ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM
Why ask for theses contacts?
Maybe you’ve been told you can’t wear contact lenses because you have astigmatism. Or perhaps you’re experiencing discomfort, blurred or fluctuating vision with your current lenses. Now with ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand for ASTIGMATISM you can leave all that behind.
We combined the visual stability of our revolutionary BLINK STABILIZED™ lens design and the exceptional comfort of HYDRACLEAR® PLUS Technology** to form a lens like no other. The result is consistently clear vision that’s remarkably comfortable— even for people with an active lifestyle.
Four zones of stability minimizes lens shifting and rotation
BLINK STABILIZED™ lens design helps keep your vision crisp, clear, and stable all day long—even for people with an active lifestyle.
This unique lens design helps minimize shifting and contact lens rotation because it’s designed to realign naturally with every blink. Contacts with BLINK STABILIZED™ design also feature four zones of stability, instead of the single ballast zone found in most astigmatic contact lenses. The result is exceptional stability and crisp vision.
Super Comfortable Contacts
HYDRACLEAR® Plus for all-day comfort
Patented HYDRACLEAR® PLUS Technology makes contacts ultra-smooth and more wettable, with a higher transmission of oxygen than conventional contact lenses. That means more comfort and less dryness, even in tough surroundings such as working at a computer for long hours or traveling on an airplane.
