1-DAY ACUVUE TruEye versus ACUVUE OASYSHow does ACUVUE OASYS® compare to the world's first daily disposable silicone hydrogel lens 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye®?
A look at the spec sheets reveals that these two lenses from Johnson and Johnson Vision Care are quite similar - except for the material and the replacement schedule. While ACUVUE OASYS® is a biweekly replaceable silicone hydrogel lens that can be worn up to 6 consecutive nights, you have the benefit with 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® to start with a fresh pair of lenses every day. That means no cleaning routine, cleaning solution, and storage container. With our busy lifestyles, going with a daily replaceable lens is the preferred choice for many of us.

ACUVUE OASYS® and 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® are both silicone hydrogel lenses with identical UV blocking, similar prescription parameters, stiffness, and lens thickness. Both lenses have a built-in wetting agent to increase the water content and improve wearing comfort. The oxygen transmission value of ACUVUE OASYS® is about 25% higher than the value seen for 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye®. This also explains the extended wearing modality of ACUVUE OASYS®. In general, daily replaceable lenses are more expensive than weekly or monthly lenses and so is the case here. If you're budget conscious, ACUVUE OASYS® might be the better choice for you (but always discuss with your eye care practitioner).
