Part of the multinational Johnson & Johnson Corporation, Acuvue is one of the world’s best-known contact lens brands.

Indeed, J&J Vision Care continues to invest a great deal of time and energy into the Acuvue brand, which has led to many exciting breakthroughs in recent years. Anyone looking for a trusted name in the contact lens industry can’t go wrong with the Acuvue brand.

Of course, just because Acuvue works for millions of customers doesn’t mean they’ll be the best fit for your eyes. To help you make an informed purchase, let’s take a closer look at the Acuvue brand. Below, we’ll also discuss the specific Acuvue contacts available on Contactlenses.co.uk. With all this info in mind, you and your optometrist should have a clear idea of whether Acuvue is right for you.
Although “Acuvue” wasn’t invented till the 1980s, this company officially got its start as a tiny Florida-based vendor called Frontier in the 1950s. Frontier steadily grew throughout the 60s and 70s and eventually caught the attention of major companies like J&J. At the start of the 1980s, J&J decided to acquire Frontier as a part of its budding Vision Care division.
J&J first used the Acuvue label in the mid-1980s when it released weeklong disposable contacts. Shortly thereafter, daily disposable Acuvue lenses hit the shelves as well as longer-lasting two-week and one-month lenses.
Today, there are about 10 different lens types available in the Acuvue contact lens family. All Acuvue lenses are manufactured either in the USA or Ireland and J&J’s Vision Care division is still headquartered where Acuvue began: Jacksonville, Florida.
On Contactlenses.co.uk, you’ll find one of the UK’s best selections of Acuvue contacts. Here are a few of the best-selling Acuvue names you could buy from our online shop.
Those who aren’t familiar with contact lenses often mistakenly assume “Acuvue Oasys” is the brand’s full name. Considering how popular Acuvue Oasys is to the Acuvue brand, however, we understand why people would make this mistake.
Acuvue Oasys lenses remain so popular because of J&J’s special HYDRACLEAR Plus technology. In a nutshell, this additional layer of protection is supposed to improve eye wettability, which leads to a reduction in dry eye-related symptoms. For this reason, Acuvue Oasys lenses are usually recommended for people who have conditions like dry eye syndrome or computer vision strain.
Acuvue Oasys also earn high marks for their UV-blocking technology. According to J&J, these lenses can block roughly 99 percent of UVB and 95 percent of UVA1 rays.
On Contactlenses.co.uk, we offer both the standard Acuvue Oasys lenses as well as Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism. Both of these Acuvue Oasys products are shipped in boxes that contain six lenses each. You can order Acuvue Oasys lenses that last either one or two weeks before expiration.
Anyone looking for a daily disposable option should check out the many 1 Day Acuvue varieties on Contactlenses.co.uk. As you could tell from the name, 1 Day Acuvue contacts are only designed for one day use, making them an extremely convenient and safe option.
Optometrists around the world strongly recommend daily disposable lenses due to their high safety profile. Since you throw away these lenses every night, there’s a great reduction in the risk for bacterial, fungal, or viral infections. Plus, daily disposable users don’t have to worry about uncomfortable protein deposits cluttering up their lenses over time.
On top of the standard 1 Day Acuvue Moist, Contactlenses.co.uk also has many specialized dailies varieties for specific needs. For instance, you’ll find daily lenses designed for astigmatism patients and multifocal contacts for presbyopia sufferers. Contactlenses.co.uk also offers 1 Day Acuvue TruEye, which is made with a highly breathable silicone hydrogel material.
So, if you’re thinking of making the switch to dailies, Contactlenses.co.uk certainly has a great selection of 1 Day Acuvue contacts to look through.
Customers who love the design that put Acuvue on the map can purchase the original Acuvue 2 contacts on Contactlenses.co.uk. Even though the contact lens industry has grown over the years, Acuvue continues to refresh its original weekly disposable lens for customers who are comfortable with the brand.
Acuvue 2 lenses are usually good for between one to two weeks of daytime wear before they have to be disposed of. All Acuvue 2 lenses also have strong UVA and UVB protection and a visibility tint.
Each box of Acuvue 2 on Contactlenses.co.uk contains six contacts that come pre-packaged in a sterile saline solution.
You may have already heard about Acuvue’s latest technological breakthrough: Transitions Contact Lenses. That’s right, there are now a few Acuvue contacts that darken when exposed to natural sunlight. J&J hopes this novel innovation will reduce glare, improve visual acuity, and eliminate the risks posed by UV exposure.
In 2018, these Transitions lenses caught global headlines when Time magazine said they were one of the best inventions of the year. Although it’s still too early to tell, initial studies on these new contacts have been very positive.
Be sure to be on the lookout for Transitions-enabled Acuvue lenses in Contactlenses.co.uk’s ever-evolving catalogue. By the way, you could take a peek at Contactlenses.co.uk’s wide array of sunglasses if you need some extra UV protection.
