The Acuvue brand of contact lenses not only has a reputation for comfort and crisp vision but also innovation. These are brought together in Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism contact lenses so now astigmatics can benefit from the convenience and comfort of contact lenses. Astigmatism occurs when light is reflected onto two places instead of a single point on the retina due to an irregularity in the shape of the cornea, and this results in blurred vision.
The innovative technology that allows Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism to correct for this eye condition is called Accelerated Stabilization Design. To correct for astigmatism, a contact lens needs to have two powers and this is why the lens must be oriented correctly on the eye and remain stable. This is achieved by the unique four zones of stability that interact dynamically with your eyelid pressure to realign the lenses each time you blink.
Of course comfort is key to successful contact lens use and Johnson & Johnson have developed a system called Hydraclear technology where a wetting agent is mixed into the lens material itself, so locking in moisture as part of the lens design. Hydraclear technology also acts to reduce friction and contributes to the smoothness and comfort of Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism lenses.
The lenses are made from a silicone hydrogel called galyfilcon A and the properties of this material also contribute to the comfort of the lenses as they allow large amounts of oxygen to reach the eye. As with other contact lenses in the Acuvue family, they come with a visibility tint and 1-2-3 marking to help with handling and insertion. The range of powers is -9.00D to +6.00D and in addition the lenses are classified as Class 1 with respect to their UV blocking properties, so offer protection by blocking high levels of UV-A and UV-B radiation.
