One day when I was in the 6th grade, I noticed that I couldn’t see the board without sitting in one of the first few rows of the classroom. After telling my mom and visiting an eye doctor, it was official; I needed glasses. Fast forward to high school, I simply didn’t want to rely on glasses anymore, and wanted to learn more about contacts. It has now been over 10 years, and I can honestly say wearing contacts has changed my life. Being able to work and live life everyday not worrying about glasses, or whether or not I can see something, is priceless. I recently had the opportunity to #ChangeItUp and got fitted into ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses and I couldn’t be happier.
Last week I visited Dr. Resnick to be fitted for ACUVUE® brand lenses. I had been using the same brand and type of contact for years, so I was eager to learn more about the new technologies ACUVUE® offers. The monthly lenses I was previously using had a tendency to feel dry halfway through their cycle, which had become frustrating and uncomfortable to say the least. Dr. Resnick fitted me with ACUVUE® VITA® Monthly Contact Lenses, with HydraMax technology. The technology is designed to maximize and maintain hydration so that your lenses feel comfortable throughout the entire month, not just the first week or so. They also have the highest level of UV protection which is definitely an added bonus.*
I left Dr. Resnick’s office that evening feeling confident and comfortable. Taking care of your vision is so crucial, and I left knowing I had been fitted for contacts that work best for me, and my life. Everyday tasks are so much easier, and I honestly forget that I’m wearing them most of the time. For years I simply stuck with what I was used to, but I’m so glad I changed it up and tried ACUVUE®. My new lenses have transformed my everyday life. This weekend I will actually be partnering with ACUVUE® and attending College Fashion Week on their behalf. I am so excited to share the experience with all of you! Stay tuned!
Are you attending College Fashion Week? Do you currently wear contact lenses?
*WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.
