Introduced in 2008, 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® was the world's first daily disposable silicone hydrogel based contact lens, manufactured using a new breathable material called Narafilcon. Arafilcon is an innovative silicone hydrogel material saturated with a locked-in super smooth wetting agent which does not slow release onto the eye. Narafilcon delivers 98% oxygen flux to the cornea.
These contact lenses (for additional pictures click here) are truly remarkable as patients will regain incredible white eyes and comfort at the end of the day because the super wet and super smooth surface has the lowest friction coefficient of any daily disposable lens on the market today - even exceeding 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST. This is great news for contact lens wearers experiencing dry and itchy eyes after a long day.
Note: ACUVUE® TruEye® is available in many countries in Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific Rim.
