Launched in 2005, Acuvue Oasys contact lenses are suitable for those who are short- or long-sighted and who want silky smooth lenses that are replaced on a two-weekly basis. Acuvue contact lenses have gained a reputation for innovative contact lens technologies that ensure the wearer is almost unaware that they are wearing lenses. The same is true of Acuvue Oasys.
Acuvue Oasys lenses have been designed for daily wear and a two-week replacement schedule, although if your eye care professional considers it appropriate they are also suitable for extended wear and can be worn for up to six nights before being replaced. The lenses are made from a silicone hydrogel material called senofilcon A. The properties of silicone hydrogel allow very high levels of oxygen to pass through and reach the eye, which is important for ensuring eye health as well as comfort.
Johnson & Johnson have also pioneered a technology called Hydraclear, which works in combination with the silicone hydrogel by embedding a wetting agent into the material itself. Acuvue Oasys contact lenses feature Hydraclear Plus, which is second generation technology and has a greater amount of wetting agent. This results in an ultra smooth lens that has less friction and is therefore optimal for people who work in dry environments, such as air conditioned offices.
Common with other lenses in the Acuvue family, Acuvue Oasys also has a UV blocker and comes under Class 1, meaning that the lenses block at least 96% and 99% of UV-A and UV-B radiation respectively. Other useful handling details for the user include a visibility tint and a 1-2-3 mark to make sure the lenses are inserted the correct way. With powers ranging from -12.00D to +8.00D, Acuvue Oasys offers a high quality lens.
