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).

In other words: Hydraclear works by incorporating a wetting agent into the lens material, which helps to attract and retain water molecules. This helps to keep the lenses moist and comfortable throughout the day, even in situations where the eyes may be dry or exposed to dry environments. In addition, the wetting agent used in Hydraclear helps to reduce friction between the lens and the eye, which can also contribute to improved comfort.

Johnson & Johnson Vision claims that the Hydraclear technology can help to reduce feelings of dryness, irritation, and discomfort associated with contact lens wear. It is also said to help improve the overall clarity and visual acuity of the lenses. If you are interested in a contact lens product with Hydraclear technology, consult with an eye care professional to determine whether it is the right choice for you.
