A way to see without limits for your astigmatic patients

Johnson & Johnson Vision discusses the benefits of its ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM

Did you know that nearly half of patients that need vision correction have astigmatism in at least one eye?1 With ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM they can experience clear, stable vision through the day.2

Research shows unsatisfactory vision and comfort are the most common reasons for drop-out for astigmatic contact lens wearers.3 ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM works in harmony with the natural tears of the eye and gives excellent comfort and consistent, clear, stable vision all day long.4,5

Introducing ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM

ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM combines two technologies to provide excellent comfort and consistent, clear, stable vision all day long.2,5

EYELID STABILISED DESIGN

The lens harnesses the power of natural eyelid movements to help align and stabilise the lens,5 with four unique stabilisation zones that work with the eyelids to help keep the contact lens in place.5 This technology helps provide consistent, clear, stable vision resistant to the effect of gravity, for example due to head tilt.6

TEAR INSPIRED DESIGN

ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day for ASTIGMATISM also features HydraLuxeTM Technology which has a unique Tear Inspired Design that mimics the natural properties of the tears, helping to stabilise the tear film.5,7
