How do we get rid of foggy lenses with Contact Lenses?

Have you ever been an observer of the blurring phenomenon of eyeglass lenses? It may not seem like a real discomfort, but as the protagonist of such a scene, I confess that it is extremely annoying.

Moreover, in the pandemic we have adopted the wearing of face masks as second nature. But as we eyeglass wearers know, wearing goggles and a mask is a challenge. Why? Because with every breath or word you breathe, a fog settles in that creates frustration…

  • What are the options for those facing this problem?

Today there is a modern solution that provides clear, comfortable and uncompromised vision. We don’t have to give up the mask, nor the quality of vision.

What is it? The use of contact lenses.

Given the obligation to wear a mask and the cold temperatures that favour the blurring of any spectacle lenses, contact lens wearers are at an advantage. We are now in a context where contact lenses are better than glasses.

They don’t fog up, they can’t fall out, they don’t restrict our field of vision and they are very comfortable.

Bear in mind that contact lenses do not necessarily replace glasses. The two solutions are complementary and not mutually exclusive. Of course there are exceptions which we will not discuss in this article, such as therapeutic lenses or those for slowing the progression of myopia.

  • But who can wear contact lenses?

The short answer is that anyone can wear contact lenses, regardless of age or occupation. Following an office visit, the eye care professional will recommend the right lenses for the problem you have and beyond.

As there are many different types of contact lenses, the recommendation will take into account dioptres, eye health, expectations and budget. So whether you have myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism or presbyopia, there’s a lens for you.

To eliminate any worries, you have the support of your optometrist 24/7.

You will receive all the information you need to make an informed choice and will be personally instructed on the fitting, removal and maintenance of the lenses prescribed, depending on their characteristics. Did I make you curious?

The first step is to book an appointment for a consultation!

Let’s not fool ourselves that we’re doing just fine.

6 ways to keep your eyes sparkling with holiday happiness!

6 ways to keep your eyes sparkling with holiday happiness!

Happy eyes provide excitement and fond memories!
Making your eyes happy is all about creating happy memories. A holiday is coming up that we will experience differently because of the current situation. But these changes should not limit us but make us reinvent ourselves. Discovering new skills, developing new behaviours makes us feel better, happier, more fulfilled.
I invite you on a 5-stop journey to discover how you can be happier this holiday season.

Keep it simple, there’s no room for holiday complications

We often overindulge at times when we should be simple. At the holidays we seek out impossible gifts, out of a desire to show our gratitude or perhaps to satisfy gaps left over from the past year. The Christmas table looks like the tree in the corner of your room. The gifts you open once, the food you enjoy for a short time. But there are still plenty of moments to spend with loved ones. Those moments require no preparation, no running around and in the end that’s all that matters, because remembering the relaxing, joyful moments will make your eyes sparkle with happiness.

It’s okay to say no – but do it gently

Yes, yes it’s hard. Gathering with family, full meals, visiting all the relatives, and your wishes look different. Happiness is only built through activities, moments you want in your life. If those moments differ from everyone else’s have the courage to tell them these things. Choose just the right words for that moment. Remember any goal you want to achieve requires a plan of action with at least three realistic choices.

Let go of childhood memories
Memories of the holidays with the flavors of cupcakes, roast beef stir you up every year. What’s different NOW? You! Because you’re not grandma, you’re not mom, maybe all around you aren’t the same people anymore. It’s your time NOW! Create your own memories through personal holiday customs. Those habits that you remember with equal pleasure and that make your eyes sparkle with happiness.

Be true to yourself – even if it hurts
Where are we going for Christmas dinner this year? To my parents…to your parents? But you just want to stay home. Every year you had to make a choice, and every time there was a gap somewhere that you struggled to fill. Maybe it’s time to see what it’s like to stay at home, eating dinner by simple candlelight, next to the beautifully decorated tree that is abandoned at Christmas every year. Feel Christmas through all your pores, making your eyes happy with the atmosphere in your own home.

Focus on what you have right now, let go of the desires you can’t reach.

Wishes are part of the realm of the near or distant future. We create illusions based on what we want, but we don’t have to want it. You’ve noticed the two verbs: to want and to desire. Wanting may be possible, but not obligatory – you can dispense with it. But what you want is possible, and it makes you want to move.

What do you want to make your eyes sparkle with happiness after the holidays?
I invite you to keep a journal – the Gratitude Journal – in which you write down everything that makes you happy NOW. Over time we tend to forget what makes us happy. Think of this journal as a photo album that you go through whenever you want to enjoy the wonderful moments you had at a particular time. The thrill of happiness is only felt when you see with your own eyes that you have experienced happiness.
Make a habit of keeping this journal, which you will complete just 5 days a week for 53 weeks.

Monday – Write down what you are grateful for today!
There are a lot of things that happen that we can be thankful for. We usually pass them by without seeing them, experiencing them because we don’t recognize them. Their moment of awareness comes with the moment you see them. If you notice them, you will have the opportunity to go back and see them. Write down at least 3 moments you are grateful for today. If you multiply them by the number of weeks in a year, you will be very rich in happiness.

