Like when you want to enjoy your hot food, but the steam condenses and annoyingly clouds up your lenses so you basically see nothing.

So we took the challenge to wear contact lenses... for the FIRST time (or first time in a long time for some of us)!

Before that, it is really important to get well-fitting contact lenses, so we got our eyes checked first - that includes cornea measurements, prescription power, tear film evaluation and of course, eye surface and contact lens fit evaluation for the right fit!

WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.
