1-Day Acuvue TruEye: The First Silicone Hydrogel Daily Disposable Lens in the U.S.

PageImage206978Vistakon has launched 1-Day Acuvue TruEye daily disposable contact lenses, made of narafilcon B, a silicone hydrogel material just approved by the FDA. Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are known for their ability to allow oxygen to reach the eye; this, combined with the daily disposable modality, provides a potentially high level of eye health to contact lens wearers.
The lenses also contain Hydraclear 1, which supplies a moisture-rich wetting agent to help maintain comfort throughout the day.

In a 94-subject study, after one month people wearing 1-Day Acuvue TruEye showed no significant effect of the wear on the surface of their eyes, compared with non-contact lens wearers, in five of six contact lens-related measures associated with eye health. The lenses also provided high comfort levels all day, comparable to wearing no lenses.

1-Day Acuvue TruEye lenses also offer the highest level of UV protection in a contact lens, according to Vistakon, which is a division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care.
