Advantages of Using Acuvue Contact Lenses
Acuvue Oasys lenses actually help keep your eyes comfortable and healthy while wearing them, due to their design that allows high oxygen transmission. Normal contact lenses don't transmit much oxygen to the eye, which can cause corneal swelling and redness among other problems after long periods of usage.
Acuvue Oasys lenses are class 1 UV-blockers according to the American Optometric Association. This means that the lenses block 90% of UVA rays and 99% of UVB rays. There is also Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism which features four points of stabilization that quickly center the lens with each blink of the eye for clear vision.
Contact Lens and Eye Care
If you're new to wearing contact lenses, it's important for the health of your eyes to make sure you're using them correctly. Here are some tips for handling and wearing your contact lenses safely.
First of all, always wash your hands with a soap that doesn't contain perfumes, lotions, or oil. Soaps with moisturizers or perfumes will leave behind a film on your hands that might irritate your eyes when you put in your contact lenses. Dry your hands with a towel that's clean and free of lint.
Insert contact lenses from the tip of your finger with the lens in the shape of a cup. If your eyes feel dry, use rewetting drops that are suitable for your contact lenses. To avoid eye infections, avoid touching the tip of the contact lens cleaning solution bottle and clean your contact lens case regularly.
Never sleep or swim while wearing your contact lenses. If you wear makeup, it's best to apply it after you put in your contact lenses, and take your lenses out before removing makeup.
Wear a wide-brim hat as well as UV blocking sunglasses while wearing contact lenses in sunny weather conditions. Additionally, only wear your contact lenses as long as prescribed. For example, if your lenses are only meant to last for two weeks, you should only wear them for two weeks.
When you begin wearing contact lenses, it's essential to follow your eye doctor's instructions and be aware of any signs of discomfort. If you feel irritation, remove your contact lenses and get in touch with your eye doctor immediately.
