UV Blocker Contact Lenses: The Eye Protection that you Need

What do you usually do when protecting yourself against the sun light? It’s pretty obvious that sunblock is the ultimate shield, but did you know that it can also affect your eyes? Unfortunately, excessive exposure to sunlight can take a toll on your eyes and may lead to alarming consequences, namely sensitivity to light, cataract, and blurry vision.

You might be thinking that sunglasses can easily save you from experiencing this. While it is true that your fave sunnies is an excellent daytime accessory that may protect your eyes from sunlight exposure, a UV blocker contact lens is also an effective armor. Know the benefits of contact lenses with UV blocker and its various types.

What are UVA, UVB and UVC rays?

UVA, UVB and UVC rays are three different types of energy referred to as the ultraviolet (UV) radiation, normally seen as sunlight. Despite their ability to damage skin cells’ DNA, producing genetic defects that may lead to skin cancer, these energies still differ in some way. 

For instance, UVA is associated with skin aging, while UVC is primarily found in man-made sources, namely tanning beds and mercury lamps, which may cause skin burns if excessively exposed. UVB is also commonly linked with skin burning and the possible development of eye ailments such as cataracts, eye cancer, eye growths and photokeratitis.

What is a UV blocker contact lens?

The eye contact lens is specifically built to minimize exposure under the sunlight that eyeglasses or sunglasses can no longer shield, which can creep through the sides, hence penetrating your retina. The retina is a soft, light-sensitive layer of nervous system tissue where the light passes through.

The different types of UV blocking lenses:

Hydrogel - Contact Lenses

The EO Flexwear Hydrogel clear contact lens with one month modality and UV blocker is your ultimate protection against harmful sunlight. Its soft silicone material with 47% water content is comfortable enough, allowing your eyes to breathe, especially for long hours of contact lens wear. Hydrogel contact lenses have a thicker texture, hence making it more visible inside the container.

Vision - Contact Lenses


Vision is a disposable UV blocking clear contact lens with one month modality that provides protection against the sunlight. Vision’s soft, tinted, breathable, and easy to apply qualities make it the perfect choice for a hassle-free contact lens experience.

Adore - Contact Lenses

Flexwear Adore is more than just your typical shield, as it enhances your eyes’ natural color, giving you that irresistible charm. Available in various colors such as chestnut charm, azure, mulberry, amber, brown charm, shadow, super black, ocean, Persia, and basil. Adore is a soft contact lens with 12 month modality and a UV-blocking feature that protects the eyes against the transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into your eye.

Freshlens - Contact Lenses

Freshlens contact lenses with a six-month modality are perfectly described as “fresh eyes.” Not only do they provide UV protection for the eyes, but their soft texture and neutral colors in aqua, blue, brown, green, gray, hazel, sapphire, and violet subtly enhance the appearance of your iris. With Freshlens, you can experience comfort, protection, and beauty all in one wear, giving you a modern and youthful look.

What are the other benefits of contact lenses?

It is clear that the contact lenses will beautify your eyes, but these may also correct vision problems caused by refractive errors, and this matter occurs mainly because the eyes failed to refract and focus. Examples of these vision issues caused by refractions are Myopia, Hyperopia, Presbyopia and Astigamatism.

 

Nowadays, many people prioritize protecting their skin from harmful UV rays, but often overlook the importance of shielding their eyes. The eyes are one of the most exposed parts of the body and require maximum protection to prevent long-term damage.
