When I saw that ACUVUE® had launched its first-ever monthly contact lenses (which is also suitable for those with astigmatism!), my interest was piqued. As someone with eyes drier than her love life, I dreaded wearing contact lenses. But since the ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses claim to be more comfortable than any other leading monthly contact lenses, I decided to give them a go. Here’s my full review after weeks of wear.
The most comfortable contact lens I’ve tried so far
My relationship with contact lenses goes way back to a few years ago, as I bought my first pair of monthly contact lenses when I was studying in polytechnic. I remember wearing them to school only during the first half of the week and then ditching them entirely later in the week because they were so uncomfortable and my vision was always blurry. Because of that, I didn’t wear them to school unless I had events to attend and I wanted to look presentable, or when I was working out as it is more convenient with contact lenses on.
Given how I didn’t exactly have a favourable experience wearing monthly contact lenses, I was initially skeptical about ACUVUE® VITA® monthly contact lenses. However, when I first tried them on, I instantly noticed how comfortable the fit was. During my first week of wearing them, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my vision was still sharp and clear throughout the entire day. Sometimes, I would even forget that I was wearing contact lenses, thanks to the HydraMax™ Technology, which helps to maintain and maximise hydration. I feel that my vision has been transformed and I could study for hours with no discomfort, so that’s definitely a plus point!
Feeling more assured by my experience in the first week, I started wearing the ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses more often, even when I’m attending online lectures and for online fitness classes. I loved going for hot yoga classes before the new normal, but when I used to wear my previous brand of contact lenses, my vision would tend to get really blurry because of how heated the class gets. Once, I even got a major headache because of my affected vision but wearing glasses simply is not an option as they tend to slide off my face after a while!
I was relieved to find that I didn’t experience any discomfort with the ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses during hot yoga—in fact, these ACUVUE® monthlies worked even better than my old ones. My vision was sharp and clear throughout the entire session and my eyes still feel comfortable. Now, I use these contact lenses at home when I’m doing yoga and my previous issues with dry eyes have not resurfaced! Thanks to the contact lenses, my eyes are always hydrated, and I no longer see the need to depend on eyedrops anymore.
Ever since I tried ACUVUE® VITA®, I observed a change in my lifestyle, especially when it came to working out. I started working out more as I can now exercise freely without the fear of my glasses falling off my face or risking that terrible headache with my previous pair of contact lenses. Getting through lessons is now a breeze with ACUVUE® VITA® as they provide me with clear and comfortable vision all day. I am able to focus 100% on the online lecture without worrying that my vision might become blurry due to dry eyes!
Bonus: Highest UV protection
I’m also quite impressed by ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses’ UV protection capabilities. Fun fact: it has the highest level of UV protection* amongst the different brands of monthly contact lenses! Tutorial lessons are still done offline in this new normal, so I am often exposed to the sun as I walk around the campus to get to classes or even when I’m sitting near the window for online lectures in my student dormitory. It’s reassuring to know that my eyes are well-protected from the damaging UV rays with the ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses.
No more halos or starbursts caused by astigmatism
Double vision in one eye? Then there’s a chance that you might have uncorrected astigmatism. Go get your eyes checked, and fret not, there’s the ACUVUE® VITA® for Astigmatism contact lenses which will provide you with clear, sharp and stable vision all month long. You no longer have to worry about experiencing halos or starbursts at night, or having that annoying blurry vision when looking at your phone or laptop. Goodbye headaches and blurry vision!
Want to try the ACUVUE® VITA® contact lenses for yourself?
Seriously, give it a go! Take it from someone like me, who really dreaded wearing contact lenses because of how dry my eyes are. But now, with ACUVUE® VITA®, my eyes are hydrated and comfortable all month long and I no longer have to carry my eyedrops out with me. It has brought so much convenience to my daily life, and the assurance that my vision will always stay clear and comfortable.
To ensure that you are properly fitted for the contact lenses, get your eyes thoroughly checked at an optical store! I had a comprehensive eye check and contact lens fitting at Premium Eyecare at Funan Mall. The optometrist told me that the curvature for my right eye lens was higher than my left lens, which affects how the lens will sit on my eye. From this experience, I’ve learned that it’s so important to have a proper contact lens fitting with a qualified optometrist so that I can have a professional recommend the most suitable contact lens for my eyes. You definitely shouldn’t be purchasing contact lenses online.
