Why Do People Prefer Acuvue Contact Lenses Over Other Lenses?

By Ashish Jain

Ask a contact lens wearer what is the bane of his or her life and the answer will come pat. It is the

daily grind of removing the contact lenses each night and maintaining a regular routine of cleaning the
contact lenses to ensure their efficacy is not compromised. Thus the discovery of the Acuvue contact
lens has been welcomed by contact lens wearers with open arms.

The arrival of the Acuvue contact lens, first introduced in the late eighties by the firm of Johnson and
Johnson, made international headlines as they promised the wearer freedom from the daily grind of
contact lens maintenance as its primary advantage. The Acuvue contact lens is the first disposable
contact lens to hit the market and has remained on top of the charts in the field of contact lens
research and manufacturing.

The disposable contact lens better known as the Acuvue contact lens can be changed daily and allows
the wearer the joy of wearing a fresh pair of lenses each morning. Thus there are no messy solutions
to be dealt with and no time to be wasted in carefully cleaning out those thin pieces of plastic or glass.

Then with the ongoing research in the field of Acuvue contact lenses in place, these lenses now come
fitted with ultra violet ray protection, giving the wearer the advantage of eye protection even in the
outdoors.

The makers of this lens have also gone into ensuring that Acuvue lens is handy and easily spotted on
the crowded dressing table, by making the lenses with a slight hint of tinting.

This clever scheme helps in locating and handling the Acuvue lenses even when one is not too tidy a
person or the dressing table in one's room is actually a place for equipping oneself for a role on stage,
chockfull of bottles and brushes, for completing make−up needs.

With so much in store, it did not take long for major manufacturers to switch over from making the
durable hard lenses to the Acuvue contact lenses. Today, this product is produced and marketed by
major manufacturers around the world and millions of users of contact lenses prefer to opt for the
easily disposable, maintenance free Acuvue lenses instead of all other brands of contact lenses.

                                                                                                             1

Lenses Available From Acuvue − A Review

By Michael Wright

The main product lines from Johnson & Johnson's contact lenses are Acuvue lenses. Today, people
try to avoid using glasses for their vision disabilities, and are keener to go for contact lenses. The
reasons for not using glasses vary from the habit of glasses of sliding down noses, to bending out of
shape, to changing styles, to not being able to participate in physical activities without their falling off.
People who have shifted to wearing contact lenses have spoken very highly of Acuvue contact lenses.

The Types of Acuvue Lenses

Acuvue lenses are soft contact lenses, both for daily, as well as for extended wear. The soft hydrophilic
lenses are made of water, and oxygen passes through to the eye. You can see better through them
and they are very comfortable in comparison to hard contact lenses. Your peripheral vision is not
distorted, as it would be by a glasses' frame.

There are four major types of Acuvue lenses:

Normal contact lenses for people who are near sighted or far sighted - those suffering from myopia or
hyperopia.

Contact lenses for those with astigmatism. These contact lenses compensate for the irregular shape of
the cornea.

Bifocal contact lenses for older people suffering from Presbyopia

Colored contact lenses available in a variety of colors. These are purely for cosmetic purposes for
people who want to change the color of their eyes. These are available as prescription lenses for
people with vision disabilities, as well as plain ones for people with 20/20 vision.

Acuvue contact lenses come with a variety of options, and are available through prescription from
optometrists, and other licensed eye care specialists. You have the choice of daily disposable Acuvue
contact lenses, which you need to change every day. Then there are the regular lenses that you put in
every morning and remove every night. These need to be cleaned and rinsed daily and replaced every
two weeks with a new pair. Acuvue lenses also have the flexible contacts that you can wear day in and
day out for a week - six nights and seven days - and then replaced.

Acuvue Contact Lenses


                                                                                                                2

Acuvue brands were the first disposable contact lenses available. A look at the various contact lenses
from the Acuvue brand:

1−Day Acuvue - These are disposable contact lenses for myopia and hyperopia, and are discarded
after a day's use. To keep the harmful ultra violet (UV) rays from harming you, they come with UV
protection. As these lenses have to be discarded daily, your eyes do not suffer from the proteins and
calcium build up that cause aggravation. These contact lenses come with a light blue visibility tint to


help you easily locate them in the solution.

They come with an average UV blocking of 82% of UVA and 97% of UVB. UVA is the radiation that
causes tanning and contributes to aging of the skin, whereas UVB radiation is responsible for sunburn,
aging of the skin, and the development of skin cancer. 1−Day Acuvue come in the power range of −
20.00D to + 20.00D.

Acuvue - These disposable contact lenses, for myopia and hyperopia, can last up to 1 to 2 weeks.
Either they can be worn continuously - day and night − for one week, or as daily wear up to 2 weeks -
that is they need to be removed at night. These are ultra thin and allow free passage of oxygen to the
eye. These too come with UV protection of 82% UVA and 97% UVB.

The daily wear Acuvue contact lenses come with a power range of − 20.00D to + 20.00D, and the
extended range lenses have − 20.00D to + 14.00D power range.

Acuvue Advance For Astigmatism - It is made with the patented Accelerated Stabilization Design and
Hydraclear moisture rich element. They are designed as a 1 to 2 week disposables, just as Acuvue.
These disposable lenses are designed to reduce the build up of deposits that irritate your eyes. These
come with a spherical power range from − 20.00D to + 20.00D, the cylindrical power range from −
0.25D to − 10.00D, and the axis from 2.5 degrees to 180 degrees. These lenses keep your eye
protected from the harmful UV radiation.

Acuvue Bifocal - Designed for patients suffering from presbyopia, these are also the 1 to 2 weeks
disposable type, made with the Pupil Intelligent Design. Like all Acuvue brand of contact lenses, they
too come with the visibility tint to help locate then easily in the solution, and with the UV protection.

The daily wear Acuvue bifocal contact lenses come with a power range of − 20.00D to + 20.00D, and
the extended range lenses have − 20.00D to + 14.00D power range.

All lenses available from Acuvue, including Acuvue® Brand Toric, Acuvue® 2 ColourSTM brand,
Acuvue® 2 brand, Acuvue® OasysTM brand, and the Acuvue® AdvanceTM brand, come with the quality
expected from it.

The lenses from Acuvue are the most prescribed brand of contact lenses at present, and are highly
popular. At present, there are two types of hydrogel - traditional and silicon hydrogel. The former ones
keep the eyes moist and are comfortable to wear, but do not allow enough passage of oxygen. The
latter types, allow adequate amount of oxygen to pass, but are not comfortable.


                                                                                                            3

This is where the Acuvue Advanced brand has taken a leap forward with the use of Hydraclear - a new
material. This moisture rich product allows more than three times the oxygen, as compared to the
traditional hydrogel, to pass through to the eyes.

If you are a person who spends a lot of time in front of the computer, then Acuvue Advanced lenses
are the ones for you. As most people in front of their computers blink less than they ought to, their eyes
dry up faster, and your contact lenses give a scratchy feeling. The use of hydraclear in Acuvue
Advanced takes care of the feeling of dryness, and you are more comfortable at your workstation.
