A comparison of CooperVision's Avaira and ACUVUE OASYS® from Johnson and Johnson Vision Care Inc.
ACUVUE OASYS® and Avaira are two time-proven, bi-weekly replaceable silicone hydrogel contact lenses. Both lenses cover a broad vision correction range in the plus and minus powers. While Avaira is a daily wear lens, ACUVUE OASYS® can be worn overnight and up to 7 consecutive days. ACUVUE OASYS® is also approved as a bandage lens to relieve discomfort and as a protective bandage with certain eye conditions. Both lenses feature UV protection and use a wetting agent to increase the amount of water stored in the lens. Prices for a 3 month supply are similar and when compared to daily replaceable lenses, are significantly lower.
Avaira and ACUVUE OASYS® are two time-proven and affordable bi-weekly lenses. Avaira comes with a slightly higher water content but points to ACUVUE OASYS® for better UV blocking. If you are looking for a toric or presbyopic version, you can choose from both brands.
