Tiis ganda no more: These new contact lenses promise everyday comfort

“Tiis ganda” may be a common experience but it doesn't always ring true. Beauty can go hand-in-hand with comfort, and style can fit well with practicality. For eyeglass wearers, there are many chic design options available and you can even tailor your makeup to work with your specs. But there are occasions when that great pair of prescription glasses just aren’t convenient to use, like when attending special events or doing sports. That’s when contact lenses come to the rescue!

Even non-eyeglass wearers have been popping on colored contact lenses to add enhance FOTDs and OOTDs. Whether worn out of necessity or as an accessory, it's important for contact lenses to be comfortable and hygienic. Our eyes are very delicate, after all, and a bad pair of lenses can lead to eye strain, scratches, or even a nasty infection! Alcon Dailies AquaComfort Plus offers the perfect solution for making sure that your eyes stay free of irritations.

During the media event for AquaComfort Plus, TV host and volleyball player Gretchen Ho shared how wearing contacts are important for her athletic career as well her on-the-go lifestyle of constant travel as a sports correspondent. From a mother’s perspective, actress Dimples Romana felt that it was a smart choice to allow her teen daughter, Callie, to start wearing Dailies. Callie plays tennis regularly, and having glasses proved to be distracting as she had to regularly adjust them to stay on. Any pair of contact lenses would offer that same freedom of movement though, so what makes the AquaComfort Plus different from regular lenses?

I've been testing out Dailies and I can attest to how pleasant they are to have on. These contacts are so weightless, I can actually forget that I'm wearing them! That amazing comfort level has a lot to do with the blink-activated moisture technology and multiple moisturizing agents. Compared to other lenses I've tried before, I found the material for Alcon Dailies to be noticeably thinner by comparison.

At P1,495 for a box of 30 contacts (15 pairs), it's also a practical and cost-effective option, especially for those who prefer to wear contacts part-time. Since you open each blister pack upon immediate use, the rest of the stock stays fresh. This significantly reduces the risk of getting an eye infection from mishandled or improperly stored lenses, and there's no need to keep track of monthly disposal dates! At the end of the day, simply discard the used pair and just open a fresh set when needed.

AquaComfort Plus is also a good option for first-time contact lens wearers, including teenagers. As with all contact lenses, hygienic handling and responsible usage are a must. This includes starting with clean hands, using contact lens solution, careful application, and remembering to remove the contacts at the end of the day or before going to sleep. Of course, borrowing or sharing lenses are an absolute no-no!
