The quality and safety of many of the most popular brands of colored and limbal ring contact lenses sold in Japan and Asia Pacific have been called into question by The National Consumer Affairs Center (NCAC) of Japan
From night market and other places, you can easily find contact lenses that are selling at RM15 (approximately USD $4.50) per pair. Ever wonder why no such price of colour contact lenses available at leading optical stores?
In fact, the report entitled “Safety of Color Contact Lenses” highlighted that quality lenses such as 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE had no color pigment on the surface of its lenses. The report stated that some manufacturers inaccurately claim “no pigment on the surface” of their lenses when in fact they do.
Color contact lenses are designed and manufactured to the same high safety and performance standards as used across its entire clear contact lens range. Establish manufacturers hold on to their promises to protect eye health as the colorants are embedded between two thin, transparent layers of lens material and prevents the pigment from reaching the surface.
NCAC report co-sponsored by the Japan Ophthalmological Association (JOA) and the Japan Contact Lens Society (JCLS) focused on two areas primarily: product attributes and side effects. Human eye diameter is approximately 12mm in (more…)

As you notice from the picture above, Blincon CC color contact lens comes with 2 series; Natural and Romance. Keen to try on but aren’t sure which series and colour to choose? Just thought I’d share my thoughts. (more…)
I received lots of queries about Blincon Color Contact Lens that shouldn’t have been there in the first place. I understand the confusion. You were informed by different eye care practitioners, the different answers.
I had clarified this matter with Blincon supplier. All series of Blincon Colour Contact Lenses are designed to be worn 1 to 3 months before being disposed of. All series includes Blincon (black box), Blincon Pearl, Blincon Sweetie, Blincon BB, Blincon CC, Blincon B Color Toric, and Blincon Color Toric.
Well, be responsible for your own eyes. If you know you are lead an active lifestyle, by wearing your Blincon Color contact lens on daily basis for long hours, then discard your contact lenses after a month wear. By saving a few bucks now and burn a big hole in your pocket later by getting an eye infection is not worth it!
If you wear your Blincon Color contact lens about 5 times a week, 5-7 hours a day and practice proper contact lens handling methods, such as rubbing lens, using protein remover to clean your lenses and others, then suggested that you may use the Blincon Color Contact Lens for 2 months.
3 months disposable will be suggested for those who hardly use their lenses. Maybe you only wear it 1 to 2 times a week.
Wears your contacts responsibly!
You may already have one eye on the latest trends and fads, knowing that colour contact lenses are becoming increasingly popular within celebrity limelight and culture. We’re long past their common and sole use, before coloured contact lenses were used for spectacular transformations on set, for actors to become a particular character or to fit a certain genre. Nowadays you can find celebrities, as well as fashion savvy people wearing them to enhance their everyday look.
Similar to dying your hair, wearing jewellery and painting your nails, colour contacts can add those finishing touches to your desired image. If you already require prescription contact lenses then why not get creative and substitute those clear contacts with something a little different? It may just give you the extra edge that you’re after.
Perhaps you’re a first timer and you’re fluttering with the idea? Cosmetic coloured contact lenses can go a long way in providing you with a brand new glint for all to admire. (more…)
Cooper Vision in Malaysia recently launched Biomedics 1 Day Extra Toric contact lens, and I had fitted this lens with many of our existing daily toric lens wearer. Feedbacks are very positive.
Should I change to wear Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism?
Are you satisfied with your current vision?
If YES, then do you feel comfortable wearing it? If YES, then why bother changing your current lens? (more…)
Optical shops are growing like mushroom in Malaysia, especially Klang Valley. There will be no sustainability without competitiveness. Each optical shop will have their own gimmick in gaining customers trust and loyalty.
One of the gimmick certain optical shops prefer to use is on the issue of contact lens base curve. Eye care practitioner will tends to get your eyes curvature measured and gives advice on the ‘correct’ contact lens base curve that you should use. I do not deny that contact lens base curve plays a role in ensuring your wearing comfort.
But, should you believe and follow bluntly on the advice given by eye care practitioner? The answer is NO!
