People looking for a contact lens which can offer protection against the sun should look no further than 1 Day Acuvue Moist lenses, according to one source.
The Pointers for Parents blog said that contact lenses which offer UV protection are a must if people want to avoid the sun"s harmful rays damaging their vision, though sunglasses should still be worn over the top.
Dr Stephen Cohen, an optometrist, told the source: "Acuvue Moist Brand Contact Lenses offer up to 82 per cent UVA and 97 per cent UVB protection, the highest levels available in a one-day contact lens at this time."
He added that there are many contact lenses on the market which claim to offer protection but only some actually protect the eyes, something which wearers must be aware of.
Meanwhile, Naomi Creason, writing for the Carlisle Sentinel, warned people who wear contact lenses to be prepared for the summer if they usually suffer from hayfever and similar allergies.
