Every Eye is Different. We’re Inspired by Them All.

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

Acuvue Eye Tear Inspired Icon



Inspired by the structure and function of the natural tear-film, ACUVUE® soft contact lenses are embedded with long-chain PVP to mimic tear film mucins to help infuse and maintain moisture and integrate natural tear film components.**,2,3,4

Acuvue Eye Inspired Pupil Opt Icon



Inspired by the natural eye and pupil size in relation to age and refractive error, Johnson & Johnson scientists created 183 pupil-optimized designs to match the presbyoptic pupil size as it changes across the refractive error and age ranges.5

Acuvue Eye Inspired UV Blocking Icon



Inspired by the effects of UV radiation on the eye, Johnson & Johnson scientists created a contact lens portfolio that incorporates high-levels of UV blocking into every lens to help protect eyes from the transmission of harmful UV radiation.6*^

Acuvue Eye Inspired Blink Stabilized Icon



Inspired by ocular anatomy and the need for astigmats to maintain clear, stable vision, the scientists at Johnson & Johnson developed a BLINK STABILIZED® design, that helps keep the lens in place, even with extensive eye and head movements.7

Acuvue Eye Inspired Invisible Edge Icon



Inspired by the anatomy of the eye and eyelid. Johnson & Johnson scientists created consistently thin edges on ACUVUE® soft contact lenses so that the eyelids glide over them as if nothing is there.4

Acuvue Eye Inspired Antioxidants Icon



Inspired by the individual components of the eye’s tear film, Johnson & Johnson scientists have harnessed the power of antioxidants and infused them into ACUVUE® contact lenses. Antioxidants help protect the ocular environment from oxidative effects that may contribute to discomfort in contact lens wearing patients.8

As the contact lens most trusted by Eye Care Professionals,*** ACUVUE® designs every contact lens with EYE-INSPIRED INNOVATIONS to delight your patients. EYE-INSPIRED INNOVATIONS from ACUVUE® help you bring a more personalized experience with your patients – and changes how they see their world. That’s because every ACUVUE® lens is inspired by and works with the natural eye, coupled with a deep understanding of vision care patients and their challenges. Every eye is different. We’re inspired by them all.

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

^WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.
