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.
‘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.’

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.

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.

The lenses comes in a sleek box of 5 pairs and these lenses are daily lenses that are meant to be dispose after a day usage.
At the side of the box displays of outlines the details of the lenses of an oxygen transmissibility level of Dk/t 150, contains sodium alginate and hyalyronic acid, with UV protection, 1 day use only and with 10 pieces that is equivalent to 5 pairs.
The 10 pieces comes in blister packaging that is arranged back to back of one another. I find it handful even to bring along the box if I travel around because of it’s sleek packaging that can be slip into my bag easily.
These lenses comes in 2 shades and I have selected CONFIDENCE brown where it is described to capture everyone’s attention with dreamy eyes! With the warm and softness a deep brown tone, no one can resist your mesmerizing gaze.
Each blister package also has an indication of the power, base curve, diameter, shade and expiry.
In the box also comes with a manual with careful reminders.
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.
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.
