5 top contact lenses to consider
Contact lenses have evolved. Initially, they were meant only for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or some other type of vision impairment. They could do what glasses did, only in a more sophisticated and appealing way. Today, however, contact lenses can be used by anyone to enhance their vision or just for fashion.
Regardless, here’s a definitive list featuring the best contact lenses of 2021 that you can buy today.
Biotrue ONEday contact lens
This lens by Bausch & Lomb is an excellent choice if you put in long screen hours. It comes with Surface Active Technology that keeps your eyes 98% moisturized for up to 16 hours a day. This prevents itching and reduces the risk of long-term vision loss. Thanks to its unique peri-ballast design, the lens is a great option for patients with astigmatism.
Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus contact lenses
Comfort is a big thing when it comes to contact lenses. The Acuvue Oasys, which was released in 2005, doesn’t just lay great emphasis on comfort but delivers as well. In 20 clinical studies, seven out of 10 patients said that the Acuvue Oasys was the most comfortable contact lens they had ever worn! It works on the patented Hydraclear Plus that makes you feel like you’ve just put the lenses on even after hours.
This lens is made by Alcon, a Geneva-based American-Swiss company. After various studies, Alcon concluded that poor vision, poor comfort, and handling issues trigger users into switching lenses. Precision1 addresses these problems, with nine out of 10 patients in a trial reporting that the lens was comfortable, corrected vision, and was easy to handle.
Dailies AquaComfort Plus
Another one of the best contact lenses of 2021 is the Dailies AquaComfort Plus. The AquaComfort PLUS technology used in this lens releases a moisturizing agent every time you blink. It keeps your eyes hydrated, keeps the lens in position, and prevents itching. The lens is made from nelfilcon A (31% polymer) and has a 69% water content.
FreshLook One Day Contacts
Disposable lenses don’t come any better than the FreshLook One Day Contacts. Like Dailies AquaComfort Plus, this lens also has 69% water content and is made from nelfilcon A (31% polymer). It boasts a three-in-one technology that mixes three colors into one, giving your eyes a natural color. There are multiple color options, enabling you to change it whenever you want.
