What are patients really experiencing with their contact lenses?

Discomfort icon
  • ~ 2/3 of contact lens wearers experience a decline in performance (comfort, vision & satisfaction) throughout the day.5,6
  • 62% experience a decline in comfort specifically.5,6

What is the reason for such common poor lens experiences?

We blink more than 14,000x/day 

  • Wearing a contact lens, coupled with a full day of activities, can destabilize a patient’s tear film.7-10
  • This will lead to increased friction with the eyelids, which can negatively impact comfort.11
  • Since tears act as the natural & ideal lubricant for our eyes, a lens material that integrates key tear-like components & not just water, will help to address these negative lens experiences.3, 12-14

The lens innovation that is grounded in patients’ experiences and lifestyles

ACUVUE OASYS  1-Day with HydraLuxe box

  • ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day with HydraLuxe® Technology delivers exactly that with the proprietary tear-inspired lens that has an enhanced network of embedded mucin-like molecules designed to mimic the natural tears for all-day comfort. 3-4
  • This helps to evenly spread all the layers of the tear film, promoting a consistently smooth, lubricious, & stable refractive surface3-4

vs Dailies Total1®. JJV Data on File 2015. Statistical superiority on Handling composite scores achieved using the Contact Lens User Experience (CLUE) questionnaire, a validated patient-reported outcomes (PRO) tool. In a randomized, masked, crossover clinical study (2015, n=119) patients were randomly assigned ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day with HydraLuxe® Technology or Dailies Total1® the first week and switched to wearing the other lens the second week. Lenses were worn as daily disposable on both eyes.

Backed by scientific data and material property characteristics

  • Lower coefficient of friction (CoF) is associated with increased soft contact lens comfort.11
  • 93% lower CoF for ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day than DAILIES TOTAL1® after 18h of simulated wear2

coefficient of friction of ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day is comparable to the natural cornea (no lens wear).

  • CoF of ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day is comparable to the natural cornea (no lens wear).15

Backed by clinical performance data and strong track record

Comfort

  • In 29 clinical studies published on clinicaltrials.gov, the ACUVUE® OASYS Brand Family of lenses has never been beaten in comfort.*
  • The ACUVUE® OASYS Brand Family of lenses provides superior comfort while using digital screens. 16
Contrast icon

Vision

  • ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day improves contrast sensitivity up to 30%†17

Finally, let’s hear what our patients have to say about their lens experiences...
