ACUVUE CONTACT LENSES: FEATURED TECHNOLOGY
HYDROGEL & SILICONE HYDROGELS
Contact lenses have evolved since the early installments made out of glass. ACVUVUE contact lenses are manufactured out of hydrogels and Silicone hydrogel. This allows the lens to deliver higher percentages of oxygen to the eyes. Some of the ACUVUE contact lenses, when worn, are capable of allowing close to 98% of the available oxygen to reach the eye. ACUVUE contact lenses are made out of four major types of hydrogels; Senofilcon A, Galyfilcon A, Etafilcon A and Nerafilcon B.
The LACERON technology functions by creating a soft cushion of moisture over the lens. This reduces almost 50% the amount of friction found with other lenses. The LACERON technology ensures that the moisture remains in place even when you blink, allowing the eyelids to glide naturally over the lens. The LACERON technology also optimizes the wettablity of the lens by adding the wetting agent directly to the lens formula. This ensures that it remains in place all through the day and is not lost gradually - as is common with other lens makes.
ACUVUE contact lenses offered with this technology include
- 1 DAY ACUVUE MOIST
- 1 DAY ACUVUE MOIST (for Astigmatism)
Acuvue's HYDRACLEAR and HYDRACLEAR PLUS are first and second generation technologies that increase the wetness of the lenses with the addition of a unique hydrophilic agent. The enhanced moistness factor allows the lens to rest naturally against the eyes, mimicking the sensation of tears. ACUVUE lenses offer better wetness than many other models. The results are so natural that people may actually feel like they are not wearing any lens.
BLINK STABLIZED DESIGN
Acuvue contact lenses improve on the standard ballast design with the company's proprietary BLINK STABLIZED design. The Blink stabilized design offers four different stability zones instead of the lone zone offering found with BALLAST designs. This ensures that the lens stays in the right position even with constant blinking; Acuvue's BLINK STABLIZED design is also not as affected by gravity. Users are therefore able to enjoy a wider range of movement including lying down.
