Comfort Science technology, Biofinity is made from premium silicone hydrogel and the best monthly replacement lens that performs well for dry eyes.

Similar to Acuvue Oasys, Biofinity also has contact lenses for Astigmatism and Multifocal option.
  4. Alcon Air Optix Night & Day; this lens has been designed to be continuous use contact lens for 30 days. But we didn’t prefer to use 30 days continuous wear, this monthly lens remains nice even if you didn’t sleep with the contacts. Air Optix Night & Day Aqua have one of the highest oxygen permeability on the market, which leads to better overall eye health. These lenses are also slightly smaller than other monthly contact lenses which can increase comfort.

All of these lenses can be the right choice for patients who suffer from dry eyes caused by contact lenses and who have difficulties to wear their contact lens for a full 12-14 hours per day. If you have tried these lenses but still have problems like uncomfortable or blurred vision, we suggest you wear a daily disposable lens everyday.
