Find the right ACUVUE contact lenses for your lifestyle

Discover lenses that meet the needs of your eyes and your life. Answer a few questions to see our recommendation for the best ACUVUE contact lenses to fit your needs.

By Length of Wear

Lenses with different wear lengths

For people who like the convenience of disposable, we have one-day lenses, and for more economical options we have bi-weekly and monthly contacts.

Daily disposable contact lenses

Put them on in the morning and throw them away every night. Easy as that.

Bi-weekly contact lenses

Simply clean daily and store in lens solution overnight to keep them clean and ready to wear again.

Monthly contact lenses

Longer-term contacts that require consistent cleaning and upkeep.

By Condition

Contacts for different vision challenges

While the goal for each lens is the same—to provide clear, crisp vision—different vision conditions require different solutions. For instance, lenses for nearsightedness redirect the light coming into your eye in a different way than lenses for farsightedness.

Frequently asked questions

Is my contact lens prescription different than my eyeglass prescription?

Yes, your contact lens prescription is different from your eye glasses prescription because it includes base curve, diameter and material or brand, which are all specifications unique to contact lenses. These specifications ensure the lens is a good fit for your eye. They may vary based on the brand your eye doctor prescribes after assessing your eye health and lifestyle. Also, if you have astigmatism or presbyopia, your prescription may include measurements for those as well.

What is silicone hydrogel?

Silicone hydrogel is the newest generation of soft contact lens material. Silicone hydrogel contacts are breathable lenses that allow more oxygen to reach the cornea than hydrogel lenses, which may help reduce the risk of complications, such as corneal swelling. This material is typically combined with coatings or wetting agents to help with lubrication.

Are contacts better than glasses?

Contact lenses and glasses both have their benefits. For example, contacts offer an unobstructed view of the world and won't get in the way of wearing helmets or sunglasses. However, glasses require less care than reusable contacts and can add an extra element of style to an outfit. It’s up to the wearer and their optometrist to decide which is the best option for them.

Are colored contact lenses safe?

When prescribed by a qualfied eye doctor and worn as directed, colored contact lenses can be as safe to wear as any other contact lens. Where problems usually arise is when people don't follow their eye doctor's instructions or wear colored contacts that are not prescribed for them. You should never wear colored contacts bought without a prescription from a costume store or online, or wear contacts prescribed for someone else. The only way to obtain safe colored contacts is to visit your eye doctor for a contact lens fitting.

Can I wear contact lens for 10 hours a day?

Yes, most contact lens wearers can usually wear their contacts for 10+ hours per day, but you should always follow the wearing schedule recommended by your eye doctor. If you don't know, or you've forgotten your wearing schedule, be sure to ask at your next annual eye exam. Keep in mind, unless directed otherwise by your eye doctor, you shouldn't wear your lenses while you're sleeping because that can lead to eye infection or other serious eye health issues.

Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction.

To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, remove the lens and contact your eye doctor immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional, call 1-800-843-2020, or download the Patient Instruction Guides.
