HYDRACLEAR® is a proprietary, patented technology that was developed by Johnson & Johnson Vision Care and has been applied to various ACUVUE® lenses. HYDRACLEAR® technology mixes a wetting agent into the lens formula itself, so the moisture is embedded through and through. This promises to keep the lenses smooth and silky. The lenses mimic the natural way your tears cover your eyes surface with the result of a smooth comfortable feeling. This is achieved by binding unique silicone polymers and long-chain water loving molecules (also known as a wetting agent).
