ACUVUE TruEye versus Clariti 1 Day1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® and Clariti 1 Day were the first daily disposable contact lenses with a silicone hydrogel material. They were introduced in 2008/2009 marking the beginning of a new age in the contact lens world. Since their introduction, silicone hydrogel based lenses that can be tossed at the end of the day, have gained huge popularity with patients around the world. While 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® is available for the correction of short- or farsightedness, Clariti 1 Day is also available for astigmatism and presbyopia.

Both lenses are available for the most common prescription parameters in the range from -8.00D to +6.00D. Clariti 1 Day also covers prescriptions for extreme farsightedness from +6.00D to +8.00D while 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® is an alternative for patients with strong shortsightedness from -10.00D to -12.00D.
A slightly lower modulus and a smaller center thickness make the aspherical Clariti 1 Day a bit softer (at least on paper). On the other hand, Trueye is a more breathable lens with a higher oxygen transmission value; the Dk/t value of 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® is 118 compared to the 86 of Clariti 1 Day. Both lenses offer UVA and UVB protection. With 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® being a Class 1 UV blocking lens and Clariti 1 Day being a Class 2 lens, ACUVUE® TruEye® has a small advantage here. Keep in mind, that UV blocking contacts cannot replace your sunglasses!
