One of the questions that I'm most frequently asked aside from, "When are you getting a baby?" is "Where did you get your contact lenses from?"
Just some of the queries I managed to find on my Instagram. Some of which I answered and some I forgot to! So sorry if you haven't heard from me on that! :/
I've been wearing contact lenses from I was 13, coloured and non-colored alike. Tried many different brands before to see which ones are good, and for the past 7-8 years or so, I've been sticking to the ones which I feel are the best- the nicest looking (coloured lenses, that is) and most comfortable to be worn for long hours.
I hardly wear specs outside of home, so you can imagine how frequently I wear my contact lenses, sometimes for 18 hours straight. Over the decade, I've had some really horrifying past experiences with other brands of contact lenses whereby one of it would just decide to pop out from my eye after gently rubbing them, and where my eyes would feel okay but when I looked into the mirror I get the shock of my life- it's all red!, and not forgetting the scary times when they would hurt and poke my eyes so bad that I had to remove it halfway driving on the road! O.O
After searching for the one that suited my eyes the most, I settled with FreshLook Colorblends in Gray. I have been wearing that same old model of colored lenses in Grey for years now! You can check back my blog posts from years ago! Talk about staying loyal!
For days that I need to wear non-colored lenses instead such as going for TV commercial castings and shoots, I would wear Air Optix contact lenses. They were first recommended to me by an optometrist, and since I tried them, I stuck with it since. I found Air Optix lenses to be real comfy as they are slightly larger than what other brands offer, and promotes higher breathability through the lenses so it's much more comfortable to be worn, especially for long hours!
Have always wondered how nice it'd be if I could have the best of both worlds- to have my pretty FreshLook Colorblends in Gray in Air Optix lenses all together!
I guess God granted my wish.
Recently found a new model of contact lenses from Alcon- AIR OPTIX COLORS, which is a merge of both my favourites- FreshLook Colorblends AND Air Optix!
Can you imagine my absolutely delight??
I was over the moon and couldn't wait to try them on!
'Breathable Contact Lenses'
Couldn't agree more, really! For those of you who have been struggling to find a good pair of contact lenses, it's about time you have your lives (and eyes) changed. I'm so enthusiastic about this because I personally experienced the difference myself.
The AIR OPTIX COLORS contact lenses are made with the new SiHy (silicone hydrogel) technology that offers 6x more oxygen through the contact lens as compared to conventional color contact lenses on the market.
They're also made with a unique surface technology that provides consistent comfort throughout the wearing period. The lenses themselves are ultra-smooth due to its permanent plasma surface technology, giving consistent comfort for month-long wearing from Day 1 all the way to Day 30.
They have 9 natural-looking colors available, and yours truly is happily sticking to her all-time favourite color- Gray!
We, at Malaysia are lucky cos we're the first market in Asia to introduce AIR OPTIX COLORS!

Before I go, gotta share with you this super cool feature at AIR OPTIX website where you can virtually try on different colors of contact lenses yourself! Another question I often get is, "How did you finally settle on wearing the color Gray? What if you bought the coloured lenses and found that it doesn't suit you?"
My usual answer would be, "Trial and error! If I don't like this particular color on my eyes, I just won't buy it again."
However, now that we have this special feature of virtually trying on the lenses, you can make a safer and more accurate choice! Click HERE for to "try" on the lenses! ;)
