*All ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses have Class 1 or Class 2 UV-blocking to help provide protection against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. UV transmission measured with -1.00D lens.

Packing solution contains boric acid and disodium tetraborate (sodium borate) to control the pH of the solution.

IRRITATION OUT

UV transmission graph

Most wearers stop using contact lenses because of dryness symptoms, discomfort or irritation.4

Proven etafilcon A lens material attracts and retains the protein Lysozyme in its natural state, as shown in vitro to help maintain a relatively low level of the inflammatory biomarkers secreted by the corneal ephithelium that can lead to irritation.5

 

LOW MODULUS

Allows the lens to conform comfortably to the eye.6

INFINITY EDGE™ DESIGN

CLASS 2 UV PROTECTION

UV transmission graph

1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST provides Class 2 UV protection, which blocks 98.8% UVB and 85.1% UVA rays,** helping to protect your patients eyes against harmful UV radiation all year round.

 

And that’s not all

A new year-long study of performance under everyday wearing conditions confirms the exceptionally low adverse response rate8 with 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST. Over the equivalent of 471 years of patient wear, wearers of 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST had no serious or infiltrative events and only three non-significant contact lens-related events.

1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST also meets the open-eye oxygen needs of the central cornea. In a new corneal swelling investigation, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST wearers showed less than 1.5% corneal swelling across the cornea and comparable to no lens wear.8

With 9/10 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST wearers satisfied with their lenses overall,9 you can seize the opportunity to grow your business and prescribe 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST with confidence.
