Johnson & Johnson Vision announced the US launch of Acuvue Vita brand contact lenses for astigmatism, a daily wear, monthly replacement contact lens with "Blink-Stabilized" design and "HydraMax Technology" for consistent, clear, stable vision with reliable, exceptional comfort.
Acuvue Vita brand for astigmatism is the newest addition to the Acuvue Vita family. Two-thirds of monthly spherical contact lens wearers report comfort-related issues, yet a majority (73%) do not tell their eye care professional about their comfort issues because many think it is normal and some even fear that their doctor might take them out of contact lenses, according to Johnson & Johnson Vision.
Acuvue Vita for astigmatism combines two technologies:
- HydraMax Technology is a non-coated silicone hydrogel formulation balanced to help maximize and maintain hydration throughout the lens for reliable, exceptional comfort – all month long. In a clinical study, more than 7 out of 10 wearers reported that Acuvue Vita for astigmatism delivers exceptional comfort at weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4.
- Blink-Stabilized" design works naturally with the eyelids, helping to keep the lens in the correct position. In a clinical study, 75% of wearers reported crisp, clear, stable vision, even with head and eye movements.
Acuvue Vita for astigmatism provides Class I UV protection, blocking approximately 93% of UVA and 99% of UVB rays.
