People with astigmatism now have many alternative brands of contact lenses to choose from but Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism features many of the advanced solutions that are to be expected from the Acuvue family. Not only are they comfortable and excellent value but they also provide clear, crisp vision and the stability required for correcting astigmatism.
Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism are intended to be worn either on a daily basis and replaced after two weeks or, if your eye care professional agrees, on an extended wear basis for up to six nights and then replaced. The lenses are made from silicone hydrogel (senofilcon A) which has very high oxygen permeability and this ensures your eyes stay healthy and the lenses remain comfortable.
Astigmatism is the result of an irregular shaped cornea, which reflects light onto two separate points at the back of the eye and not a single point as usual. It is for this reason that stability is vital for contact lenses that correct astigmatism because they need to be correctly aligned in order to correct two powers as opposed to a single power. Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism lenses feature a design feature called Accelerated Stabilization Design and in simple terms this means there are four areas of stability that work in conjunction with the natural pressure from your eyelid so that the lenses are aligned with each blink.
Johnson & Johnson have pioneered another special technology called Hydraclear technology and this is the secret behind the additional comfort because this technology works in conjunction with the silicone hydrogel and works through the addition of a wetting agent to the material itself so smoothness and moisture are actually built into the lens.
The lenses are not only comfortable but also offer protection against harmful UV radiation as they come with a UV blocker. Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism are classified as class 1, which means the average amount of protection they offer against UV-A and UV-B radiation is 90% and 99%, respectively. The lenses also have other features to facilitate handling and insertion, such as visibility tint and 1-2-3 marking.
