- What is ASD?
Accelerated Stabilisation Design (ASD) is a technology that uses the power of your natural blink reflex to keep your contact lens in the correct position. ASD was specially developed for astigmatism and is used in all ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses for astigmatism, such as 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® for ASTIGMATISM and ACUVUE® OASYS® for ASTIGMATISM.
- What is HYDRACLEAR®?
HYDRACLEAR® is the brand name for our patented comfort technology used in our silicone hydrogel lenses including 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® and ACUVUE® OASYS®. This technology combines high oxygen transmissibility with a moisture rich material. This gives you a lens with a unique, silky soft feel that lasts all day.
- What is LACREON®?
LACREON® is the brand name for our exclusive comfort technology found in 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® and 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® for ASTIGMATISM. It binds a water-loving material to create a cushion of moisture around the lens.
- Can I buy ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses on the ACUVUE® website?
No. You can only buy ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses from an eye care practitioner. You must have a valid prescription to get contact lenses to ensure you have the right size, shape and vision correction for your eyes.
Here is the list of the eye-practitioners in South Africa.
- What is the solution in which ACUVUE® lenses are packaged?
ACUVUE® lenses are packaged in a buffered, preservative-free, sterile solution. It is a saline solution that is similar to your natural tears.
