Bausch + Lomb Biotrue ONEday Lens

Choosing the right contact lens can be quite a nuisance, especially when it comes to first timers. There are a few factors to consider such as cost, ease of use, comfort, clarity and length of wear. For me personally, comfort and ease of use will be the top priority as I have dry and sensitive eyes. Therefore, daily contact lenses would be the perfect choice – there’s no need to clean or store them (super convenient for lazy bums like me of course, heh) cause you can just dispose them at the end of the day, reducing the risk of getting eye infection as well. Though I must say they are usually the more expensive option.

Introducing the new premium daily disposable contact lens, Biotrue® ONEday Daily lens which is made from a next generation, bio-inspired material called HyperGel. Inspired the human eye itself,  it is an innovation that combines the best of conventional hydrogels and silicone hydrogels and is set to mimics your eye's own healthy tears and match the moisture level of your eyes to bring you comfortable vision throughout the day.

Our eyes are naturally moist but wearing contact lenses for long hours can dry them out, leaving your eyes feeling dry and irritated. With this high-moisture material Hypergel, it is designed to work like the eye, matching the cornea’s 78 per cent water content to support incredible comfort. It also allows oxygen to flow freely through the lens, without the need of silicone, delivering oxygen level the open eye needs to maintain healthy, white eyes and it matches the cornea water content, which provides exceptional vision and comfort throughout the day. The outer surface of the lens is designed to mimic the lipid layer of tear film to prevent dehydration and  thus provide moisture up to 16 hours(!), which completely outdo all the major contact lens brands available in the market.

Above all benefits, Bausch and Lomb Biotrue® ONEday Daily’s Hypergel is also the first soft contact lens material that provides UV protection. It can block 70% of UVA and 95% of UVB radiation.

I've tried almost all kinds of contact lens from monthly disposable lens to daily disposable lens, there is nothing quite like Biotrue® ONEday. I have really sensitive and dry eyes, thus not all contact lens fit the criteria. First and foremost, the material is really thin and soft, thus putting them on is easy-peasy.  My experience wearing these contact lens has been nothing short of amazing, it lasted me throughout the whole day from running errands to gym and even dinner without a slight irritation or dryness at all. It's definitely my go-to lens now for everday use and trust me, your eyes will love the new Biotrue® ONEday!

Biotrue® ONEday lens, priced at RM 125 per box of 30 pieces is now available at all leading optical outlets nationwide while the Biotrue® Multi-Purpose Solution is available in Twin pack (355ml x 2) priced at RM61.50.

Traveloka Makes Travel-okay ✌

Longing for a short summer getaway yet you're on a tight budget? Look no further ‘cause Malaysia is home to some of the best beaches in Southeast Asia! And did you know there are a whopping 878 islands in our country? Sounds like we’re pretty spoiled for choices doesn’t it? I’m pretty sure when people recommend places to travel in Malaysia, some of these places would definitely include Malacca, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Sabah. How many of you have actually heard of Kelantan? 

So recently I came across a resort that I’ve never heard of before: Tok Aman Bali Beach Resort which is tucked away in our very own backyard of Kelantan; a low key local gem that very few have discovered. 42km away from the town of Kota Bahru to be exact. With rate as low as RM160 a night, you get to enjoy the calm yet luxurious ambience of the resort with comfortable rooms that have a scenic view of the lagoon. Not to forget, this resort is family friendly resort.

The large swimming pool is definitely the limelight of the resort situated right in the middle of the resort. There are a lot of activities that can be done at the resort including kayaking, pedal boat rides, fishing, paintball and even spa. You can rent a bike and explore around the resort as well. The best thing is that the beach is just 5 min walk away from the resort. Boy, I can already imagine myself relaxing barefoot on white sandy beach while reading a book and sipping on a cocktail with the waves crashing the rocks in the background. Ahhh, the smell of salty water and ocean breeze too. Isn’t it obvious that I’m actually dying for a beach getaway too? Haha!

There are also several attractions out of the resort where you can visit such as Siti Khadijah Market, Jahar Palace, Rantau Panjang Tax Free Zone and Moonlight Beach. And of course don’t forget to treat yourself to their signature cuisine called Nasi Kerabu (the rice is actually blue in colour!) and fly a Wau Bulan (read: moon kite) while you’re there! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and book yourself a flight to Kota Bahru for an unforgettable East Coast experience and hospitality with Traveloka.
