Everything seems to be HD these days, doesn’t it? High Definition TV screens, HD computer screens, HD cameras but what on earth are HD contact lenses?
In every one of the other examples I gave above, HD means High Definition or more pixels leading to a clearer, brighter picture. So will HD lenses somehow give me a computer screen vision of the world in high definition?
No, they won’t, but according to Bausch & Lomb, who produce Pure Vision 2 HD lenses, these HD lenses will improve the quality of my vision by using what they call “High Definition™ Optics.”
What are HD Contact Lenses?
The Pure Vision 2 HD lenses are, according to Bausch & Lomb, reduce spherical aberration, which can be a barrier to good vision in low light. People with spherical aberration can
find, even when wearing their contact lenses, that in low light their vision is impaired, with them seeing halos around things, or suffering from blurred vision and glare.
Bausch & Lomb say that 77% of users who have tried these new HD lenses have found their vision to be significantly improved in low light by using the Pure Vision 2 HD lenses.
Plus the HD lenses also are one of the most breathable lenses available today, allowing more oxygen to the eye, to keep the eye healthy and vision bright. One of the most high-tech aspects of this lens, as far as I am concerned, however, is the fact that they are so incredibly thin; it hardly feels as if you’re wearing a lens at all.
HD for Astigmatism Too
Boosted by the success of their first “HD” lenses, the company has now launched a version of HD lenses for people suffering from astigmatism. These feature a nifty piece of technology that works with your eyelids and means the lens stays in place where it should be, all day long, no matter what you are doing, guaranteeing clear, halo free, blur free and glare free vision.
This is all very impressive, but personally, I still want my higher pixelated vision. Ah well, sometime in the future maybe?
Have you tried the new HD lenses – if so, what did you think?
