Acuvue Oasys are silicone-hydrogel contact lenses manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. Acuvue Oasys are made with patented Hydraclear Plus which makes contacts so smooth and moist, like the natural eye, it feels almost like you're not wear contacts at all. Higher oxygen transmission built into ultra-smooth, more moisture in the lens means extra comfort and less lens dryness, even in tough surroundings that might dry out other lenses. Acuvue Oasys are FDA-approved for overnight wear (up to one week). And Acuvue Oasys helps protect against the direct and reflected rays that pass through the cornea into your eye, blocking up to 82% of UV-A radiation and 97% of UV-B radiation.
Acuvue Oasys are tinted for ease of handling and will not change the color of your eye. The tint is simply designed to facilitate locating the contact lenses in solution. These contact lenses contain an inside-out "AV" indicator to help ensure proper application/insertion.

1-Day Acuvue TruEye is the world's FIRST daily disposable contact lens that comes in a new breathable silicone hydrogel material called Narafilcon A - an innovative silicone hydrogel material saturated with a locked-in super smooth wetting agent which does not slow release onto the eye. Narafilcon A delivers 98% oxygen flux to the cornea.
Narafilcon A is a new silicone hydrogel material being used in Johnson & Johnson's new daily disposable lens 1-Day Acuvue TruEye. With a Dk of 100 and a Dk/t of 118 it increases oxygen flow and allows the cornea to breathe naturally through the material. As a result, lenses that are manufactured utilizing this material, promise better wearing comfort and fewer dry eyes.
Acuvue's new TruEye contact lenses are truly remarkable as patients will regain incredible white eyes and comfort at the end of the day because the super wet and super smooth surface has the lowest friction coefficient of any daily disposable lens on the market today - even exceeding 1-Day Acuvue Moist. This is great news for contact lens wearers experiencing pink eyes after a long day.
This new lens is now available in Europe but not release in US yet.
