When 1-Day Acuvue daily disposable contact lenses were launched in 1995 they were the world’s first daily disposable contact lens. Since then millions have used 1-Day Acuvue lenses and have come to rely on the flexibility and convenience they provide since you start your day with a fresh pair and just throw them away when you are finished with them. The obvious benefits include no need to think about how and where to store and clean them.
1-Day Acuvue is being phased out of stock in favour of 1-Day Acuvue Moist made of the same material Etafilcon A, but with additional wetting agent technology.
1-Day Acuvue lenses correct both short- and long-sightedness and are made from a comfortable hydrogel material called etafilcon A. The lenses have a water content of 58% and allow 88% of the available oxygen to reach the eye. This is significant because eyes need oxygen to stay healthy and this combination of moisture and oxygen is the secret to comfort of 1-Day Acuvue lenses.
In addition to the convenience of a daily disposable contact lens, 1-Day Acuvue lenses also protect your eyes in other ways since they also have a UV blocker. They come under Class 2, which means they provide protection from both UV-A and UV-B radiation. They come in a range of powers from -12.00 to +6.00D. The lenses come in handy packs of 30 or 90 and by using our contact lenses price comparison, you will find the cheapest deals online.
Since their launch, Acuvue have brought out a range of other daily disposable contact lenses, so fans of 1-Day Acuvue may also want to ask your eye care professional about 1-Day Acuvue Moist or 1-Day Acuvue TruEye.
