Every ACUVUE® Contact Lens is inspired by the natural function of the eye1 based on a deep understanding of patient needs. Combined with your expertise, EYE-INSPIRED™ INNOVATIONS help you deliver differentiated vision experiences to your patients.

Every eye is different. We’re inspired by them all.1

 


Invisible Edge Design

INVISIBLE EDGE FOR COMFORT

Unique to ACUVUE® Contact Lenses

Inspired by the anatomy of the eye and eyelid. Johnson & Johnson scientists created consistently thin edged, contoured lenses that help conform the lens to the shape of the eye and minimise lid interaction.3

MOISTURE-INFUSED FOR HYDRATION

In every ACUVUE® Contact Lens

Inspired by the natural eye and the function of the tear-film, every ACUVUE® lens is embedded with PVP to help maintain hydration and mimic tear film mucins.2

UV BLOCKING FOR EYE HEALTH

In every ACUVUE® Contact Lens

Inspired by the effects of UV radiation on the eye, Johnson & Johnson scientists created the only contact lens portfolio that incorporates UV blocking in every lens to help protect eyes from the transmission of harmful UV radiation.*†2

PUPIL OPTIMISED FOR MULTIFOCAL VISION

In ACUVUE® MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses

Inspired by the natural eye and pupil size in relation to ageing and refractive error, Johnson & Johnson scientists created 1835 pupil-optimised designs4 the ONLY technology that uniquely optimises the optical design to the pupil size according to age and refractive power.

EYELID STABILISED FOR ASTIGMATISM

In ACUVUE® Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM

Inspired by ocular anatomy and the need for astigmats to maintain clear, stable vision, Johnson & Johnson scientists developed an Eyelid Stabilised Design, that helps keep the lens in place, even with eye or head movements.6

Footnotes

All ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses have Class 1 or Class 2 UV-blocking to help provide protection against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. UV transmission measured with
-1.00DS lens.

* Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.
