ACUVUE VITA versus BAUSCH+LOMB ULTRAACUVUE® VITA® from Johnson & Johnson Vision Care is a monthly replaceable soft contact lens - just like the Bausch+Lomb ULTRA. Both lenses need to be taken out at night, so you won't be able to sleep in them. Made with a silicone hydrogel lens material, these two lenses come with similar water content and a high level of oxygen transmission. And while ACUVUE® VITA® provides UVA and UVB blocking (Class 1), you won't find this feature in the Bausch+Lomb ULTRA. ACUVUE® VITA® is also available with two base curves, giving your eye doctor more options in the fitting process. The daily cost per eye is almost identical. If your eye doctor is offering both, ask for trialing both lenses so you can determine which lens is more comfortable before purchasing a larger supply.
