I have a congenital visual impairment (achromatopsia) and have been wearing square-cut glasses for many years. However, due to stigmatization, it was always a problem for me to wear sunglasses in bright rooms.
These contact lenses saved my life! Since I can remember, I go through life in pain. Every source of light means pain. When I was outside, I couldn’t see anything. And the pain was unbearable.
Today we got our first really sunny day since I got the contacts, and I have to say they are amazing! I can be outside without a terrible need to squint and it doesn't make me so anxious and irritated.
A very exciting day in our household! We’ve been practicing with clear contacts and today we got our sample red ones to try! She seemed to love them inside(our home has huge windows and is very bright).
Hello AchroLenses, I want to inform you that we received the contact lenses and you have no idea how much I appreciate what you did for us and we are so grateful.
I have CNGA3 achromatopsia. I didn't think contact lenses could be a solution for me. Ophthalmologists advised me against it due to the high sensitivity of my eyes. I was skeptical myself too. 11 years ago my eyesight started to deteriorate drastically. Every light hurt me a lot. Eye pains, migraines and distant vision problems started. From an active person I changed into a sick and tormented one. I couldn't go outside alone anymore. In the house, all the windows had to be tightly covered. My world has shrunk to function at home. Of course, I had many pairs of glasses from an ophthalmologist with different colors of the filters. They helped, but the light was still shining in my eyes. When I wore AchroLenses AL560 for the first time, I almost cried out with happiness. My eyeballs relaxed in an instant. After all, nothing offended me and everything around me brightened. For the first time in a very long time, I was able to reveal all the windows, go outside and see more details without prescription glasses. AchroLenses changed my life and everyday functioning. They are very soft and barely noticeable to the eye. I currently use the AL560 outdoors, occasionally AL580 in bright sunlight and the AL540 indoors and in cloudy weather. The service at AchroLenses is at the highest level, and the approach to the customer is individual. The best solutions for me. I highly recommend it.
