Just like the skin, a patient’s eyes can be harmed by UV radiation—and ACUVUE® scientists were inspired to help protect patients. That’s why every ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lens offers best-in-class UV Blocking*^ for Eye Health.
Every eye is different. We’re inspired by them all.
*Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.
^WARNING: 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. 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.
