ACUVUE® offers a range of contact lenses to correct most vision needs. For help finding out if ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses can correct your vision, speak to your eye care practitioner and see the list of vision needs below.
Contact lenses for short-sightedness (myopia)
If you find it difficult to clearly see objects in the distance, ACUVUE® has a contact lens for you.
These contact lenses are thinner at the centre than at the edges. This helps to move the focal point of the light to your retina, so you can see objects at a distance more clearly.
Contact lenses for long-sightedness (hyperopia)
If you find it hard to focus on objects up close, ACUVUE® has a contact lens for you.
These contact lenses are thicker at the centre and thinner at the edges. They move the focal point forward to focus light on your retina, so you can see objects up close more clearly.
Contact lenses for age-related long-sightedness (presbyopia)
Presbyopia is an age-related condition whereby you find it increasingly hard to focus sharply on near objects, especially in low light. Presbyopia commonly starts to affect people around the age of 40.
Multifocal lenses are used to correct presbyopia. With these contact lenses you can see clearly without reading glasses, whatever the distance.
Another approach to presbyopia is monovision, whereby one eye has a contact lens to see up close while the other eye has a lens to see far away. Depending on your distance vision, a single lens may be all you need.
Contact lenses for astigmatism
If you have astigmatism your vision will be blurry or distorted at all distances. Thanks to developments in technology, ACUVUE® has a contact lens for you too.
Soft toric contact lenses correct astigmatism by compensating for the individual differences in the shape of your eye, enabling light to focus correctly on the retina at the back of your eye.
ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses for astigmatism have Accelerated Stabilisation Design technology which uses the power of your natural blink to help keep your lens in position to give you clear, stable vision.
If your eye care practitioner advises you that contact lenses are a good choice to correct your vision, you’ll need to decide if you’d prefer to wear daily disposable or reusable contact lenses. Your eye care practitioner will be able to give you the best advice about which contact lens is right for you.
