As with other forms of eyewear, contact lenses are continually re-engineered and redeveloped to offer more comfort for wearers, with the most recent innovation coming from Ciba Vision/Alcon.

In technical terms, this is possible through the lens’s increase in water content from 33 per cent to more than 80 per cent from core to surface. This offers the highest breathability of any daily disposable contact lens, delivering exceptional comfort that lasts through to the end of the day.

Worshipped since the dawn of civilisation, the sun symbolises life itself. Its energy is synonymous with rejuvenation, good health, beauty, and sport. The sun, however, is not without its dangers with its intense rays. It can lead to unpleasant red eyes and potentially more serious damage, even blindness. Your optometrist can advise which type of sunglasses to protect your eyes generally, or for specific sports or occupational needs. Children in particular are extremely sensitive and without protection are all the more susceptible to long term damage. The eyes of a child under the age of 10 transmit over 75 per cent of UV radiation compared to 10 per cent in adults over the age of 25. Photochromatic lenses such as Transitions are very useful. They darken when outdoors according to the light intensity, then change back to clear when indoors. Clear high impact lenses such as Airwear also provide 100 per cent UV protection, especially for active children.
