7 Best Contact Lenses in Singapore | Best of Lifestyle Singapore 2021

It’s hard to appreciate the beauty of the world and enjoy life if everything is blurry. Although you can use eyeglasses to see things clearly, spectacles can only give you a limited clear view as it does not cover your peripherals and blocks your vision when it fogs. While contact lenses can give you a wider clear view, it is also difficult to find one that would fit your sight needs and gives you comfort while wearing as well. With an extensive variety of contact lenses in the market, which then is the best contact lens in Singapore? In our Best of Home series, we introduce the 7 Best Contact Lens in Singapore, providing quality recommendations based on your lifestyle and budget needs.

Ideal for beginners

Soflens® 38 is a soft contact lens. It is made from a hydrogel called Polymacon A that has 38.6% of water content on it. It keeps the lenses hydrated for comfortable daily usage. What we love about this lens is that it is not only soft but also thin and lightweight which makes it easier to insert into your eyes. Furthermore, the thinness helps the oxygen flow towards the lens to avoid dryness and discomfort on your eyes. For the first-timers, it is best to try a contact lens that is soft and comfortable to wear yet cheaper than other similar brands.

Easy insertion and removal

One thing that other contact lenses do not have is the visible tint and inversion indicator. The light blue visible tint helps you to effortlessly find the contact lens in the solution. While the inversion indicator tells you if the lens is inverted and not yet ready for insertion. Likewise, the thinness of the lens also helps in the easy insertion. On the other hand, the mid-peripheral area of the lens is a bit thicker than the central area to keep the lens from moving out of its place while applying or removing it.

Comfortable to wear

The hydrogel material on the Soflens® 38 helps repel the debris on the lens for more comfort and lesser rubbing of the eyes. It is so thin in the centre to allow more oxygen to flow to avoid dryness and redness of the eyes. You can also wear them for extended days of up to 7 days, depending on your optician’s advice.

2. Acuvue® Oasys for Astigmatism with HydraClear® Plus

Ideal for people with astigmatism

Most people with astigmatism wear glasses because the irregular curve of their eyes makes it difficult to find contact lenses for them. But the BLINK STABILIZED® technology on the Acuvue® Oasys for Astigmatism helps to adapt to the curvature of your eyes with every blink preventing the lens from losing its place. If astigmatism comes along with near-sightedness or far-sightedness, you can custom the lens to fit your vision needs. It can be worn for up to two weeks. But if you are planning to wear this for a day, Acuvue® 1-Day Oasys with HydraLuxe™ is an alternative.

Maximum eye protection

This contact lens blocks UV and blue rays which makes it perfect for people with astigmatism who love the outdoors or are heavy gadget-users as well. Backed up with the HYDRACLEAR® PLUS technology that has tear-like properties, your lens can retain its moisture to avoid dryness of the eye.

Money-back guarantee

Still not satisfied with your Acuvue® Oasys? They offer a 90-day money-back guarantee. This assures you that you’ll definitely not regret buying it because it meets your expectations and vision needs.

Ideal for extended wear

If you are forgetful or have a busy schedule, this contact lens is for you because you won’t need to remove it before sleeping. The material is so breathable that it allows you to wear it all day and night. And of course, we love the idea that you can sleep on it without worrying that your eyes would be damaged. We still need that clear vision whenever we wake up in the middle of the night, right? In addition, you can wear it for up to 30 days without removal. But it is still best to discuss this with your optician. Alcon® Air Optix Aqua is a cheaper option but lasts up to 6 days and nights of extended use only.

Breathable and irritation-free

Air Optix Night & Day® Aqua’s Superior Surface Technology helps to keep the irritants like debris and lipids at bay. It also allows more oxygen flow than ordinary contact lenses, so your eyes would not dry up and irritate. In fact, it is 6x more breathable than the regular soft lenses in the market.

We absolutely love the comfort it brings to the eyes because of its Aquaform® Technology. It retains water and allows continuous oxygen flow to avoid dryness of the eyes. Even in an airconditioned room, it will not dry up your eyes, maintaining its healthy and white colour. Moreover, the lens is soft and has round edges, so you will not feel the friction once you blink or move your eyeballs. It also has an Aberration Neutralizing System™ that facilitates the improvement of vision by lessening the optical imperfection. And similar to Alcon® Air Optix Aqua, it can be worn for up to 6 days and nights in a row.

5. Bausch & Lomb ULTRA® with MoistureSeal® Technology

If your eyes are so sensitive, you will definitely love this. B & L ULTRA® has MoistureSeal® Technology that preserves up to 95% of lens moisture for up to 16 hours of wearing it. It has a water-loving molecule to keep your eyes always hydrated and avoid tiredness even after looking at electronic gadgets and screens for hours and not blinking frequently. It has an exclusive solution that is low in preservatives to still keep your eyes healthy. Another feature that we love is the visible tint that can help you find your lens when it is submerged to its very own contact lens solution.

If you hate having a cleaning solution with you, then Biomedics might be the answer for you! Created for daily disposal, after wearing it the whole day, you won’t need to soak it on any lens solution. You won’t be wearing it the next day, anyway. Travelling via plane? This is a convenient option for people who need to travel via aeroplane, as it is lightweight and they do not have to bring a contact lens case and solution. Moreover, its slim and lightweight design makes the wearers feel as if they are not wearing any contact lens at all. It has UV protection and can retain 55% of water content, making it ideal for outdoors too.

Do you want “eye-catching” eyes while having a clear vision? This multi-purpose contact lens keeps your eyes good-looking and gives you clear eyesight. However, this is not exactly a coloured contact lens that you might be looking for. It rather accentuates or blends with your natural eye colour to highlight its beauty. Acuvue® 1-Day Define® has 7 designs to choose from to match your natural “eye-look” that you are aiming for. Visit their site so you can better see which better fits your Asian eye. And while it serves an aesthetic purpose, it still gives protection and comfort to your eyes. It has high UV protection that blocks most of the UV sun rays. And with the Lacreon® Technology, dryness and discomfort of the eyes can be avoided as it acts as a natural tear to keep the lens moist.
