Eyes? it’s the sensitive part of my body, that I am always focusing to take care of. I have been wearing glasses since primary school, while every other teenager glamming up and wearing the latest trendy outfit. I remember my first glasses is Disney glasses and I love them so much. During that time, wearing glasses will look like a nerd. There is nothing like ‘looking like a Korean’ at all. Now there are so many cute glasses design that is fashionable and trending. I even bought 2 pairs of them because the price is so cheap.
My eyes have been diagnosed with astigmatism. My eyes diameter is bigger than the average person’s. The first person who noticed my eyes is my sister and the new eye doctor. My eyes often suffer from dryness and irritation, the cause is not having enough rest, when I feel so restless, I am unable to close my eyes. Most people will suffer this kind of irritation.
When I first arrive in Singapore, I suffer from red eyes for 3 days straight even after went to the general doctor and given eyes drop, which can only be cured by having enough rest.
My astigmatism is 1000 degrees that could potentially risk suffering from Glaucoma. If you are Asian especially a Chinese female, this kind of eye problem will be prone to us, but my brother suffered from this glaucoma with his having very low astimatigsm degree. The doctor said it is a hereditary eye problem, so you may want to recheck if your family has this kind of problem, since curing glaucoma eyes will need a loaded amount of money, and you can only do surgery 2 times.
WHAT PRODUCT I USE TO CARING FOR MY EYES PROBLEM?
I have been using this brand for a year now. I love how comfy this brand is. It feels like I don’t even wear contact lenses. Also, this lessens the chances of my eyes suffer irritation. I bought a lot of these lenses since the expiration date is 3 years. So, I supply for 2 years. Acuvue has a lot of series, and this one is serving those who suffer from astigmatism and have different Y-axis and X-axis. It also has better H2O, some people feel that lower H2O keeps comfort in the eyes but for me, I prefer a high H2o percentage. Each one of us has a different eye condition, so pick one that makes your eyes comfortable. Just for your information that this brand is under Johson & Johson. My family uses this brand for contact lens, my mom uses a daily lens while I and my sister use monthly Acuvue Vita. The doctor recommends me to use a daily contact lens but it is way to expensive therefore I bought this instead and regularly change it whenever I feel the lenses are drying my eyes. That’s the sign of lens expiration. If you wear colored contact lenses, you need to throw the lenses away when your eyes suffering from irritation.
I found out about this brand when visiting Switzerland pharmaceuticals, I read through the ingredients and ask the pharmacist. She recommends using this brand because this gives moisture to the lenses overnight. Moist in this case is hyaluronic for lenses. This water lenses solution a little bit pricey than other brands but it is really worth it. The size is also smaller than the average water lens solution. It cost about S$40 – S$60 and it is so rare to have a sale. This one is made of Switzerland while most of the water lens solution is made in German.
I prefer REPLENISH instead of PURE MOIST since it provided my eyes with comfort while PURE MOIST works like COMPLETE multi-purposes solution just 10% better to provide moisturizer. My eyes need more than just 10% to be able to not suffer from dryness and irritation. So I recommend for you to try out this one instead, if you often wear contact lenses, especially colored contact lens that will get your eyes even dry
This is better than the average water lens solution. The price is not even expensive. I recommend this if you are just using contact lens for fun instead of wearing them daily as I do. My key to picking all of the product is Made in Switzerland because they have a better medical product and the only country where you can cure your glaucoma. So, most of the medical brand that I tried from Switzerland work the best.
Lastly is an eye drop, I always use eye drop whenever I put on the contact lenses. I drop it in my eyes then wear the contact lens to keep my eyes fresh. I took some time to rest my eyes whenever I am at home and mostly going out to a nearby store wearing glasses. My glasses is pretty heavy even the optic already make it thinner and made of plastic, that’s the suffering of astigmatism person with high degree
EXPERIENCE BLUE LIGHT FILTER IN GLASSES.
I never believe about blue filter glasses but then I try on the blue filter glasses from OWNDAYS. I use bought 2 pair of glasses from the optic, and request one of the glasses to be add blue filter since I work mostly in front of the computer.
My eyes often tired because the laptop that I use is an old SONY VAIO, with the gifted mouse. The company sucks and that’s why I left. I like to wear blue filter glasses because it help me not to feel too tired when seeing a smartphone screen or laptop.
Blue filter affect my astimatism eyes, in the point that I cannot even see when the screen too bright and most of the time, I feel very tired and sleepy but I cannot sleep, then I use the glasses. So often time, I wear glasses from monday to Thursday while Friday and Saturday I wear contact lens. While at home, I always use regular glasses.
To me who have very high degree of astigmatism feel the different while my sister do not feel any different wearing the glasses. I feel also that it is better to eat healthy food for eyes. Such as chinese herb – RED SEED or best populary as GOJI berry. As shown in the picture below:
This one could help to improve the healthy eyes. It also comes in dry snack and it is really really good to eat this while working infront of the laptop.
