*UV PROTECTION: Consumer research has shown that UV protection is an important lens attribute for patients. In fact, 3 of 4 patients report that they want UV protection from their contact lenses, and 1 of 2 say they would switch brands for UV protection.
Since 1997, ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses have led the way in UV blocking. All ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses are FDA approved to help provide protection against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.**
ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses block approximately 82% of UV-A radiation and 97% of UV-B radiation. On the average, contact lenses without UV blocking block approximately 10% of UV-A radiation and 30% of UV-B radiation(1).

** WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses, because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-Blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-Blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders.
As our eyes age, many people begin to lose the ability to view objects that are close to them (like books, menus, maps, etc.). This condition is known as presbyopia and for many years, contact lens wearers still needed to wear glasses along with their contacts when performing up-close tasks. ACUVUE BIFOCAL lenses help correct this problem and spare you the need for reading glasses. Bifocal lenses are especially helpful for those who have jobs or hobbies that require both close and distant viewing (like teachers, musicians, golfers, etc) These contact lenses are disposable lenses that also block UV rays as well as allow for flexible wearing schedules to fit your lifestyle. ACUVUE lenses are all designed with comfort and convenience in mind, and feature their edge design; along with visibility tint and inside-out mark for easy insertion.
