Contact Lens Technology Update

The last few years have provided us with an array of new contact lenses and if you are in an older lens it might be time for an update into new technology. Acuvue advanced contact lenses with their unique product Acuvue Oasys with Transitions. This lens will darken when outdoors and lighten when indoors similar to the Transition eyeglasses. This technology was recognized by the TIME best inventions of 2018. Cosmetically, the lenses do darken the colour of the eye while maintaining a natural appearance. These lenses would be ideal for sunny sports such as football, soccer, and baseball where wearing sunglasses is not always an option. They are also a healthy option as they filter blue light and block harmful UV rays. Book a contact lens consultation at Nuvue Optometry today and see how Acuvue Oasys with Transitions seamlessly adapts to balance the amount of indoor and outdoor light entering the eye.

The monthly lens market saw a few new additions in the Acuvue Vita and B&L Ultra lenses. Both of these silicone hydrogels have great moisture to improve comfort while maintaining the health benefits a high oxygen permeability. The daily market is very competitive with some of the most comfortable lenses on the market. Some of the newer dailies like Dailies Total One and Oasys One Day are fantastic.
