Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with Hydralux Lenses to be released May 2016

Posted on 27 April 2016

Johnson & Johnson is releasing their latest Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with Hydralux contact lens in 15th May 2016. The lens is designed to be used on a daily replacement regime which means there is no cleaning or lens care necessary. It is designed on J&J's latest material which is called Senofilcon A. This material features their Hydralux technology which according to J&J is "a tear infused design with an enhanced network of tear like molecules that integrates with your own tear film". This is not a surface coating but is actually uniform within the matrix of the contact lens. This means that the lens will maintain its lubrication all day.

Featuring a UV inhibitor the lens will also protect the ocular surface from ultraviolet light and is certified class I UV blocking. This means the lens will block over 90% of UVA and over 99% of UVB light. It features an enlarged optical zone which means improved vision in suboptimal lighting conditions such as night driving.

Features in summary:
  • Daily replacement
  • UV protection
  • Increased optic zone for night driving
  • Hydralux technology to maintain lubrication
