Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Discovering DAILIES® Aqua Comfort® Plus Toric Contact Lenses

10.15.2014

suffering headaches and blurred visions due to astigmatism

When I was 6 years old, the headache monster constantly hunted me. I didn't know why and my parents started to get worried. My mom brought me to the Optician for an eye check and they found out that I have astigmatism. At that age, all I know was "YES! I'm getting a spectacle to wear!" like it's some kind of toy. The novelty effect lasted for a while (got bored of wearing) and I didn't wear my spectacles again until Form 3, when my vision started to deteriorate and the black board looked blurred. Astigmatism can be corrected but at a young age I didn't know the importance of it until it was too late (now I doomed to wear spectacles forever).

What's Astigmatism?
Astigmatism causes blurred vision, headaches, and difficulty with fine detail due to the shape of their cornea or lens in the eye. Symptoms of astigmatism include eyestrain and headaches, especially after reading.

I experimented with contact lens to avoid wearing spectacles but finding toric contact lens is hard (more often limited). The headaches becomes more severe when I wear contact lens without toric. Last week, I attended the launch of DAILIES® Aqua Comfort® Plus Toric contact lenses by Alcon, the global leader in eye care and second largest division of Novartis. I was curious and excited to learn more about it's Blink-activated Moisture Technology. Apparently with each blink, moisture is release from the lens to give your eyes the long lasting comfort with crisp, clear vision until the end of the day.

Now when it comes to contact lens, I prefer dailies to monthly. Reason being is I need the convenience when it comes to lens care. Using dailies are pretty much fussed free and easy to use. Put them on, remove by end of the day and throw away. I don’t need to worry about eye infections or sleeping with them on. Perfect for girls on the go like myself. 

with Blink-activated Moisture Technology! No more dry, itchy eyes 

What more with the introduction of DAILIES® Aqua Comfort® Plus Toric contact lenses for patients with astigmatism, I don’t need to take paracetamol (pain killers) whenever I wear contact lens for photo-shooting or special functions.

Here's the key advantages of DAILIES® Aqua Comfort® Plus Toric contact lenses:
  • For those suffering from astigmatism
  • Blink-activated Moisture Technology
  • Convenient and comfortable vision correction
  • Daily Disposable - easy & worry free
  • Lenses feature Precision Curve lens design for better fit
The Precision Curve lens design is where the lens utilizes the blinking pressure of the upper and lower eyelids to maintain lens stability therefore providing stable vision and comfort. 

can’t wait to try on my first contact lens for astigmatism!

My verdict: I got samples of the contact lens to have a feel and guess what? The lens is so soft and jelly like. I didn’t try it on yet, will have to wait until I collect them to review. There are markings on the lens, which indicates the correct way to put them on. The markings cannot be seen by the naked eye so don’t worry about it.

  2. Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. Refraction is the bending of light as it passes through one object to another. Vision occurs when light rays are bent (refracted) as they pass through the cornea and the lens. The light is then focused on the retina. The retina converts the light-rays into messages that are sent through the optic nerve to the brain. The brain interprets these messages into the images we see. Astigmatism can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or Lasik Treatment For Astigmatism. Individual lifestyles affect the way astigmatism is treated.Your eye care professional can help you decide if surgery is an option for you. Thanks
