For decades, contact lenses have been a great option for people who need glasses but don’t want to wear them for one reason or another. That doesn’t mean contact lenses are perfect, though. Remembering to take them out each night can be troublesome for some folks, and putting them in each morning can be a hassle. But their small downsides haven’t stopped brands from manufacturing them and improving contact lens technology over the years.
One of the newest types of contact lenses in Cape Cod, MA is the Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology. This new contact lens is one of the most advanced products on the market, and can drastically improve the quality of life for people who have typically worn traditional contact lenses or eyeglasses.
Patients suffering from astigmatism have problems with their retina and have blurry vision at near distances, far distances or even both. It’s usually caused by a misshaped cornea; instead of being round like a baseball, patients with astigmatism have a cornea that looks more like a football.
Over time, uncorrected astigmatism will cause eyestrain and headaches. Thankfully, astigmatism can be corrected rather easily with prescription eyeglasses, or with contact lenses in Cape Cod, MA. Properly prescribed eyewear should correct astigmatism almost immediately. If that doesn’t work, patients can elect to have surgery that’ll take care of the problem once and for all.
Luckily, Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology has been proven to correct astigmatism better than other leading brands, so there’s no need to go through dangerous surgery. Here are a few other things you need to know about Acuvue’s latest product:
- They help tired eyes: A study conducted by Acuvue found that 78 percent of patients suffer from tired eyes after a long day of staring at computer screens or tablets. Patients claimed that at the end of a long day, it felt like their eyes were trying to lift weights when opening and closing them. Imagine how frustrating that would be! These new lenses help relieve that feeling by providing superior comfort all day long. The HydraLuxe Technology works with the eye and makes it feel like the contact lens isn’t there at all.
- They work in changing environments: Most of us don’t sit in the same type of light all day long. Even if we’re in the office for eight hours under fluorescent lights, we still have to get to and from work. Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology lenses are proven to work everywhere we go during the day, without wearing down.
- They’re disposable: At the end of a long day, there’s no need to search for your contact lens solution or fumble around trying to open your contact lens case. Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology lenses can be tossed right in the trash can! You’ll receive a 90-day pack of disposable lenses each time you need to renew your prescription.
