Technology behind the lens

Introducing the unique ASD Technology 

Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD) Technology is only found in ACUVUE® contact lenses for ASTIGMATISM. It uses four stabilisation zones to deliver clear and stable vision throughout the day with minimal impact from eye or head movements of your patients, no matter how active their lifestyle may be. 1,2

  • Lenses are orientated quickly by harnessing the natural pressures of a blinking eye. ASD balances the lens in place and quickly realigns it if it rotates out of position

  • Minimal variation of lens thickness under both eyelids, which helps maintain clear and stable vision regardless of eye movements1,2,3

  • Less influenced by gravity so your patients can experience clear and stable vision regardless of their physical activities and head movements1-4

Ease of fit

Minimal effort has never been so rewarding 

ACUVUE® contact lenses for ASTIGMATISM are fast and easy to fit, giving you the same confidence as when fitting spherical lenses and minimising chair time.1,2 In fact, 85% of lenses are orientated within ±5° of zero position after a three-minute settling period1 and Eye Care Professionals have recorded a first fit success rate of 95%.2,3

Research has shown that after one month, 90% of Eye Care Professionals found the fitting of ASD lenses fast and easy and were satisfied with the lens's predictable orientation and rotational stability.1

  • 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST and ACUVUE OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses accommodate up to 97% of spherical and astigmatic eyes4

  • 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST for ASTIGMATISM offers the widest range of parameters of any daily disposable toric

Vision Benefits

The only thing worse than a blur, is a blur that's constantly changing

For toric lenses to maintain clear vision throughout the day, they need to stay in place.

ACUVUE®'s Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD) lets your patients enjoy crisp, sharp vision, regardless of head and eye movements. The result? Visual acuity as good as spectacles and clear vision throughout the day.1,2

Now your patients can capture every detail around them.

ASD Technology: removing the blur of astigmatism

ACUVUE®'s ASD Technology enables your patients to have stable and crystal clear vision without the blur of astigmatism.

Comfort benefits

Two exceptional technologies, one clear benefit: comfort 

All ACUVUE® contact lenses for ASTIGMATISM offer their own built-in wetting agents that aren't blinked away.1,2

So whether your patient prefers daily disposable or reusable lenses, they can experience exceptional levels of comfort.
