1-Day ACUVUE MOIST Contact Lenses Are Healthy and Comfortable
I’m not the only eye doctor who really likes to prescribe 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST contact lenses. When I talk with doctors in my practice or other eye doctors at education events, a lot of us are prescribing 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST when they are appropriate. We like how healthy and comfortable these contact lenses are.
I always tell my patients to think of your contacts as if they were underwear. Changing a contact lens more frequently just makes hygienic sense. 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST is a “daily” lens—you throw away your lenses at the end of each day. Indeed daily replacement contacts are a little more expensive; but you don’t have to spend money on contact lens cleaning solution, and that offsets most of the extra cost.
Daily lenses are quite a bit thinner than most other contact lenses, and more oxygen passes through skinnier lenses. More breathable contacts are also more comfortable. In addition, 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST lenses retain high quantities of comfort-promoting moisture. All of that is just a fancy way of saying I like how the moisture and breathability leads to a very comfortable lens for 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST users.
What about UV Protection?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and state my opinion: Contact lens UV protection is not sufficient. It’s just not possible for contacts to protect your eyes enough. If you’re going to be in the sun, you need UV protection from sunglasses or prescription glasses with good UV protection. Contact lenses are just too small and thin to do a good job of blocking powerful UV rays. Contact lenses with UV protection can only help a little.
1-Day ACUVUE MOIST contact lenses provide some UV protection. However, I really love these lenses because daily replacement makes them so safe, and because their oxygen flow and moisture retention make them so comfortable.
Because I love these contact lenses, we often put them on sale. Visit our 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST page to see our current price.
