1-DAY ACUVUE MOIST versus Biotrue ONEday1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST and Biotrue ONEday are two daily disposable contact lenses provided by Johnson and Johnson Vision Care and Bausch & Lomb. While Biotrue ONEday is a non-silicone hydrogel based lens, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST's base material utilizes the ionic hydrogel Etalfilcon A. And while both lenses feature class 2 UV blocking, it is the Biotrue ONEday that provides a much higher oxygen transmission value. Comparing the two lenses, Biotrue ONEday's oxygen transmission value is 42Dk/t compared to 33Dk/t of the 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST.
