Contact lenses have become the norm in the Philippines. From simply wanting to get rid of wearing glasses, or to just changing your look subtly, contact lenses have been the answer to most of our eye and aesthetic issues.
One of the trusted and more popular brands in eyecars, Alcon, has welcomed new brand ambassadors Kathryn Bernando and Julia Montes for AIR OPTIX Colors and Freshlook.
To summarize, here are the exciting features of FreshLook® and AIR OPTIX® Colors *
- Benefit from comfort, breathability* and beauty in one contact lens
- Breathable* color contact lenses with nine natural-looking shades, from subtle to vibrant
- Available for people with or without the need for vision correction
Kathryn and Julia have been announced as the brands’ new ambassadors last July 10 at Robinsons Manila Activity Center.
AIR OPTIX® Colors and FreshLook®, both designed to create beautiful, natural-looking eyes, while providing healthy vision and consistent comfort throughout ones wearing period have their own special wearing modalities. AIR OPTIX® Colors is made up of proprietary silicone hydrogel material which allows plenty of oxygen to pass through the contact lenses; therefore they are perfect for LONG-HOUR WEAR. FreshLook® on the otherhand, used the classic hydrogel material and is best for EVERYDAY WEAR.
Knowing how long you want to use your contact lens in a day matters. Just like our bodies need to breathe, oxygen is also essential for the health of the cornea, the clear, domed-shaped front part of the eye. Insufficient oxygen may cause corneal swelling and lead to irritated and red eyes which may bring about uncomfortable lens wear,€ said Dr. Jeanette Romualdez-Oo, Professional Affairs Consultant, Alcon Vision Care.
AIR OPTIX® COLORS and FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses are designed to enhance dark or light eyes and bring out ones natural beauty. These lenses can be prescribed with or without vision correction. They are made with a unique, smooth surface and feature a technology that combines 3 colors -in -1 to blend naturally with the color of your eye. Filipino women can now choose to have AIR OPTIX® Colors for Long Hour Wear or FreshLook® for Everyday Wear depending on their lifestyle.
Both AIR OPTIX® COLORS and FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses are FDA approved, monthly replacement lenses and are available in at least nine beautiful colours, ranging from subtle to vibrant.
AIR OPTIX® COLORS Contact Lenses has an extensive color selection; from subtle enhancements (pure hazel, blue, green, grey and brown), or for bold and striking eyes (brilliant blue, gemstone green, honey and sterling grey).
FreshLook® color selection includes amethyst, green, pure hazel, brown, gray and blue for a subtle look, and honey, sterling gray, gemstone green, brilliant blue for those who want to have striking eyes. FreshLook® also comes in daily disposable contact lenses (pure hazel, blue, green and gray) and FreshLook® Illuminate (rich brown and jet black) for those who just want to have brighter, bigger eyes.

And this one wearing the Gray FreshLook Color
I love that it feels so comfortable to wear! I keep telling people that the reason why I get colored contacts is that I always lose the clear ones. Having color, but ones that really match my natural eyes, reallly helps in looking for that lens when I accidentally drop it on the floor. I also love how it pops out my eyes, without me looking like a cat. I like how it makes me smize (smile with eyes) better just like Miss Universe, Pia. Notice that in this photo, I wore no makeup, but people will be like “Hey, you’re blooming.” Best part is, these contact lenses breathe! This means I can wear it longer, like up to 24 hours and that’s what I need because I usually have a packed 6am -10pm day!
Now you can feel free to have fun, be beautiful and have healthy eyes with Air Optix® Colors and FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses. Remember, responsible contact lens wear equals happy, brighter, and healthier eyes.
Contact lenses are medical devices and should be fitted by a licensed eye care professional, even for people who do not need vision correction. Your eye care professional can determine the contact lens and correction that are best for you,€ Dr. Romualdez-Oo said.
