A New Lens Designed for Reliable, Superior Comfort â€“ All Month Long
ACUVUEÂ® VITAâ„¢ Brand Contact Lenses with HydraMaxâ„¢ Technology work with tear film components to maximize and maintain lens hydration, resulting in superior patient ratings for "Overall Comfort" compared to leading monthly lenses.
The Opportunity: Monthly contact lens patients want a full 30 days without having to compromise on comfort â€“ and current lenses are falling short. Two-thirds of monthly patients experience comfort related issues and 82% of these patients report feeling frustrated, annoyed, or inconvenienced by these issues.
A New Monthly Contact Lens: NEW ACUVUEÂ® VITAâ„¢ Brand Contact Lenses with HydraMaxâ„¢ Technology have been designed to provide reliable, superior comfort â€“ all month long. HydraMaxâ„¢ Technology maximizes hydration by allowing the maximum amount of hydrating agent to be integrated throughout the lens. It then maintains hydration by allowing the optimal distribution and density of beneficial lipids into the lens matrix to help reduce the rate of evaporation through the lens. Improved lens hydration can lead to reduced lens awareness, and ultimately improved patient comfort.
The Results: Patient ratings for ACUVUEÂ® VITAâ„¢ were superior for "Overall Comfort" compared to other leading monthly lenses at weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4. In addition, patients' rating of ACUVUEÂ® VITAâ„¢ were also superior for "Overall Quality of Vision."
