COMMON MYTHS AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS
1-day VS 2-week
1-day disposable contact lenses are great if you prefer to avoid maintenance and often engage in outdoor activities. It is an easy and convenient option, especially for those with busy schedules. However, in certain situation, such as high power astigmatism, 2-week lenses could be a better choice. It's important to understand your needs before making a purchase.
Moisture Content & Oxygen Permeability: The higher, the better?
Many people think that higher water content makes a better lens, but this is actually a misunderstanding. In fact, the higher the water content, the more moisture the lens will be needed from the eye’s surface, and prolonged use may lead to dry eyes. For health concern and all-day comfort, oxygen permeability is an important factor.
Soft vs Firm
Softer lens is more comfortable, but it might be difficult for beginners to insert and remove. Firmer lens is easier for those new to contact lenses wearer.
MOIST VS OASYS
For those who look at digital screens all day, OASYS is more suitable and effective at reducing dryness.2 However, if you are looking for a softer, moister lens, or if you have presbyopia, MOIST would be a better option.
