A comparison of ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY and MyDay daily disposable. What are the differences? Detailed up-to-date specifications shown side by side: material, parameters, special features, and daily cost.
ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY by Johnson and Johnson Vision Care and MyDay daily disposable by CooperVision are two silicone hydrogel, daily disposable contact lenses. Both lenses were launched less than three years ago and are the most recent lenses that Johnson and Johnson and CooperVision added to their portfolio of daily lenses. While ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY comes with a spherical lens design, CooperVision decided to adopt an aspherical lens design for the MyDay lens. Aspherical lens designs promise to reduce spherical aberration, resulting in improved vision, particularly at night. Johnson and Johnson made a clear commitment to UV blocking more than twenty years ago, so it's no surprise to find Class 1 UV Blocking in ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY. And so is the case with MyDay. CooperVision implemented Class 2 UV blocking in the MyDay product family. The initial water content of MyDay is 54% compared to 38% filed for ACUVUE OASYS® 1-DAY and both lenses feature their own proprietary wetting technology: Hydraluxe for ACUVUE OASYS® and the wetting-agent-free Smart Silicone technology for MyDay. The cost for ACUVUE OASYS® and MyDay is very similar. A three month supply (box with 90 lenses) costs around $78 to $90, additional rebates not included.