Tuesday – Remember!
Remember at least one moment when you were happy. Maybe you listened to a song, maybe you saw something, maybe you enjoyed the taste of a dish, maybe you saw a loved one, read a book, saw a movie, etc. Happiness can have many faces. Recognise them so that you are able to see and experience them!

Wednesday – Imagine your future!
Spend a few minutes writing about your future. A future full of happiness can be had when you plan for it and take action NOW AND HERE. Be realistic with what you set out to do, only rely on what you are capable of doing. Remember that any capability can be improved if you act on it.

Thursday – Write to someone!
There are certainly important people in your life. Write to that person and tell them how important they are in your life. Tell them how they have contributed to who you are now. Keep it simple, it can be anyone in your life. As they say: every person in your life has a role to play in relation to you.

Friday – Analyze your week!
Look at all your personal and professional activity over the past week. Write down 3 things that went well in the last week, they can be simple things, maybe trivial at first glance. But their outcome matters and counts towards your well-being. Write down what YOU did to make that thing happen. Write down how you feel today, looking back over the week!
Next holiday year you’ll have 53 times as many moments of happiness as there are weeks in a year. You’ll certainly be much richer, and your eyes will sparkle with happiness.
Happiness is built!
You may have noticed that I’ve written NOW in capital letters. Yes for in coaching it is about NOW and HERE. NOW is the only time we can act, the past we cannot change, the future we cannot control.
Act in the present to have eyes that twinkle with happiness!
Happy eyes give emotions and happy memories!

Happy eyes

Happy eyes

Call your video a friend or a dear relative
The time we go through is a new experience for everyone. Its consequences have changed the way we interact, communicate, but especially the way we use our sight. Our eyes are exposed to computer screens to an extreme extent. Long meetings with colleagues, meetings with clients, courses, seminars have all moved to the virtual environment. At the end of the day we expect to quickly switch off our computer, tablet or phone.

But something remains unsatisfied…

The joy of relaxing with a loved one! A story over a glass of wine, tea with your best friends or with family members you haven’t seen for a long time saves you . Plus the joy of reunion will show in the happiness expressed in each other’s eyes. Interacting with them, even online, will bring back fond memories, seen through your eyes that were shining with happiness at the time.

Make your eyes happy!

Happiness is a state we choose to experience and is generated by our actions. The positive emotions generated by happiness remain in our hearts and minds. They can be the resources of happiness for other moments of boredom, sadness or apathy, when a simple image crosses your mind and your eyes smile again!

Make your eyes happy and spend time online with your loved ones.

Tips & tricks

  • Plan at least a few hours in advance for your date. That’s the only way it used to happen before the pandemic
  • Prepare the date!!! Order or prepare yourself some food, get your cups of tea, coffee or glasses of wine ready…full

  • Allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy the company of your loved ones.
  • Organise at least two such meetings a week.

Why say YES (also) to contact lenses?

Why say YES (also) to contact lenses?

If in January we said that this year’s resolutions should include an optometric check-up, this month we’re taking it a step further… how about changing your look too? How about saying YES to contact lenses?
They’re the ideal alternative to glasses, and can be a great help when you want complete freedom, and at the same time, see perfectly.

There are many advantages when it comes to wearing contact lenses. Here, in a nutshell, are seven benefits of them:

1. Increased comfort
First of all: increased comfort! It may seem uncomfortable to place a lens directly on your eyes, but it’s not, because they are designed to be comfortable. They’re made of a material that lets your eyes breathe, and depending on their type, will help you see perfectly for up to a month.

2. Full field of vision
Contact lenses allow full visual acuity and will allow you to see at any angle! You won’t have to turn your head to see sideways when driving, for example, while glasses block your peripheral vision.

3. They don’t break
While glasses frames can break when you play sports for example, or when they fall on the floor, contact lenses won’t suffer such accidents.

4. Ideal for exercise and sport
Are you an active person? Whether you like to run, play tennis or cycle, sports and exercise involve a lot of movement. This can become cumbersome when you wear glasses.
Even when swimming you can wear contact lenses, but only disposable ones.

5. They won’t affect your style
One of the main advantages of contact lenses is that they are not visible.
Choosing a pair of glasses for a stylish outfit, for example, can be difficult, which is something you don’t need to worry about when opting for contact lenses.

6. Complete freedom!

It may sound melodramatic, but glasses can influence some great moments in life! Think about it… How could glasses create a problem during your first kiss?

7. You can wear them whatever the weather

They won’t fog up, you’ll be able to wear any kind of sunglasses, in short you’ll be able to enjoy impeccable vision, no matter what the weather!

I’m waiting for you to convince yourself of the benefits of contact lenses during the weekend dedicated to them, on 15 and 16 February, in the Best Optic Zizinului centre! Attendance is free but requires an appointment on 0771 224 466
