Why I choose contact lenses over glasses? First, I just prefer the way I look in contacts. I am very comfortable and more confident with wearing contact lenses during the day (tho' in the early days, inserting contact lenses onto my eyes could be quite painful and dramatic). Second, if I wear contact lenses I can put on my make-up and my eye make-up definitely shows better this way, doesn't it? If I have my contact lenses on me, I can also wear stylish sunglasses when travelling or sightseeing on a sunny day. Moreover, I just love the freedom and convenience provided by contact lenses instead of glasses. I can literally do about my daily activities without any hassle and am equally active to those lucky people who don't require any eye correction hence no need wear any glasses.
My parents were my sole sponsor when it came to buying my contact lenses during my younger days. Contact lenses were a bit on the expensive side and required extra budget so when I was in high-school so I bought the yearly contact lenses to save my parents' money. In my university years, I bought the yearly coloured contacts and changed my contact lenses' colour every year. Trends change, do they? I've tried hazel, green and grey contacts thus far. A chubby Chinese girl sporting coloured hair with green eyes. How cool was that? Now I feel that I must have looked so peculiar during those years but coloured contacts were so booming around the year of 2002-2006! The only contacts' colour that I constantly avoided was purple because it was too funky for me and I didn't think purple eyes would be suitable for my oriental face.
Once I graduated from university, I guess I got more matured and toned down a lot with my coloured contacts. Thus, I opted clear (no colour) contacts to wear, until to date. I have also switched from using yearly contact lenses to monthly contacts because I think monthly disposable contact lenses are much healthier to the cornea. The moment I got my own job, I retired my parents as my contact lenses provider; so yes, I have been buying the monthly disposables for many years now.
Recently, I was introduced to CooperVision, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of contact lenses and their products are sold in over 100 countries around the world. CooperVision works really hard to develop an incomparable array of lenses that will brighten our life every day. They make the widest range of
lenses in the industry - multifocal, daily, or toric lenses! CooperVision has extensive line of contact lens products to fit every prescription, every personality and every lifestyle.
My 30-days trial of CooperVision Biomedics® 1 Day Extra.
As part of the introduction, I was given the 30-days trial of CooperVision Biomedics® 1 Day Extra, daily contact lenses which are designed to deliver the most natural, comfortable lens wearing experience. What do I feel about these lenses? I love them and am daily contacts convert now!
Putting on my CooperVision Contact Lens.
CooperVision Biomedics® 1 Day Extra's 55% water content ensures excellent comfort on my eyes and their comforts wear last for up to 11 hours! Also, I feel so much healthier wearing daily disposable contact lenses than the monthly or yearly contacts. Why? Because replacing your lenses everyday regularly helps to promote good eye health. Also, daily contact lenses apparently also reduce the effects of allergies as allergens have less time to build up on daily lenses.
On another note, another convenience that we gain from wearing daily contact lenses is that we don't need to deal with cleaning and storage hassles of conventional contact lenses. Just put a pair of brand new daily contact lenses on our eyes in the morning and dispose them by night before going to bed. Do the same tomorrow morning! No need to buy the contact lens solutions now. And ka-ching!... Another $$ savings! By the way, this paragraph reminds me of my last trip to Indonesia when I actually forgot to pack my contact lens solution and case with me. My parents' house didn't have any of those and I got panic because I had no idea how I was going to keep my brand new contact lenses for the night without the solutions and the case. Not to mention that I can't function without wearing my monthly contact lenses should they dry up overnight. As such, after long winding trip to reach my home town, later that night, we still had to go to the mall in town which shops were about to close already. We circled the whole mall with tired legs and all just to find one optic centre that sold contact lens solutions! Good thing we found one and they gave me a contact lens case as a bonus.
Ready to start my day with brighter vision.
Now, we all know why daily disposables are in general better for us, right?
