Eye fatigue occurs as a result of excessive effort of the eye and leads to dry eyes, headaches and slight vision problems. Often the result of excessive eye strain is partly due to screens, environmental pollution and stress. Other threats to the eyes, such as UV rays, can cause problems such as cataracts, macular degeneration and retinal damage. It's important to protect your eyes, but how do you do that without wearing glasses?
That's where ACUVUE comes in. A leader in eye care for 20 years, ACUVUE is committed to providing vision care around the world. And it's succeeding: ACUVUE contact lenses are worn by more people than any other brand. Through ongoing research, ACUVUE continues to develop new processes and technologies so that everyone can enjoy sharper vision, superior comfort, and better eye health. With this in mind, the company has developed HydraLuxe technology to ensure all-day comfort.
We sat down with the Acuvue team, experts in vision and eye care, to discuss eye fatigue and UV rays, and to shed light on how their new contact lenses can make a difference.
The Acuvue Oasys 1-Day contacts are designed with HydraLuxe technology. What is this technology exactly and what are its benefits?
HydraLuxe is an exclusive technology that mimics the natural properties of tears. It helps to evenly distribute all the layers of the tear film (a protective layer that covers the surface of the eye to moisturize it). The result: all-day lubricated contact lenses for effortless blinking and superior comfort, vision and handling.
How do Oasys 1-Day contacts help with eye fatigue?
Two things to know: friction is one of the causes of discomfort; and contact lenses destabilize the tear film in your eyes, making the friction worse every time you blink. Since we blink almost 14,000 times a day, wearing contact lenses can lead to eye strain.
We wanted to solve this problem. The natural lubricating power of tears is the best defense against friction, and therefore the solution to optimize contact lenses and relieve eye strain.
What difference does Oasys 1-Day’s UV protection make?
UV exposure has been identified as a risk factor for both cataracts and and age-related macular degeneration, as well as possible short term damage to the cornea and conjunctiva. ACUVUE® Oasys 1-Day is a class 1 UV blocking material to bring extra protection to your eyes. But remember to always keep your sunglasses close!
People with eye conditions such as astigmatism often struggle with wearing contact lenses comfortably. How does Oasys 1-Day adapt to these?
Our special ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day contact lenses for ASTIGMATISM use four unique stabilization zones that work with the eyelids to hold the contact lens in place every time you blink.
The lenses naturally realign with each blink, for a quick fit and visual acuity as good as glasses. ACUVUE® contact lenses for ASTIGMATISM are as easy to adjust as our spherical contact lenses. Our technology comes with a variety of settings available to meet almost any prescription need our customers may have.
