New lens offered in widest range of parameters among daily disposable
contact lenses for astigmatism
Johnson & Johnson Vision announced the US launch of ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY Brand Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM, a daily disposable contact lens with BLINK-STABILIZED™ Lens Design and HydraLuxe™ Technology for consistent, clear, stable vision and exceptional comfort.
Among people that require vision correction, nearly half have astigmatism in at least one eye, and full correction can provide them with improved visual quality of life. ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY for ASTIGMATISM combine two technologies:
- HydraLuxe™ Technology includes tear-like molecules and highly breathable hydrated silicone that integrate with the patient’s own tear film. These tear-like molecules help support a stable tear film and reduce symptoms of tired eyes and dryness.
- BLINK STABILIZED® Design harnesses the natural power of the eyelids, to help keep the lens in the correct position.
“We set out to create a better contact lens option for patients with astigmatism, bringing together our best technologies in material and design for a lens that provides clear, stable vision with the exceptional comfort people have come to expect from the ACUVUE OASYS® family,” said Giovanna E. Olivares, OD, Global Astigmatism Platform Director, Johnson & Johnson Vision. “Unlike other lenses for astigmatism that are held in place by gravity and are often thicker toward the bottom of the lens, ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY for ASTIGMATISM harness the natural power of the blink to stabilize on the eye and the lens is symmetrical, resulting in minimal interaction between the lens and the lower eyelid.”
ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY for ASTIGMATISM will be available in the widest range of parameters among daily disposable contact lenses for astigmatism, with 40% more parameters than competitors. This contact lens provides Class I UV protection, blocking more than 90% of UVA and 99% of UVB rays.
