ACUVUE OASYS 1-DAY vs ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY

Created: Jul 26, 2022

A comparison of ACUVUE OASYS 1-DAY and ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY. What are the differences? Detailed specifications and features shown side by side with a comparison of material, technical parameters, prescription parameters, special features, and daily cost.

Comparison Highlights

  • ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY is the newest addition to the OASYS 1-DAY family (available in the fall of 2022).
  • The base material and water content are identical, and the oxygen transmission is almost the same (121 Dk/t vs 122 Dk/t for the MAX).
  • Both lenses offer Class-1 UVA and UVB protection. ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY also features High Energy Visible Light (HEVL) absorption. (So far, we have only seen this feature in the Dailies Total1 for Astigmatism).
  • Johnson & Johnson Vision Care added two new technologies to the MAX version. We assume this will include the hydration technology (an updated version of Hydraclear for the MAX lenses) with improved distribution of the wetting agent on the lens surface. This points to a more comfortable lens and we are looking forward to the ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY raising the bar in the OASYS product line. (We'll confirm parameters and missing specs once Johnson & Johnson releases additional information)

The Bottom Line

Johnson & Johnson Vision Care continues upgrading its ACUVUE OASYS 1-DAY contact lens line with a highly breathable daily-disposable lens promising even more and longer-lasting comfort when compared to the regular ACUVUE OASYS 1-DAY. We can't wait for the first patient reviews once this new (MAX) version is available in the fall (spherical and multifocal).
