People always say that work life is harder than the life as a student. I got to agree with that.
Out in the working society, it is never easy especially dealing with the demanding work schedule and frequent overtime. Not to mention that in office environment, we are constantly exposed to strong air-conditioning and screen glare from digital screens. With this kind of demanding lifestyle and harsh environment, this has caused my eyes to feel dry and tired easily.
I’ve been a contact lens user for about 11 years now. Initially I started out with monthly hard lens to soft lens and later on jump into the colour lens bandwagon to dailies lenses. Truth be told, I do not wear contact lenses to work due to my eyes constantly feeling dry and uncomfortable halfway through the day and the need to rely on eyedrops. The days where I’ll be wearing contact lens would be during the weekends or when I’m on holiday. However, I’ve experienced extreme dryness while wearing contact lens when I’m in Bangkok as my contact lens wasn’t high in moisture.
So recently, I went to Paris Miki located at level 3 of Bugis Junction to try out the ACUVUE® Experience Centre (AEC) and also to get my first ACUVUE® contact lens fitting experience as well as getting my hands on the new ACUVUE® OASYS® 1-Day contact lens.
When I entered the store, I was met with my Eye Care Professional (ECP), Estelle, who ran a comprehensive eye health check and a personalized consultation to understand my lifestyle and vision correction needs.
Estelle was very patient with me throughout the whole consultation process of understanding my needs in lenses and introducing me to a series of ACUVUE® lenses. After which, I was being led to a room where Estelle took a closer look at my eye cornea as well as doing a UV test to make sure there are no signs of UV damage.
Next, Estelle proceeded to have my eye sight tested as I’ve mentioned to her during the consultation that I’ve not gotten my eye sight tested for awhile now since years ago. Thankfully, the degree in both eyes has not changed much.
After the eye health check was completed, Estelle proceeded with the contact lens fitting where I was given different contact lens sizes to try on and have my eyes tested again. The whole process of the eye exam and lens fitting takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
ACUVUE® Oasys® 1-Day with Hydraluxe™ is a Tear Infused Design that integrates with and supports the tear film for outstanding comfort and minimizes the feeling of tiredness. Besides the moisture level, ACUVUE® Oasys® 1-Day is made of hydrated silicone; a highly breathable material, for comfort and to ensure the cornea health.
Besides getting my hands on the new ACUVUE® OASYS® 1-Day contact lens, I also got myself a box of 1-Day ACUVUE® Define™ in Vivid Style as during the consultation, I’ve mentioned that currently I’m using another brand of 1-day coloured lenses. This lens is recommended by Estelle as the design and colour is somewhat quite similar to what I’m having.
So after having my eyes health checked and getting my hands on these lenses, I went about my day to Savour 2016 with my love and friends till late night while wearing the ACUVUE® Oasys® 1-Day lens which was given to me while doing the contact lens fitting. #seemyworld
I’m very surprised that my eyes are not dry and do not feel any discomfort. It feels as if I’m not wearing any lenses at all. This is definitely an #achievementunlocked!
