Thus you can choose the appropriate contact lens needs. For example, for the style can wear colored contact lenses, or for working more than 10 hours at the computer. Moreover, to prevent pain and soreness in the nose area, where used glasses.
Unfortunately, still not many people want to use contact lenses. Explained by Lanny Surachman, one representative of Ciba Vision, from research conducted by Ciba Vision, on the user's eyeglasses are reluctant to use contact lenses because of the comfort factor. Of the respondents who numbered approximately 250 respondents in the United States, as many as 47 percent never wear contact lenses, but no longer use it because of the comfort complaints. As many as 76 percent of all respondents wanted a comfortable contact lenses and can be used from morning to night.

Danny explained, that daily contact lens product has a Triple-Action Moisture content, which provides three advantages when used. The first is for lubrication (bearing lubrication between the eyes and contact lenses), then moisturize, and refresh all day long. The new technology was first used in the world has a moisturizer that can be activated each time the eyes in the Blink. Available for the lens size to -0.5 D-10D in the counter-counter glasses, with the price of Rp 275,000, - per 30 pairs (for 15 times usage). This product also answered the desire of the respondents mentioned at the beginning, that this contact lens is effectively used for 24 hours.

Danny says, a common mistake often made by users of contact lenses is one treatment and abuse. First, it is used constantly but not treated. Every day, our eyes remove dirt, whether it be protein, lipid, or dust. Contact lenses have a certain staying power, can not hold much dirt, so regular cleaning maintenance is required (especially for weekly or monthly contact lenses). Secondly, abuse, in the sense if not used according to specified rules. For example, using contact lenses worn daily but more than a day (or time recommended), so it will not work properly anymore.
