ACUVUE OASYS for ASTIGMATISM Contacts

Introduced in June 2008, these lenses are specifically designed for people with astigmatism. Astigmatism is the most common vision problem, caused by an irregular shape of the cornea. Astigmatism can usually be corrected with contact lenses, such as ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM. They will help take away the blur that is caused by this condition.

These toric lenses come with HYDRACLEAR technology and UVA and UVB blocking which blocks more than 90 percent of UVA rays and 99 percent of UVB rays.

HYDRACLEAR ensures a long lasting soft, moisture rich and silky feel. In addition they have the same reduced edge-height design as ACUVUE® 2.

Features and Benefits of ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM

  • ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM contacts are easy-to-use and comfortable enough to wear for up to 7 consecutive days.

  • They are slightly tinted, so the lens is easier to recognize and handle plus a high level of UVA and UVB Blocking helps to protect portions of your eyes.

  • The HYDRACLEAR technology brings together a remarkable moisture rich wetting agent with high performance base materials to form clear, wettable lenses resulting in a unique, silky, soft feel.

  • ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM lenses stay moist all day and the soft and flexible material provides comfort throughout the day

  • The so called 'Accelerated Stabilization Design' is promising to balance the lens in place and quickly realigns the lens if it rotates out of position. It provides patients with astigmatism with consistent, all-day vision and comfort.

Who should consider ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM?

  • These lenses should be considered if you experience discomfort with your current contact lenses.

  • They are ideal for people who thought they could not wear contact lenses because of astigmatism.
