  • LACREON® Technology is a unique Dual Action Technology designed to keep moisture in and irritation out with an embedded wetting agent (PVP) that won’t blink away˅ or release over time.3,4,5
  • “An excellent safety profile”**1,2 , zero serious adverse events in a 1-year observational study
  • Unbeaten comfort when compared to other hydrogel daily disposable contact lenses** with a natural tear-like ingredient that won’t blink away5
  • The 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST family of lenses provides category-wide range of parameters to satisfy the vision needs of spherical, astigmatic, and presbyopic patients††6

*In a year-long observational/surveillance registry that relied on patient reports of symptomatic adverse events that would have led them to seek clinical care, no symptomatic infiltrative events or serious adverse events were reported. These results should be considered in conjunction with other clinical results on the safety and efficacy of daily disposable etafilcon A contact lenses, which also generally show low rates of such events. Although no symptomatic infiltrative events were reported in this study, such events can and have occurred with daily disposable lenses, including 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST, as noted in the product labelling.

** 14 clinical studies posted on, a website maintained by the NIH, evaluated subjective comfort as a primary or secondary endpoint for 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST brand family (spherical, astigmatism, and multifocal) contact lenses vs. competitors’ products. Published trials include comparisons between etafilcon A and nelfilcon A, omafilcon A, hilafilcon B, ocufilcon D and nesofilcon A. Review conducted as of October 31, 2023.

˅The release profile for PVP in 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST over 24 hours demonstrated no detectable amount of PVP released throughout the 24-hour simulated wear period.
§Oxygen transmissibility measured via polarographic method at center of a -3.00D lens using boundary-corrected, edge-corrected Dk values. Units: (cm/sec) (ml O2/ml x mm Hg) at 35°C.
†Class 2: Must transmit less than 50% (<50%) of UVA and 5% (<5%) of UVB. UV-blocking percentages ae based on an average across the wavelength spectrum.
††Based on publicly available manufacturer information as of March 2020

ᵒHelps 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.
