After a long, hard winter, especially in the Texas panhandle, we all look forward to the warm days of summer – but summer also means higher UV sunlight exposure, which can be detrimental to your eye health.
Specifically, eye problems like photokeratitis, solar retinopathy, cataracts, and macular degeneration can be connected to UV light exposure. How can you reduce your UV ray intake this summer without constantly wearing glasses?
Acuvue’s New Oasys Transition Contacts
You don’t have to choose between proper eye care and summer fun just because you wear contacts. In 2019, Acuvue introduced their Oasys Transition Contacts that filter out UV light (and more) to protect your vision.
These cutting edge contacts filter and reduce bright light exposure both in the house and out of doors. They also filter out blue light and block ultraviolet light. But the most attractive feature of Acuvue’s new contact option is that it is all done automatically in a transitional manner, as needed.
You don’t want to block out too much light, even when there’s no need for it. This latest technology from Acuvue shields you from overexposure by adapting to the amount of light hitting the contacts’ surface at any particular moment.
Major benefits of Acuvue Oasys Transition contact lenses include:
- Works great both out of doors and inside the house.
- Reduces haloes/starbursts at night.
- Keeps your field of vision clear and unobstructed.
- You can drop “compensating behaviors” when in bright light.
- Your eyes are less stressed and will feel less tired at day’s end.
- The contacts are working even when they appear clear.
- Your cornea is protected from potential harm from UV light.
- Great for quick trips outdoors or can be worn in conjunction with sunglasses for additional shading.
These Contacts Can Change Your Summer!
Knowing your eyes are optimally protected from UV light and bright light, you don’t have to “tiptoe through the summer” and miss out on much of the fun. It’s much more gratifying to fully participate in a wider range of activities, such as swimming, sunning yourself on the beach, jogging, hiking, and more without taking any significant risks.
Note that Acuvue Oasys Transition contacts are not meant to be a replacement for sunglasses since sunglasses protect the eyelid and surrounding areas near the eye. However, you can wear contacts while driving, and most windshields block 100% of UV light.
