Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism
Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism are bi-weekly toric contact lenses produced by Johnson & Johnson to correct astigmatism. They are a new generation of lenses, continuing in the tradition of Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism. The manufacturer affirms wearers may switch from Acuvue Advance to Acuvue Oasys without needing to visit an eye specialist if all parameters of the lenses remain the same (diopter, curve, cylinder, axis).
Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism have a high oxygen-permeability and remain perfectly stable on the eye. Just like their spheric version, Acuvue Oasys, Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism contact lenses are made from a highly permeable material, SENOFILCON B, and have 38% water content. Moreover, the lenses are equipped with the brand’s patented Hydraclear Plus technology, which keeps them moist and comfortable throughout the day.
The lenses’ Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD) technology provides consistent positioning of the contact lens on the eye. This technology uses eye blinking to maintain the lens’ correct cylindrical position on the eyeball. Each blink squeezes the lens into the correct position where its cylinder corrects the irregularity of the cornea.
Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism contacts are equipped with UV filters that block more than 95% UV-A and 99% UV-B radiation and protect the most important parts of eye. For better protection from UV radiation, however, it is always advisable to wear UV-blocking sunglasses when outside, in order to protect the entire eye area.
Approved for extended wear
Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism contact lenses are designed for a two-week wear cycle. They should be removed every evening and disinfected in a contact lens case with solution. The lenses are also approved for extended wear (up to seven days without removal), but only under the supervision of your eye-care specialist after a thorough eye examination. If used in this way, the lenses must be discarded after seven days.
