Like 1-DAY ACUVUE TruEye®, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care's ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY is a high-performance silicone hydrogel contact lens. They are both made with a water-loving, hydrophilic material that has the ability to absorb water while the silicone hydrogel base material ensures a high level of oxygen transmissibility. This combination makes the lenses soft and comfortable so that the eyes can stay fresh. Introduced in 2009, 1-DAY ACUVUE TruEye® is using Narafilcon A, while ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY which was introduced in 2016, uses Senofilcon A, a material also found in the time-tested ACUVUE OASYS® product family. Both lenses feature Class-1 UVA and UVB blocking.
So, which lens is right for you? In looking at the spec sheet, you will notice that most parameters are very similar - even the average cost per day. You might want to discuss with your eye care practitioner whether you could try both lenses, as the main difference is in the material and the wetting agent technology. ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY enjoys the wetting technology HydraLuxe while 1-DAY ACUVUE TruEye® features HydraClear, a technology known to embed a high amount of a moisture-rich wetting agent.
