ACUVUE® contact lenses by Johnson & Johnson for nearly thirty years in the market!

With the innovation and quality that we have come to expect from Johnson & Johnson.

The ACUVUE® contact lenses brand from Johnson & Johnson has many years in the market. In fact, the ACUVUE lenses were already in development since the late fifties, but we only count from the time that Johnson & Johnson, through their Vistakon division, managed to turn the production process from manual to automated. ACUVUE® was the first soft contact lens made of the material etafilcon A. A seven-day disposable lens, launched for the general public in 1987. This was a great success and marked the beginning of a revolutionary growth in the use and development of the soft contact lens as we know it today.

Besides being the first one with the ACUVUE weekly lens, Johnson & Johnson was also the first to introduce the soft daily lens, the 1-DAY ACUVUE, in 1995. Then another first, with a bifocal soft contact lens in 1998, the ACUVUE BIFOCAL, and among one of the first with a toric soft contact lens in 2000, followed by the first daily lens made from silicone hydrogel, the 1-DAY ACUVUE TruEye in 2008.

Johnson & Johnson stands out in respect to soft contact lens manufacturing for the consumers over other major manufacturers in a number of areas:

- at the moment, they have only one brand, ACUVUE (after ending production of the Surevue brand). All types of soft contact lenses fall under the ACUVUE brand.
- they have two standard Base Curves (B/C - Radius) for the 1-DAY ACUVUE lenses, namely 8.5 and 9.0.
- until 2016, ACUVUE had no monthly lenses, but exclusively daily disposable lenses, weekly (7-day) lenses and bi-weekly (14-day) lenses.

The most recent addition to the range is the ACUVUE VITA™, a silicone hydrogel monthly lens, available since late 2016, also through Lensdeal.

Here follows a brief overview of the current lenses available:

It uses a whole newly developed silicone hydrogel material, senofilcon C in combination with the new HydraMax™ Technology, to keep the lens moist for the longest time, and the INFINITY EDGE™ lens finish. This lens is superior in wearing comfort and that is noticeable, not only from day one, but certainly by the end of the month.
