A comparison of ACUVUE OASYS® and Bausch + Lomb ULTRA: What's the difference?
Johnson and Johnson Vision Care revealed ACUVUE OASYS® back in 2005 while the Bausch+Lomb ULTRA was introduced almost 10 years later in 2014. The ULTRA comes with an exceptional ability to let oxygen pass through the lens. Its value of 163 Dk/t compares to 147 Dk/t in the OASYS - and the latter one is still a very good value. Both lenses use a PVP-based wetting agent to bind and hold water and to increase comfort. While the initial water content of the ULTRA is higher than the one in the OASYS, OASYS features Class 1 UV blocking, something the ULTRA lacks. Don't be confused when looking at the price difference for a 6-lens box, as ACUVUE OASYS is a bi-weekly lens while a Bausch+Lomb ULTRA lens lasts for an entire month. Hence we need to look at the total cost per day, and as such, the price difference is small, with a tiny advantage for the ULTRA.
