My Journey with Astigmatism

Hey guys, did you know that 1 out of 2 Singaporeans who have a vision correction need has Astigmatism? Given this statistic, it is no surprise that I am one of them!

Before I wore contact lenses that properly corrected my Astigmatism, I experienced blurry vision at all distances. This greatly affected my performance and confidence when I was filming. Imagine me, constantly blinking and squinting while the cameras were rolling. It was so embarrassing!

At night, I would often experience night glares or haloes. One time, I was driving along the highway and mistook exit 5 for exit 6 because my vision was blurry and there were glares from the streetlights. Can you imagine how challenging it was to drive at night? I felt frustrated and self-conscious by the strain I was putting on my eyes from the constant squinting. Missing the exit was not only annoying, but also one of my most embarrassing moments so far.

My reusable contact lenses also gave me several problems, with comfort and convenience being the major issues.  I was very dependent on eye drops to keep my eyes moist.  As if having blurry vision wasn’t bad enough, I had to deal with dry eyes too!

Once, while I was filming a fight scene for a movie, my right eye started feeling really uncomfortable due to the contact lens. I felt too embarrassed to make everyone wait for me to remove, rinse, and wear back the contact lens. Instead, I just removed my contact lens and went on filming with clear vision in only one eye. It was a terrible, embarrassing experience as I couldn’t really see properly. Lucky for me, I don’t have to go through an experience like that ever again!

What was the solution for me? My Eye Care Professional recommended 1•DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® for ASTIGMATISM. The moment I put them on, it felt so comfortable! My vision was crisp and clear in whatever direction I moved my head, all thanks to the Auto-Focus Technology. This stabilises the contact lenses quickly even during physical movements. Not only that, ACUVUE® has Triple Care that offers a combination of Moisture, Oxygen and UV Protection so my eyes stay healthy and comfortable all day. These qualities are especially important to me as I film for long hours and play a lot of outdoor sport.

1•DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® are also Daily disposable contact lenses, which are convenient and hygienic. I don’t have to worry about cleaning or storing my contact lenses anymore. At the end of the day, I simplyremove and throw away my contact lens. I love the feeling of starting the day with a new pair of contact lenses!

1•DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® for ASTIGMATISM is a true must-have. With my healthier lens of choice, I am all set to take on every day at my best. No more embarrassing moments for me!
