Since contact lenses gained popularity in the last few years, its affordability and accessibility has improved considerably. Nowadays contact lenses can actually be worn by just about anyone, even those with 20-20 visions. The problem now is that not everybody has the time or the inclination to regularly clean and disinfect their contact lenses after a day.
In today’s fast paced society, just about everyone is always rushing off early in the morning to either go to work or to school. Either way, at the end of the day these individuals simply do not have the time or the energy to bother with the cleaning rituals most contact lenses seem to require. Sure, disposable daily wear contacts might be a viable option. But then again, not everyone can afford purchasing a fresh box of lens frequently. So, what do these means for these busy working individuals? Do they have to revert to the old ways, wearing cumbersome spectacles? Not necessarily so.
To cater to the pressing needs of modern society for affordable and frequent replacement contact lenses, CIBA Vision came up with O2 Optix, a brand new two week disposable soft contact lenses. The material for O2 Optix includes 67% Polymer (lotrafilcon B) and 33% water content, for a healthier way to wear lenses for a full day. O2 Optix is also made with a revolutionary silicone hydrogel technology, which allows five times more oxygen to reach your eyes compare to the leading 2-week lens. With O2 Optix not only will the wearer be able to correct their eyesight problem, it will also help protect them from the signs and symptoms of corneal oxygen deficiency. Talk about killing birds with one stone!
O2 Optix contact lenses are manufactured by CIBA Vision, a global leader in the research, development and manufacturing of contact lenses as well as other lens care products. With their head office in Atlanta, Georgia, they also provide solutions suitable to the lifestyles, preferences and needs of people in over 70 countries worldwide. CIBA Vision’s line of products ranged from fun to essential, disposable to permanent, along with new eye colors and new eye treatments as well.
Although CIBA Vision’s O2 Optix is developed to generally meet any individuals’ vision care needs, it is still advisable to visit your eye doctor in order to determine if the product is indeed suitable to your needs. Keep in mind that using incorrect lenses may cause damage to your eyesight.
CIBA Vision’s o2 Optix is still, in essence a contact lens. Thus, proper lens care is still required though probably not the long and intricate rituals those other contact lenses entails. Whenever you purchase contact lenses, it is customary for an eyecare professional or at least a store member to teach you the proper way of cleaning, disinfecting as well as storing and replacing your contacts. As long as you follow their directions there is no need for worry.
