Review: Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens Almost Could Not Feel That I’m Wearing It

I could hardly remember exactly when was the last time that I wore contact lens. It has been sometime but I could not hesitate just to have them and I do have quite a bit in my hands that is waiting to be worn. Here I was introduced to try Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens which will be in stores soon. Let’s find out more about this new lens.

Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens

‘With the expertise and resources of BenQ Materials, a leading optical materials manufacturer in Taiwan, miacare brings to you the world’s first and only EautraSilTM Hydrophilic Silicone Technology and silicone hydrogel contact lenses – kicking off a new era of comfortable and healthy contact lens wear for your eyes.’

Before I go into further details of the lenses, check out on the advertisement.

Innovative EautraSilTM Hydrophilic Silicone Technology 1 st Solvent-free Silicone Hydrogel Lens with 6 Times More Oxygen

Conventional silicone hydrogel lenses are hydrophobic and require the use of solvents to combine silicone with hydrogel. To raise the standard of lens wear safety, miacare incorporates its world-leading EautraSilTM Hydrophilic Silicone Technology to modify silicone molecules with new hydrophilic properties so that the silicone and hydrogel can be combined without solvent treatment. This results in the world’s first solvent-free formula for silicone hydrogel lenses: no irritation, no allergic reactions, only six times more oxygen for maximized breathability and comfort for the eye!

  • Dot Matrix Color Printing Technology  for Beauty and Breathability

The unique dot pattern design is tailor-made for Asian eyes – a naturally beautiful look with plenty of room for oxygen passage. The outer pattern with a diameter of 13.2mm and a large un-obscured optical area brings out the natural beauty of the eye that as high as 88%3. of miacare CONFiDENCE users find satisfying.

  • The Unique Color Blocking Technology for Total Fade Resistance

The tri-layer printing technique keeps the pigmented layer in the center and isolated from the eye – ensuring the highest safety and protection for your eyes.

  • Smart Peripheral Edge Design for Lens Centration

Automatic conjunctiva curve alignment with an asymmetric edge design effectively brings tears and oxygen to the surface of the eye, assuring adequate tear exchange for improved surface wettability, reduced irritation and extra comfort. What’s more, the lenses will stay precisely where they are naturally, unaffected by eye movements, for a consistent, flawless look.

  • Double Moisturizing Agents: Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Alginate

This unique formula is exclusively developed by miacare to moisturize and revitalize your eyes for better eye health.

  • pH 7.2 Solution: Gentle and Non-Irritating

miacare contact lenses are packaged in a gentle, non-irritating pH 7.2 solution similar to tears to maintain the natural, healthy state of the eye.

Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens With & Without

Here is how it looks for me on close up. It gives an eyes enlargement effect which is a few mm wider than from the diameter of my iris. The brown shade is lighter than I expected, it’s more of a copper shade that brings a little red undertone and tend to bring out the redness more.

Here is how it looks on the overall face and you could see that my eyes are gleaming.

Above all…

The first time when I had it on, I could help it notice that how clear the lenses are although I’m not wearing any power. It is as though I did not wear anything. With other lenses, it could take a few blinks before I could get a clearer vision. However by the end of the first day of wearing it, my eyes turned really red and that was after 9 hours of wearing it. I was thinking that it could be because I have not been wearing contact lens for a long time.

I did not give up on the lenses and tried it again after a few days when my eyes are all good and recovered from the redness. I wore it for 9 hours and this time I did not experience any redness. Nonetheless, as I look around at the corner of my eyes I could feel the edges of the lenses which made me uncomfortable the most.

The lenses is real soft that it could fold up easily and can be tricky to wear. It took me a few times to wear it. I do find that this lenses is comfortable on the overall, just a few factors that could probably because of my sensitive eyes. I don’t feel my eyes were dry and normally I would get headache when I wear contact lens and I did not experience this.  It is light that I could hardly feel like I’m wearing any lenses. You are able to register for free trial of the lenses and you could submit your details, here.

Price: MYR90 (two boxes)

Availability: Nationwide optical stores by end of 2014

PROs:

  • Clear vision once worn
  • Kept eyes hydrated
  • Did not cause any headaches

My Rating: 4.8/5

Review: Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green, Mesmerizing Eyes with Enlarging Effect

When it comes to selecting contact lens, I always search for something that gives the most natural looking and opaque color. Other aspects that I’m looking into is the diameter about 14 mm, I don’t fancy those enlarging eye effect and thick black rims. Also, the comfortability and moisture is important. GlassesOnline.com.my approached to review one of their lenses in committing to their Blogger Ambassadorship and after much consideration, I have chosen Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green. Phantasee contact lens are more known for their crazy lenses such as cat eye, spider web and more, those are perfect for Halloween or Cosplay.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Blister Packaging

Phantasee Natural is the choice for those who are looking for a pair of contact lenses that would blend in with their discreet style. Produced with perfect colour blending in mind, the Natural series enhances yours eyes with subtle blending patterns and colours. The Natural series are also a 3 month replacement lens which make it a value for money option.

