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 and is available since Sep 20, 2022.
  • The base material and water content are identical, and the oxygen transmission is the same with 121 Dk/t.
  • Both lenses offer Class-1 UVA and UVB protection. ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY also features OptiBlue Light Filter Technology for the filtering of High Energy Visible Light (HEVL). So far, we have seen HEVL filtering in two other lenses: ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions and DAILIES TOTAL1 for Astigmatism from Alcon.
  • Johnson & Johnson Vision Care provides two new technologies with the MAX version. In addition to the OptiBlue Light Filtering, TearStable Technology has been added to the ACUVUE OASYS MAX family. This improves tear stability and - according to Johnson & Johnson Vision Care- provides a much lower tear evaporation rate when compared to competitors.
  • A handful of online contact lens retailers are now offering ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY. Comparing the price of the MAX version to the ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY lens, it is apparent that early adopters have to reach much deeper into their pockets. Right now - and this might change as more retailers start offering this lens - ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-DAY is 50% more expensive than its non-Max sibling.

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).
