Have you ever considered wearing enhancement lenses? I have almost perfect eyesight, thanks to my LASIK operation 3 years ago. I thought I was bidding contact lenses farewell forever, but I was wrong.

Recently, I was invited by Johnson & Johnson to be an ACUVUE® DEFINE™ advocate.  Prior to that, I was curious about beauty enhancement lenses given their increasing popularity.  After all, I have seen enough bloggers and friends wearing coloured or iris enlargement lenses and could see how these helped to enhance overall looks.

I found out that the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ is the only brand of beauty enhancement contact lenses that offer UV protection. The level of protection is more than 80% UVA and 95% UVB, which is in line with internationally recognised standards. This means that the entire cornea is protected from UV rays, which complements your shades very well because the rays could still seep in from the sides of the sunglasses.

With my interest piqued, I went for a comprehensive eye examination with Ms Oh Shwu Ji, Manager and Optometrist at Specialist Eye Centre, who then confirmed that my eyes are suitable for 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ lenses.

There are three variants of lenses to choose from. The Accent style makes your eye looks distinctly enlarged and black, while the Vivid style gives a more multi-dimensional brownish hue. I selected the Natural Shine, which not only enlarged the irises, but gave my eyes a natural, softer sparkle. This is something that I could wear to the office on days when I have special events or dates in the evening!

Together with Velda and Beatrice, my journey with 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ began. We had a makeover session, a video shoot, followed by a little get-together to share our views on beauty, fashion and of course, our comments on this daily disposable enhancement lenses.

I am indeed very honoured to have the opportunity to interact with Andy Lee and he did my fabulous makeup!

I was told that the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ is specially designed for Asian eyes, and they are able to enlarge the Asian iris to about 12.8mm diameter. Do you feel that my irises are larger? Having tried the lenses for a few days, I find that these daily disposables are really soft and easy to wear, compared to my previous experiences with monthlies. The enhancement effect is evident but subtle as friends commented that I looked “better” without being able to pin-point the reason. (I choose to believe the reason lies in the sparkling, alluring eyes..)

As daily disposable lenses, the eyes is able to remain fresh and healthy at all times due to the diminished possibility of contamination. In addition, the “wear and dispose” concept is very convenient and saves time on cleaning the lenses after wear. I will be sharing my detailed review of the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ in another post, so do stay tuned!

大家是否试过“大眼隐形眼镜”?本人受ACUVUE® 邀请,使用了ACUVUE® DEFINE™日抛性美瞳隐形眼镜。这专为亚洲人而设计的隐形眼镜,除了能够提升双眼的自然美,放大双眸,还附加防紫外线保护,照顾眼睛的健康。由于是日抛性眼睛,佩戴之后感觉相当舒服,而且即用即丢非常方便省时。
