J&J Introduces New Contact Lens with a Tear-Infused Design

Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., will launch of a new contact lens with a tear-infused design, called Acuvue Oasys Brand Contact Lenses 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology. The company notes that contact lens performance declines throughout the day for most wearers. The decline correlates with the number of activities the wearer performs. A full day of activities can lead to eye fatigue or the feeling of tired eyes, according to research. The new lens helps minimize this fatigue, using the following four advances:
  • Tear-infused material, complementing the natural tear film with an enhanced network of tear-like molecules, that integrates with contact lens wearers’ own tear film each day
  • Electrolyte-balanced packaging solution to mimic human tears
  • Enlarged optics to help wearers to see clearly even when their pupils may be enlarged due to low-light
  • Increased lens diameter to ensure full corneal limbus coverage during blinking.
Peter Shen, vice president for J&J Vision Care's Worldwide Research & Development, notes that tears provide smooth optical surface, oxygen to the cornea, and lubrication.  He added, "The tear-like molecules in Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with HydraLuxe Technology mimic mucins, which lubricate and moisturize the eye and help support a stable tear film even through our most demanding days.”