  • Frequency: Quarterly Wear
  • Diameter: 14mm
  • Material: Hydrogel Terpolimer
  • Water Content: 45%

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - In Case

I have high expectation towards these lenses. Although it is described in the website that these lenses is 14mm, it seems far bigger than I expected. I also have the tendency to choose colors that are very light because I have dark brown eyes to begin with and always worried that if the color lenses doesn’t show.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Close Up With & Without

Here is how it looks like of without and with the lenses. The color is acceptable but I was right on the enlarging effect and because of it, it doesn’t seem as natural anymore. My eyes usually fit nicely and look natural with 14mm lenses but this seems like 16mm lens.

To put this on is slightly tough because the lens is quite soft. I had to tilt my head back when the lens touches my eye to ensure that it doesn’t come off because it didn’t want to get attached. The color pay-off is much darker than I expected but the pattern of the lens does look natural actually.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Traclyn Yeoh

Here is me wearing the lenses and as you can see the color doesn’t show as much unless you come close-up to me. Great thing about the pattern of the lenses makes my eyes looks mesmerizing.

Verdict?

Everything actually seems good but the enlarging effect is just a turn off for me. Upon wearing this, it doesn’t feel comfortable for the first hour but I get used to it later on and after 4 – 5 hours, my eyes began to redden showing signs of dryness. In my opinion, I think these lenses are very affordable and this could last for 3 months. I also love the fact that the come in blister packaging because its more friendly to open it than vial packagings. If you fancy this type of lenses, it could be for you.

They have recommend a friend program for you to earn discounts where your friend will need to register and make their first purchase Also, coupon share with friends to earn vouchers to shop at MrLens are available too! If you want to know how to shop with them, click here. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m one of the participants for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest and here is my second pair which is Freshlook Colorblends in Gray to review. My first pair was Amethyst, review available here.

As always blister pack are much more user friendly when it comes to opening it rather than vial pack where you have to open the metal seal which is much more prone to injuring yourself. There’s quite a strong sterile scent when opening it but the scent doesn’t stay after a minute or two. These lenses are 45% phemfilcon A (with UV absorbing  chromophores), 55% water, in borate buffered saline containing 0.005% Poloxamer and they are monthly disposable contact lens.

I usually soak my lenses the night before with my saline solution, just to allow it to adjust to my suitable saline solution. These are 14.5 by diameter which doesn’t have much of a big eye effect. These lenses are meant to create a natural colored eyes and because it is a three tone lenses, it makes it much more natural.

Here is a before and after. How the lens turn out on your eyes is depending on your iris color and I have dark brown . For the image above, I’m using artificial light . I reckon gray is much more opaque than amethyst and they both looked really natural.

If you are a first timer in using this range of contact lens, I recommend trying this shade first if you’re unsure which color to choose from. Gray is one of the color that flatters most skin tones. I was wearing this lenses in one of my makeup tutorial, Ooh La Lace Prom and please check it out if you’re interested in this look from all the images available in this post. Gray is very alluring in many ways.

The above image is a mixture of artificial and natural light and you could see my eyes are much more lighten. Nothing too dramatic at all but it shows up better than Amethyst. Currently Mr Lens Facebook is having a campaign of Share with Friends to earn MYR20 discount once 10 of your friends like their page. So what are you waiting for?

Brands available in MrLens.com.my include:

Acuvue Tru Eyes, Acuvue Moist,  Acuvue Oasys, Acuvue Oasys Astigmatism, Acuvue Define, Soflens 38, Soflens 59, Soflens Toric, Purevision 2, Purevision HD, Biomedics 38, Biomedics 55, Proclear, Definition, Focus Dailies Aqua Comfort, Focus Night & Day, Air Optix, Air Optix for Astigmatism,  Freshlook One Day, Proclear 1 day, Sauflon Clariti 1 day, Soflens daily disposable, Acuvue 2, Acuvue Advance, Adore Dare, Adore Imagene, Adore Pure Eyes, Air Optix Multifocal, Biomedics 55 Evolution, Biomedics Toric, Blincon BB, Blincon Big Eyes, Blincon Classic, Blincon Elegance, Blincon Jazzy, Blincon Sweetie, Chameloen, Colorvue, Freshkon Alluring Eyes, Freshkon Color Fusion, Freshkon Dezigner, Freshkon Mosaic, Freshlook Colorblends, Maxim Color Blue, Maxim Colors Orange, Maxim Color Pink, Maxim Color Toric, Sauflon 55UV, Sauflon Bioclear, Saulfon Bioclear Toric, Sauflon Clear Comfort Aspheric, Soflens Multifoca and etc.


Verdict?

These lens are super soft and it kept rolling on my palm while rinsing or flipping back when I try putting them on. Maybe I get the hang of it, the success rate of putting this lens is greater than Amethyst. This is much more comfortable and I still get some sight of blurry spots in my vision. I have not experience any redness from this lens yet because I wear this lens not as often as Amethyst. These pair also moulded its shape on to my eye just like how Amethyst did to me previously. Could someone tell me if this is normal? Despite of it doing so, I have not experience any irritation or other side effects because I  have the same experience with certain lenses too.  If you’re looking for more opaque shades, I suggest you to pick Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green or Sterling Gray.

How much?

Currently they are available for MYR43.00 and price might differ from time to time for its promotion, discount or offer.

PROs:

  • More opaque than Amethyst
  • Natural look
  • High moisture content
  • No redness or irritation

CONs:

  • Too soft to stay that it kept flipping
  • Blurry vision

My rating: 3.5/5
