Introducing ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ Light Intelligent Technology™

Every day, consumers struggle to manage the impact of bright light - indoors and outdoors.  ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ Light Intelligent Technology™ represents an entirely new category of contact lenses that seamlessly adapts to changing light, working to reduce exposure to bright light indoors and out, filtering blue light and blocking UV rays. This course will show you how this first-if-its kind contact lens was developed based on deep insights into consumer needs, demonstrate the unique benefits for your patients, and explore how your discussions with patients can go beyond visual acuity and consider visual performance/comfort as well. This course is not eligible for CET points.
