Throughout the day our eyes are constantly having to adjust to light. From our screens to the sun, without us realising it, our eyes are taking strain.

But have you ever had to squint, shade your eyes or dial down screen brightness? You may be suffering from Photophobia A.K.A. light sensitivity. While a little sensitivity to light when going from relative darkness to a bright surrounding is pretty normal, a recent survey revealed that 80 percent of us are actually bothered by bright light on a daily basis. You may deal with this by hiding behind some dark shades, or you could address the problem…

In walks some high-tech contact lenses with light intelligent tech!

The experts at ACUVUE® (a world-renowned brand of contact lenses) have developed ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ — a first-of-its-kind contact lens — that goes beyond standard vision correction to address the stress caused by bothersome light. These lenses are made with a dynamic photochromic filter, which reacts to changing light conditions and adapts to provide you with all-day soothing vision.

Why these lenses are super impressive

Backed by more than 10 years of research and development, these contacts were developed and designed in partnership with Transitions Optical Limited to manage a wide range of lighting conditions. Whether you’re in the office, taking the dogs for a stroll, hitting the gym or a night club, this contact lens’ intelligent light technology filters blue light, reduces exposure to bright light and blocks UV rays. The result: a reduction of squinting by 38 percent on average.  Plus, you’ll cut down the time it takes to recover from exposure to bright light by up to five seconds. At night, these lenses also reduce starbursts and halos around bright lights, giving you a clear view with less squinting. They’re so cool ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ were also named one of Time’s ‘Best Inventions of 2018′.
