Vistakon Launches 1-Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism
By Marge Axelrad: Editorial Director
NEW YORK—Some 25 years after it introduced the first disposable soft contact lens, Vistakon, a division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, has launched a new daily disposable soft toric lens featuring accurate fast fit and an extensive range of power availability in the U.S.
The 1-Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism CLs are made using LACREON technology, a unique process that permanently embeds a water holding ingredient, similar to that found in natural tears, into the proven etafilcon A material of the 1-Day Acuvue brand. This technological advancement locks in moisture that lasts throughout the day, addressing the most frequently reported complaints of contact lens discomfort—dryness and end of day comfort, the company said.
“Research confirms that nearly half of all patients requiring vision correction have clinically significant levels of astigmatism in at least one eye,” said W. Lee Ball, OD, FAAO, associate director, medical affairs, Vistakon. “Additional studies show that toric soft contact lenses such as 1-Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism provide significantly better visual acuity compared to spherical lenses for astigmatic patients and provide comparable improvements in visual acuity to spectacle wear.”
