New Player in the Contact Lens Market Coming Soon!
SG Contact Lenses will launch for the sale of a New Product from Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day daily disposable silicone hydrogel contact lenses or SiHy daily. (READ ON!)
Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day
According to a company press release, Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day contact lenses integrate a next-generation contact lens material (kalifilcon A) with Advanced MoistureSeal Technology to have an extremely wettable surface and excellent breathability for safe lens wear.
The Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day contact lenses with Advanced MoistureSeal and ComfortFeel technologies provide a complete design that includes high oxygen, low modulus, convenient storage, UV blocking, and High Definition Optics to suit the needs of today’s contact lens wearer.
The Advanced MoistureSeal Technology operates in unison with the latest ComfortFeel Technology, which is a game-changer. Comfort and eye health additives, such as moisturisers/conditioners, osmoprotectants, and electrolytes, are used in the ComfortFeel Technology to offer excellent comfort for a complete 16 hours of lens wear and to support a safe and balanced ocular atmosphere.
In a press release, Thomas J. Appio, president of Bausch + Lomb/International, said, “Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day brings a higher standard of innovation to the contact lens category.” He also mentioned that this ground-breaking new silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens is another additional product that complements their increasingly powerful contact lens collection, allowing eye care professionals to take their patients and practices ever deeper to enjoy the “ULTRA” life.
Ultra One Day vs MyDay vs Oasys 1 Day
Ultra One Day daily disposable lenses by Bausch & Lomb, which use silicone hydrogel, are soft lenses that feature MoistureSeal, which maintains the lenses’ moisture by 95% for 16 hours and Silicone Hydrogel, which makes eyes comfortable by acting as a cushion of comfort.
As a contact lens wearer, you might be wondering which among the variety of choices can be “the one” that will put your eyes at ease. Without further ado, let me compare these Ultra One Day to other competitive brands in the market: MyDay Daily Disposable Contact Lenses by CooperVision and ACUVUE OASYS 1-Day by Johnson & Johnson.
MyDay Daily Disposable Contact Lenses by CooperVision offers untarnished comfort and breathability throughout the day with its Smart Silicone Technology that effectively provides oxygen to the wearer’s eyes using less silicone than most daily disposable brands used. It also has High oxygen transmissibility and has UV Inhibitor.
ACUVUE OASYS 1-Day are contact lenses great for tired eyes because of the Eye-Inspired Design and HydraLuxe Technology. This brand from Johnson & Johnson eliminates eye strain when staring at digital devices. It provides moisture that helps refrain eyes from drying.
For a better and easier understanding, I created a table that will help you decide to help you.

*Information came from SG Contact Lenses’ product details
The amount of oxygen that can flow through the contact lens to enter the eye referred to as oxygen permeability. Dk/t is the unit of measurement. The oxygen permeability of the first versions of soft contact lenses was around 6–8 Dk/t.
A high oxygen permeability means that your cornea gets plenty of oxygen, which is essential for keeping your eyes safe. Hydrogel lenses have higher water content and lower oxygen permeability than silicone hydrogel lenses. Hydrogel lenses often have a higher oxygen permeability but a lower water content.
Hydrogel lenses transport oxygen into the lens using water. With a maximum Dk/t of about 40, a higher water content means a greater extent of oxygen permeability. Water does not transport oxygen in silicone-hydrogel lenses; instead, silicone molecule chains do. These lenses’ silicone molecules may have an oxygen permeability of more than 100 Dk/t.
Having said so, Bausch & Lomb’s Ultra One Day has the highest oxygen permeability among other daily contact lenses allowing it to give more oxygen needed by the eyes.
Coming Soon at Singapore Contact Lenses!
The good news is that these daily contact lenses from Bausch & Lomb will be available for purchase in Singapore through the online optical shop SG Contact Lenses, so be sure to follow the site to know the latest product inclusions.
WARNING: Since UV-absorbing contact lenses do not fully cover the eye and surrounding area, they are not a replacement for UV-absorbing eyewear, such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses. UV-blocking contact lenses can help shield you from harmful UV rays. However, there have been no clinical trials to show that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses decreases the risk of cataracts or other eye disorders. Make sure to use UV sunglasses or goggles in pair with these UV contacts for more excellent eye protection.
