for your eyes."
a New World in Contact Lenses
ACUVUE® ADVANCE™ Brand Contact Lenses for
ASTIGMATISM offer a new world in contact lenses. ACUVUE®
ADVANCE™ for ASTIGMATISM is the only lens for astigmatism
with HYDRACLEAR™*** technology that allows contact lenses
to be comfortable immediately and throughout your busy day. Breakthrough
technology, known as the Accelerated Stabilization Design, harnesses
the power of the blink to create a lens that remains positioned
correctly and gives you crisp, steady vision all day long, no matter
what you are doing.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
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® ADVANCE™ Brand Contact Lenses block
approximately 90% of UV-A radiation and 99% of UV-B radiation. All other
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.
