Why ACUVUE®

Every eye is different. ACUVUE® is inspired by them all

 

Every eye is different and ACUVUE® is inspired by them all. That’s why our contact lenses feature eye inspired innovations, advanced technologies designed to work in harmony with your patient’s eyes.

 

 


 

 

To create the most seamless wear experience possible, our scientists looked to the anatomy of the natural eye and eyelid. The result was invisible edge for comfort, this design features a smooth, ultra-thin, tapered edge with minimal edge height that reduces interactions with the eyelid.

Inspired by the eye’s own tear film, our scientists developed a unique patented process to embed high molecule PVP into our lens matrix. This hydrating agent mimics the mucin in the tear film, providing moisture at the surface and throughout the lens.1

One effective approach to keeping your patient’s eye’s healthy is to have them avoid long-term UV radiation exposure. Our lenses incorporate an advanced UV absorbing monomer that acts as another line of defence to help block harmful UV radiation.

Inspired by the natural antioxidants that occur in the ocular environment, our scientists explored the impact of an added antioxidant to the material of our contact lenses. They discovered that the addition of this component delivers 4x the antioxidant capacity of vitamin E. This helps to keep tear film lipids in their natural state when they interact with lens material, supporting comfort for your patients.2

Pupil size changes with age but also due to refractive error. Our multifocal contact lenses optimise the optical design across the power and add range with 183 optical designs to closely match the natural variation in pupil size.

Patients with astigmatism need their lenses to stay stable throughout the day, but natural head and eye movement can cause them to rotate. Our lenses for astigmatism have 4 stabilisation zones that work naturally with the eyelids, harnessing the power of the blink to help keep the lens in place.

†All ACUVUE® 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.

Important Safety Information:

ACUVUE® Contact Lenses are indicated for vision correction. As with any contact lens, eye problems, including corneal ulcers, can develop. Some wearers may experience mild irritation, itching or discomfort. Contact lenses should not be used in case of eye infections or any other eye conditions, or in case of a systemic disease that may affect the eye.
