A letter to Acuvue Clear

Dear Acuvue Clear,

We understand that you had been a wanted well-rounded lens from a trusted brand. You had helped many people to enjoy the freedom of life without glasses at an affordable price. Your contribution all these years will never be forgotten.

However, you cannot deny the fact that many of Acuvue Clear wearers started complaining that their eyes easily feel tired and dry after 6 hours of wearing you. We understand that they should not use the contact lens for too long hours but they just cannot help it. Humans, nowadays, have such a hectic life and busy schedule, they just got no choice. Their work normally needed them to face the computers for long hours and in an air conditioner room.

Good news is that we found a solution to help these human beings! They will be able to wear the contact lenses for long hours without much feeling of dry and tired eyes. That is Acuvue Advance Plus. Acuvue Advance Plus can provide 94% of oxygen transmissibility to human eyes and this is strongly recommended for your current wearers to be upgraded to. Human beings will be able to enjoy the superior all day comfort, especially with an active lifestyle. Acuvue Advance Plus is definitely going to deliver a lens-free feel to their wearers.

We know you love your wearers but we sincerely know you would want the best for their eyes. You sure understand that Acuvue Clear cannot provide all the advantages that Acuvue Advance Plus can give. Wearing you for such long hours will only do harm to their eyes, so, please do inform your current wearer to upgrade themselves to wear Acuvue Advance Plus for a whole new experience in wearing contact lenses.

Your cooperation is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

CEO ACUVUE

What should I do if my contact lens become dehydrated?

What should I do if my contact lens become dehydrated?

If the soft contact lens is exposed to air while off the eye, it may become dry and brittle and need to be rehydrated. If the lens is adhering to a surface, e.g. the lens is sticking on your contact lens case, apply the recommended multipurpose solution before handling.

To rehydrate the contact lens, you should:

• Handle the contact lens carefully.
• Place the lens in its storage case and soak the contact lens in multipurpose solution for at least 1 hour until it returns to a soft state.
• Clean the contact lens first, then disinfect the rehydrated lens by using multipurpose solution.
• If after soaking and the contact lens does not become soft or if the surface remains dry, DO NOT USE THE CONTACT LENS UNTIL IT HAS BEEN EXAMINED BY YOUR EYE CARE PROFESSIONAL.

Contact Lenses and Sports

Contact Lenses and Sports

Contact lenses offer considerable advantages over spectacles for sport. Advantages over spectacles are larger field of view and unaffected by bad weather. With contact sports, both player and opponents are safer with no spectacle frame.

Stability is the prime consideration with sport. Wearing soft contact lenses will give virtually no risk of loss from the eye, even with contact sports and able to give consistent vision despite rapid eye movements. For serious sporting use where optimum acuity is required, toric soft contact lenses are often preferable, even to correct a small degree of astigmatism. The main disadvantage is lens dehydration.

Specific application;

Swimming

Contact lenses are not recommended for swimming unless well-fitted goggles are worn.  Soft contact lenses, if used carefully, have been worn fairly successfully. Some patients are very sensitive to chlorine absorbed by the lenses and may show conjunctival injection after several hours after exposure. This can even occur when lenses have been removed during swimming, but replaced before the chlorine has been eliminated from the eyes.

It should also be remember that swimming pools are a frequent source of ocular infection, and micro-organisms such as Acanthamoeba may be unaffected by chlorine disinfection.

Diving

Good results have been obtained with various water content soft lenses when used for scuba diving, with little risk of displacement. Air bubbles tend to form beneath lenses at depths of about 150ft (45m).

Skiing

Most forms of contact lens prove very successful for skiing. It is essential to use either goggles or large sunglasses to give protection from wind and cold and prevent soft lens dehydration.

Climbing at high altitude

High oxygen transmissibility soft lenses should be used because of the reduced level of oxygen in the atmosphere at high altitude. Extended wear may be well preferred to avoid cold weather difficulties with both handling and solutions.

Soft Contact Lens Fitting

Soft contact lens fitting characteristics are essential for a correctly fitting contact lens to give complete corneal coverage with proper centration to avoid the risk of contact lens complication. Soft contact lens fitting can be assessed in relation to lens movement with: (more…)
