ACUVUE® EYELID STABILISED DESIGN

ACUVUE® EYELID STABILISED DESIGN harnesses the power of natural eyelid movement to help align and stabilise the lens. While traditional prism and peri-ballast designs may be affected by gravity to a greater degree, ACUVUE® EYELID STABILISED DESIGN utilises four unique stabilisation zones that work with the eyelids to help keep the contact lens in place. However your patient’s day may be, their vision is clear and stable all day.

  • Speed: Quickly orientates and stabilises within minutes of application and realigns naturally with every blink1# 
  • No vertical prism in optic zone1
  • As easy to fit as the spherical lenses1+

LACREON® Technology

  • LACREON® wetting technology, with the locked-in wetting agent PVP, provides a long-lasting cushion of moisture for 20 hours or more5 
  • Etafilcon A helps keep eye environment in its natural state, which might otherwise lead to irritation6^ 

Packing solution contains boric acid and disodium tetraborate (sodium borate) to control the pH of the solution.

λ In 14 clinical studies posted on www.clinicaltrials.gov, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand Family (spherical, astigmatism, and multifocal) contact lenses has never been beaten in comfort in its category. www.clinicaltrials.gov is a website maintained by the NIH. The 14 clinical studies evaluated subjective comfort as a primary or secondary endpoint for 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand Family (spherical, astigmatism, and multifocal) contact lenses with LACREON® technology, within the category of hydrogel daily disposable contact lenses. Review conducted as of April 25, 2021.

# Vertical heterophoria possibly caused by prism dissociation due to the presence of induced optical prism is a relevant factor for practitioners to consider when fitting toric contact lenses for monocular astigmats or those requiring a mix of toric soft contact lens designs2,3. Clinical studies have not been done to fully characterize the clinical effects of differences in base down prism among different contact lenses.

** 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 -1.00 lens.

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