A comparison of ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY and Clariti 1 Day - two daily disposable silicone hydrogel lenses. What are the differences? Detailed up-to-date specifications shown side by side: material, parameters, special features, and daily cost.

Comparison Highlights

  • Clariti 1 Day features an aspherical design for reduced spherical aberration, halos and glare.
  • Both lenses offer UV protection, however, ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY is a Class-1 lens while Clariti 1 Day achieves Class-2 protection.
  • ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY outperforms Clariti on oxygen transmission with a 50% higher Dk/t value when compared to Clariti 1 Day. But that also translates into a higher water content for the Clariti lens. As with all silicone hydrogel lenses, manufacturers try to balance breathability and moisture retention and one higher/lower value doesn't necessarily mean one is better than the other (after all, our eyes all respond differently to various materials and technical parameters).
  • With Clariti 1 Day you look at a 5-10% lower daily cost compared to the ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY (which is in the $0.87 - $0.97 range).
  • Both lenses are popular and time-tested silicone hydrogel lenses that you can get prescribed at a reasonable cost when compared to other high-end daily disposable lenses.
