Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD)

Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD)

- ASD harnesses the natural pressures of a blinking eye on its four stabilisation zones to orientate lenses quickly and deliver clear and stable vision throughout the day2-4

- ASD lenses are minimally influenced by gravity and have negligible thickness variation under the eyelids, which helps maintain clear and stable vision regardless of eye movements, as well as providing your patients with a comfortable lens feeling2-4

- 8 out of 10 wearers agree their overall vision is better when wearing ACUVUE OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM than when wearing glasses5

With 11,000 blinks a day, in a year eyelids cover the distance of a marathon6

- The unique HYDRACLEAR® PLUS Technology creates an ultra-smooth lens surface that helps to prevent that tired eye feeling5

- HYDRACLEAR® PLUS Technology permanently locks a high volume of wetting agent inside the contact lens, creating a low coefficient of friction and an ultra-smooth surface

Ultra-smooth lens surface

- This ultra-smooth lens surface allows eyelids to glide easily over the lenses, providing a no-lens feeling and helping to keep eyes comfortable and free from feeling tired throughout the day5


Breathability image

Provides 98% of all available oxygen to the central cornea during daily wear.

Fresher is better

2 pairs per month

- 2 pairs per month for a

comfortable and healthy experience all round

- 8 out of 10 wearers say their lenses feel nicer when replaced 2-weekly versus a monthly lens after 4 weeks5


UV-blocker image

- Class 1 UV-blocking, the highest UV-blocking of all reusable toric contact lenses*

- Patients are concerned about protecting their eyes as well as skin7

*All ACUVUE ®  Brand Contact Lenses have Class 1 or Class 2 UV-blocking to help provide protection against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area.
