In 1988, Acuvue developed the first soft disposable contact lens. This groundbreaking innovation gave contact lens wearers a product that was more sterile, comfortable and easier to use than regular contact lenses. Over twenty years later, Acuvue continues to develop innovative technologies, such as the silicone hydrogel material all of their lenses are now made of. This technology allows more oxygen to reach the eye, providing longer, more comfortable wear.
Acuvue offers a wide variety of contact lenses to match the needs of most users, including those with astigmatism and presbyopia. Take a look at the various types of contact lenses Acuvue offers and see if there’s a pair that is right for you.
Acuvue 1 Day & 1 Day Moist
For contact lens wearers who dread the idea of cleaning and storing their lenses, Acuvue has the solution with their single day disposable 1 Day and 1 Day Moist lenses. Single day lenses are great for people who suffer from allergies, as a fresh lens each day prevents the usual build up of allergens and other irritants. The 1 Day lenses also offer UV protection, which is not a common feature among single day disposable lenses. The 1 Day Moist lenses are great for people with chronically dry eyes because, as their name suggests, they are infused with moisture. Both of these Acuvue 1 Day lenses come packaged 30 to a box.
Acuvue 2 Extended Wear Contact Lenses
Acuvue 2 are extended wear contacts that can be worn for up to two weeks if taken out at night or for a week if worn 24 hours a day. These lenses are known for being so comfortable that you forget you are wearing contacts at all. They also offer ample protection from ultraviolet light. Acuvue 2 lenses are packaged individually, six to a box. For those looking to add a little zip to their irises, there are also Acuvue 2 Color Enhancers, which naturally add some sparkle to your existing eye color. Acuvue 2 Color Enhancers are a bit more expensive, however.
Acuvue Advance and Advance for Astigmatism
Acuvue Advance contact lenses boast a unique silicon-hydrogel design and an advanced oxygenation system to not only provide hydration but also to allow oxygen to reach your cornea. The Acuvue Advance has a “123 indicator” to ensure the proper placement in your eye. These lenses are available six to a box.
For those with astigmatism, there is the Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism contact lens. This lens has the same features as the regular advance plus an Assisted Stabilization Design to keep lenses in place during blinking. These also come six to a box but the cost increases because of the special astigmatism design.
Acuvue Bifocal Contacts
With Acuvue Bifocal lenses, you can kiss your reading glasses goodbye forever. Their “Intelligent Design” has five seamless concentric zones that allow you to see both near and far away. These bifocal lenses also have an inside-out “123 indicator” to make sure you place them on your eye properly. Acuvue Bifocal Lenses come six to a box.
Acuvue makes three different types of their weekly disposable Oasys contact lenses. There are the regular ones, ones for Presbyopia and ones for Astigmatism. All are made with Acuvue’s patented Hydraclear Plus silicon-hydrogel technology which allows the lenses to stay moist all day long. The Oasys for Astigmatism are specially designed to help keep the lenses in place while blinking. The Oasys for Presbyopia is designed so that people suffering with this problem can see both close up and far away in any lighting conditions. All varieties of the Oasys contact lenses are packaged at six per box. The presbyopia and the astigmatism versions cost just moderately more than their regular counterparts.
If you’re the type of person who has always longed to turn their brown eyes blue (or vice versa), Acuvue Colour Opaques are the contact lenses for you. Available in 7 different colors, the Color Opaques change your eye color with a natural look. Because they are made mostly of water, they also do an excellent job of keeping your eyes moist. Acuvue Color Opaques are packaged at six per box.
