Acuvue Oasys with HYDRACLEAR PLUS contact lenses were first launched by Johnson and Johnson Vision Care in 2005. Since their introduction, Oasys has been widely accepted by both patients and practitioners for providing exceptional comfort, vision, and health. Acuvue's newest lens, Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe, holds great potential to improve upon this winning formula.
First off, Oasys 1-Day contact lenses are worn just one day before being thrown away. 1-day contact lenses represent a significant paradigm shift in how we think about contact lens wear in the United States. At first this may seem wasteful to wear the lens only one time, but this ensures a fresh sterile product each time you wear it. When is the last time you have re-used your dental floss?
1-Day contact lenses are especially beneficial for teenagers who may not clean their lenses well, allergy sufferers and those who only wear contact lenses for special occasions. The truth is, daily contact lenses are very beneficial from both a convenience and health standpoint.
Health is another aspect where this lens excels over previous generations of lenses. Compared to Acuvue's prior daily lenses, 1-Day Moist and 1-Day TruEye, 1-Day Oasys is much more breathable for the eye. This factor known as Dk/t is 4.5 times higher in 1-Day Oasys vs. 1-Day Moist. This means Oasys 1-Day allows more oxygen to your eyes to help prevent infection and dryness.
1-Day Oasys offers hope for preventing dryness related to contact lens wear. Acuvue marketing materials describe the lens as having a tear infused design that mimics mucins to help support a stable tear film. Mucins are proteins secreted by the tissue of your eyes. Mucins function to protect the eye and prevent it from drying out. In this way, Acuvue's newest lens is designed to function in harmony with your eye's physiology!
Modern Optometry is one of the first providers to offer this lens. Dr. Schutte will perform a Comprehensive Eye Exam and Contact Lens Evaluation to determine if this lens is right for you. Furthermore, if you are a good candidate, you will be able to try these lenses before purchasing a year supply.
Modern Optometry is conveniently located in Fairfax, Virginia in the neighborhood of Fair Lakes. We are in the shopping center near the Whole Foods grocery store and easily accessible from Route 66 and The Fairfax County Parkway (State Route 286).
Schedule your eye exam now to avoid the end of year rush to use your benefits. Remember that flex spending and health savings accounts may be used for yearly supplies of contacts and prescription eyewear.
