Which Contact Lens Suit You | Biotrue ONEday lenses by Bausch + Lomb [ REVIEW ]

I know it has been awhile since I write review on lens,
so here is a quick one for today :)

 Tbh, it took me very long to finish my contact lens stock mainly because I am such a hoarder and I enjoy switching between different ones depending on my mood. Tell me if you felt the same too! 

Facts about Biotrue ONEday Lenses by Bausch & Lomb
- Each box comes with 30 blister packs of soft contact lens
- Biotrue ONEday matches the natural 78% moisture of our eyes:
Mimics the lipid layer of the tear film
Matches the water content of the cornea
Allows permeability of oxygen for a healthy eye
- Claims to protect against UV rays
- Claims to maintains 98% of its moisture for up to 16 hours*
- Diameter of 14.2mm
- Base Curve 8.6mm
- Made of nesofilcon A


- R E V I E W -
Before I begin, I have to enphasize that everyone's eyes condition is different and therefore, what suits me may not work the same for others. I used to think that the higher level of water content in a lens is better (typical Asian mentality) until I learnt more about it.

Here are 3 types of contact lens category
Low water content (up to 45%) – modern silicon-hydrogel contact lenses, used in contacts that are intended for continual wear. They have almost 100% oxygen permeability.




  • Mid water content (up to 60%) – hydrogel contact lenses, suitable for most users.
  • High water content (up to 90%) – hydrogel contact lenses for more sensitive eyes. Suitable for prevention of the dry eye syndrome
  • Basically any lenses with water content above 65% is considered high moisture but that does not mean it increases oxygen transmission. The more water contact lenses contains, the more difficult it is for oxygen to get to the cornea where the surface is dependent on atmospheric oxygen. Irreversible vascularization happens when there is not enough oxygen to reach your cornea, which explains fine red veins forming on the sclera. Those who suffer from dry eyes syndrome should avoid high water content lenses as it can have adverse reaction as moisture in the lens can draw the eye's natural tears away.

    Before we make any judgement, here is one more fact. The less water contact lenses contain, the less comfortable they are. So, moisture level does place an important role in keeping your eye free from painful red and dry state.

    Lenses that are made of Silicone hydrogel material achieves very high oxygen transmission regardless of its water content. However, this type of lenses are generally more expensive compared to other lens in the market.
    In my personal opinion, I find the blister packs of Biotrue is convenient to bring around, regardless of short trip or to any event. It claimed to hold 98% moisture up to 16 hours (subject to environment condition) but for me, it can only last me up to 6-8 hours before I felt any eye dryness. At times where I have to be out the entire day, I have to remember to bring along contact lens cleansing solution or eyedrops for fast relieve. At the end of a long day, taking it off is a wth horror drama as the lens stuck close to my eyeballs. Moisturing it before removal helps ALOT!

    As much as I hope to like it, it is most unfortunate the Biotrue ONEday lenses did not meet my expectation and my rating is 4/10. This is purely my personal experience and it may work differently for others.

    That's all for now.

    Learning Self-Defence at Kelana Jaya | Elitez MMA [REVIEW]

    Hi everyone!
    It's a new begining for the month of October (with lots of invitations to birthday parties & weddings *watch wallet burns*) and for me, it's the time to sharpen my non-existance skills of self-protection.

    Having bad experiences during college days (knsyoucouplespretendingtofixmotorcycleatthebusstop & hamsapkamyulouatthepark) and me leaving MY next year (yup, it's now in progress), I can't emphasize enough how important to be vigiliant about your surroundings and learning how to react in case something happens will save you. Least buy you some time to escape.
    And TBH ever since those black days, I hardly go out yamcha or whatsoever alone because of my paranoidism with most people on the streets but finally comes to realisation that it cannot stay this way. So, when someone invites me to this Muay Thai trial class in my area, I couldn't say no.

    Heavily padded flooring for a less painful fall
    The place is spacious and very well organized with martial arts equipments, not to mentioned properly ventilated. Although the classes conducted here are more of martial arts based (Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Bootcamp, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu; super fun self defense class), the main purpose behind all of the classes is to Lose weight while learning self defense in a fun way!

    For a total newbie, the instructors did a good job in making you feel at home. The classes conducted is considerably fun in light atmostphere (NO hardcore military drills involved) and you will be trained according to your skills and and stamina. It's good that there are different levels of proficiency in the same class; you can learn a couple of things just by observation. Some of the seniors are also kind in giving guidance, regardless in throwing punches or powerful kicks.

    Fun and condusive classes

    I find that Elitez MMA is a family friendly place, where people of all age group can come together to learn self-defence; kids or friends. At the end of the class, you will be promised with some muscle aches in places you never knew existed. Hahahahah at least for me

    I swear I was throwing a punch!

    The one I went to is located in Kelana Jaya area (Opposite Paradigm Mall, near the Kelana Jaya Giant Hypermarket, located right above a mamak stall. Hahahhahaa!!!). If you are keen to try any of the classes for yourself, they have other branches in Klang and Setia Alam as well.
