JACKSONVILLE, FL – June 15, 2022 – Johnson & Johnson Vision,* a global leader in eye health and part of Johnson & Johnson MedTech,** today announced it has received U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) clearance, Health Canada approval and completed CE Mark activities for its latest contact lens innovation, ACUVUE® OASYS MAX 1-Day and ACUVUE® OASYS MAX 1-Day MULTIFOCAL. The announcement comes during the 125th Annual AOA Congress and 54th Annual AOSA Conference: Optometry’s Meeting® 2022 in Chicago (June 15-18).
The new contact lenses were developed to provide all day comfort and visual clarity,2,3 amidst feedback from eye care professionals and patients that today’s modern lifestyles, long hours and increased use of digital devices are taking a toll on eye comfort. A recent survey found the majority (71%) of eye care professionals are seeing patients who are experiencing eye discomfort related to increased screen-time,1 with young contact lens wearers spending an average of 9 hours per day in front of a screen,4,5,6 causing them to blink less and experience more dryness and eye fatigue.7,8,9

Important Information for Contact Lens Wearers: ACUVUE® Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, remove the lens and contact your eye doctor immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional and ask for a Patient Instruction Guide, call 1-800-843-2020, or download the Patient Instruction Guide (https://www.acuvue.ca/patient-instruction-guides).
