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.

are monthly contacts good for 30 days

Are monthly contacts good for 30 days?

Is it okay if I wore monthly contacts for 30 days?

Wearing a lens for the first time can be an exciting experience, but usually it will take your eye to get used to it when you are wearing them. Many contact lenses are designed for an extended wearing approved by FDA which are made up of silicone hydrogel that can allow oxygen to pass through the eyes easily. 

Wearing contact lenses longer than their recommended length of time can increase the risk of eye infections and complications. There are many different types of contacts on the market which are designed for daily use or daily disposable. This means the lens will be taken out for each night. Despite, monthly lenses are generally worn during a day and cleaned or stored for each night, and then disposed of after a month of use. For monthly contacts, same contact lenses can be worn continuously for up to a week longer or for 30 days. So it is important to follow the guidelines from your eye care specialists and all labelling instructions on caring for the lenses.

are monthly lens are good for 30 days?

Why not to use Monthly contacts longer

Your monthly lenses should be thrown away 30 days after opening the contact lenses; regardless on how many times you have worn it. But still, using them in a longer period than recommended can potentially cause an eye infection, or irritation while wearing the contact lenses; or blurry vision. As stated, the maximum time of wearing any lens has been approved for only 30 days of continuous wear. The longer you wear the contact lenses consistently, the greater the risk for an eye infection. This also can lead to blindness without a proper treatment. Although, a monthly disposable lens should be replaced after 30 days, even if you didn’t wear it everyday.

In addition, most optometrists recommend wearing daily disposable lenses for those who didn’t wear it everyday. For the lens solution, never leave a lens soaking in solution for more than a week. Thus, if your lens is soaking for a few days, replace it with the new fresh solution the night before you wore it on the next day.

‘Can I sleep wearing Bausch & Lomb Ultra?’

Wearing contact lenses is different from wearing eye-glasses. Because they are worn directly on your eyes, the contact lenses will affect any way your eyes function. These effects tend to increase the length of time the lens stays on your eyes before removal.

Although a large number of people manage to wear contact lenses without problems, before you decide whether to start or continue wearing contact lenses for everyday wear, you need to get consultation from your optometrists regarding the effect of contact lenses on your eyes and the risk associated with wearing contact lenses. Let’s meet Malaya Optical Optometrists for consultation regarding your eyes.

However, it is important to not wear your lenses longer than recommended by your eye care specialists since doing so increases the risk of adverse effects. Since only your eye care specialists can determine how your eyes react to the contact lenses through a professional eye examination.

The Bausch & Lomb Ultra contact lenses are indicated for daily wear or extended wear for up to 7 days between removals for cleaning and disinfecting of the lens as prescribed by your eye care specialists. Despite, sleep with Bausch & Lomb Ultra with an extended wear, once the lens are removed, your eyes should have a rest without lens wear for at least one nights.

Still, if you face some problems with your contact lenses and lens care products, it could result in serious injury to your eye, thus, it is essential that you have to follow all labelling instructions for proper use of the lenses and lens care products, including the lens case.

The risk of microbial keratitis (infected corneal ulcer) complication are caused by a weakening of the cornea’s resistance to infection; improper lens disinfection; poor personal hygiene; unsuitability to the particular lens or wearing schedule; damage to the lens; improper fitting or due to length of wearing time. As a result, the specialist’s have to set up the overnight application period from up to 6 nights and 7 days of continuous wear.
