Do you block your eyes from bright light…do you turn off bright lights…do you squint…do you turn down the brightness of your screen/monitor? If you answered YES to any of these questions, Acuvue Oasys with Transitions contact lenses might be the solution for you.
Did you know…
- 64% of consumers are bothered by bright light daily.
- 94% of consumers bothered by light used compensating behaviors (squinting, blocking the sun, etc.)
How will the lenses look on my eyes?
Acuvue Oasys with Transitions is specially designed to provide benefits to patients while minimizing the change to the eye’s appearance.
Can I wear these lenses while I’m driving?
Yes, they can be worn while driving, during the day or at night.
Do I still need to wear sunglasses when I wear Acuvue Oasys with Transitions?
Yes. While these lenses do provide UV protection to the areas they cover, other parts of the eye and surrounding areas are still exposed to UV light. These lenses are not intended as a replacement for sunglasses. The lenses can be worn with non-prescription sunglasses.
Do the lenses work indoors?
Yes. Acuvue Oasys with Transitions is always on, whether indoors or outdoors. The lenses are designed to adapt automatically—becoming lighter or darker in response to changing light.
How long does it take the lenses to activate, and then deactivate?
Acuvue Oasys Transition Lenses activate in less than a minute, and quickly fades from dark to clear, within 90 seconds when transitioning back from outdoors to indoors.
“Light sensitivity can be a problem for many of my patients. These transition contact lenses are not only very comfortable, but they provide 100% UV protection, and the added benefit of relief from bright lights & glare. Patients love them!”
– Dr. Melanie Javier
