Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses
The use of contact lenses can cause different symptoms of discomfort to some. That’s why it is highly recommended that an eye checkup be done prior to the use of any type of contact lenses to assess the patient’s eligibility and reduce the risk of lens-related concerns.
Some people are prone to dry eyes and irritation that can be due to a lot of different factors such as the person’s nature of work, lifestyle, medical conditions, and so on. And the use of contact lenses can aggravate the condition. Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses addresses these lens-related discomforts.
1-DAY Acuvue Moist Contact offers a dual action technology , keeping the moisture in while keeping the irritation out. This dual action technology is specifically designed to address the problems of dryness and irritation that can be caused by wearing lenses.
The lacreon technology present in Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses permanently embeds a wetting agent in the lens keeping it moist the entire day. It forms a layer of moisture that is similar to the natural tears that maintains the smoothness of the lens and reduces friction.

1-DAY Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism features a blink stabilized design that helps lenses to realign naturally during blinking. Contact lenses naturally move with every blink and some activities can change their orientation which may cause blurring of vision. Instead of relying to gravity, blink stabilized lens design uses 4 zones of stability to provide a clear and stable vision. These zones interact with the eyelid pressure to keep the lenses from shifting and rotating.
1- Day Acuvue Moist multifocal contact lens features the intuisight technology providing pupil optimized lenses. The optical design of the lens is based on the pupil size according to age and the refractive power to achieve a superior vision compared to other multifocal lenses that do not consider variations in pupil sizes.
