What is Acuvue Oasys?



Acuvue Oasys is a type of contact lens from the Acuvue brand, which is part of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care.
Acuvue Oasys are disposable contacts. According to the Acuvue website, a person can wear these lenses for 1 day or 2 weeks, depending on the type they buy.
Acuvue also offers specialized lenses for people with:

  • Myopia, also known as nearsightedness
  • Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness
  • Astigmatism, a bend in the lens or cornea of the eye that causes blurry vision
  • Presbyopia, a natural loss of vision as a person gets older, which can make nearby objects appear blurry
All Oasys brands come with some protection against UV rays. However, they do not fully block all UV light, so a person will continue to need sunglasses or goggles when outside.
Some potential pros of these contact lenses include:
  • options for 1-day or 2-week contact lens replacements according to an individual’s comfort preference
  • a money-back guarantee
  • a person can order these online or at a doctor’s office
  • lenses are specialized for different conditions
  • individuals can use insurance or health savings accounts to help cover the cost
Some cons of Acuvue Oasys may include:
  • its high cost
  • it may not work well for all prescriptions or eye problems
  • its daily replacement lenses may start to feel uncomfortable within 5 hours
