Acuvue or “Accurate view” is a brand of disposable contact lenses known by most contact lens users. If you are thinking of making a switch from glasses to contacts, you should know about the top brands, like Acuvue. The real difference between the available contact lenses lies in the difference between saline solution, contact solution, and rewetting drops.
Saline solution is a simple PH balanced saltwater solution. It rinses small particles off contact lenses and hydrating your eyes. However, it should just be used as a rinse to remove irritants from the lens’s surface. Saline solutions do not disinfect your lens thereby, exposing you to possible eye infections, microorganisms, and other irritations.
The Acuvue brand is one of the most recommended contact lens brands available. Acuvue has varieties ranging from ACUVUE Oasys 24 Pack, ACUVUE Oasys for astigmatism six-pack, and 1-Day ACUVUE Moist 90 Pack. Acuvue Moist contact lenses have a high level of built-in UV protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
It holds a moisture-rich ingredient to keep eyes fresh and hydrated all day. These lenses are ideal for you if you are new to the use of contacts. 1 –Day Acuvue Oasys benefit from Hydraluxe technology that ‘works with the eye’s natural tear film to reduce dryness and tired eyes. The lenses also include built-in UVA and UVB protection.” They are from silicone hydrogel that allows oxygen to pass through into the eyes. If you spend lots of time on digital devices or in dry environments with air conditioning, these lenses are better for you. Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism is for people with astigmatism. It is a single-use contact lens that benefits from hydraluxe technology to keep the eyes wet, especially when staring at digital devices for long periods.
