5 Important Reasons Your Eyes Need Acuvue Oasys Max Contact Lenses

You’re thinking, I’ve tried a lot of contact lenses and they aren’t that different. Why do I need Acuvue Oasys Max contact lenses?

Just like the rest of technology around us every day, the pace of innovation is rapidly increasing and not just for items like our phones and TV’s. Medical innovations offer us better solutions and products that can keep up with the increased demands we place on our vision. 

Why Your Eyes Need Better Contact Lenses

Just like the rest of our health, prevention is key. As we age, so do our eyes. Unfortunately, this is intensified with the demands of our modern life – and we can prove it:

Adults spend a whopping 13+ hours daily on digital devices. This is a 35% increase from only 3 years ago.

We blink 60% less when looking at digital screens which compromises our tear film and can cause discomfort.

71% of people say screen time or the total demands of work and life have increased in the last 2 years.

Why Our Optometrists Recommend Acuvue Oasys Contact Lenses

Even prior to the combination of new technologies built into the Oasys Max contact lens, our award-winning Burnaby optometrists voted on the Top 3 Contact Lenses and Acuvue Oasys took the first and second spot.

Best Daily Use Contact Lens 

Acuvue Oasys 1-Day

  • Next-Gen Technology: Inspired by the way your tear film works to help reduce the feeling of dry eyes. 
  • Toric Design: Corrects astigmatism by reshaping the cornea (front surface of the eye) to correct its curvature. When the eyeball surface is shaped like a perfectly round ball, light is able to enter the eye and bend evenly to give you a clear image. 
  • Class I UV Blocking: The highest level of UV protection available in a contact lens.*
  • Dry Eye Prevention: This contact lens has tear-like properties that work with your natural tear film each day, providing all-day performance and excellent comfort, vision and handling.
  • Wide Parameter Range: This enables more successful fits for eyes of all shapes, sizes and powers. 

Best Budget Friendly, Reusable Contact Lens

Acuvue Oasys 2-Week

  • Next-Gen Technology: Inspired by the way your tear film works to help reduce the feeling of dry eyes in a reusable lens option. 
  • Wide parameter range: Available with correction for near and farsighted prescriptions. It also has a reusable option that corrects astigmatism.
  • Class I UV Blocking: The highest level of UV protection available in a contact lens.*
  • Eye Breathability: These contact lenses are extremely breathable making it feel like you’re wearing no lenses at all. Since contact lenses sit directly on your eyes, it can reduce the oxygen flow to your eye. This may seem inconsequential but having oxygen flow is important in keeping your eyes healthy and providing good comfort.

*Class I UV contact lenses block >99% of UVB and >90% of UVA. In comparison, Class II UV contact lenses block >95% UVB and >50% UVA.

5 Reasons Your Eyes Need Acuvue Oasys Max Contact Lenses

Our recommendation of Contact lenses is independent, optometrist verified and we do not earn a commission if you shop through our links.

1. TearStable Technology

Dry eyes are uncomfortable and can often cause your eyes to sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room or after looking at a screen for a few hours. It can affect how well you see, as well as how comfortable your eyes are throughout the day. If you suffer from difficulty wearing contact lenses, watery eyes, or eye fatigue, it can have a massive impact on your day.

Well, the Oasys Max contact lenses have TearStable Technology that delivers a 2x lower tear evaporation rate vs other contact lens brands. That means you can count on exceptional moisture across the lens rather than experiencing dry spots that will ultimately lead to irritation.

2. OptiBlue Light Filter

This filter provides the highest blue-violet light filtering in the industry! It reduces disorientating light scatter, haloes, and starbursts. It also provides Class 1 level UV blocking (99.9% UVA and 100% UVB). Blue light blocking contact lenses help prevent  digital eye strain which comes from looking at digital screens throughout the day.

This can have a negative effect on our health, including difficulty sleeping.

The OptiBlue light filter is even more helpful for those in their 60’s, as light scatter can double, which distorts your vision.

Light scatter doubles by age 60, resulting in increased visual artifacts.

3. Pupil Optimized Design

Pupil-optimized design may not sound that interesting but our pupils are not all the same size. Our pupil size tends to decrease as we age and these lenses take that into consideration. Imagine trying to use children’s glasses as an adult, it would limit your vision and likely lead to headaches. With Acuvue Oasys Max contact lenses, 92% of wearers were successfully fit in the first pair they tried! 

4. Acuvue Max Contact Lenses Have Unreal Results!

Their clinical trial had excellent results, with 90% of participants reporting all day comfort! Not only that…

  • 86% reported reduced feeling of tired eyes with digital devices. 
  • Greater than 95% reported clarity with digital devices. 
  • Nearly 100% reported clear, reliable vision.

5. Incredibly Flexible

Oasys Max contact lenses are available both as a 1 day daily disposable contact lens or in a 1-day daily multifocal option. This incorporates your distance and near prescriptions within a single lens so that you can focus clearly on objects at a wide range of distances, whether you are reading or driving. Similarly, the results were excellent for the multifocal lenses:

  • 94% reported clear vision when using a digital device
  • 80% reported clear vision for near, far and intermediate zones
  • 94% reported comfort throughout the day 
  • 90% reported end of day comfort

Ok great, you have found your new contact lenses. Now what?

Don’t Forget Your Contact Lens Fitting

Contact lenses are not one-size-fits-all. When we visit our optometrist for a new pair of glasses, we’re used to having our glasses meticulously fit. The frames are adjusted to the bridge of our nose, the lenses are centralized to the middle of our eyes, and the frames arms are adjusted to sit properly on our ears. A similar type of precision is needed to properly fit contact lenses as well.

Even those of us who are full-time glasses wearers, we still occasionally rely on contacts — whether it be for sports, convenience, lifestyle, or otherwise. For all contact lens wearers, a contact lens fitting is vital to ensure that the lenses fit each eye properly, your vision is good for distance and near, and your eye health is maintained. 

How Long Does a Contact Lens Fitting Take?

The great news is that most contact lens fittings can be combined with your comprehensive eye exam and it only adds about 10 minutes to your appointment.

More time will be needed for first-time wearers or those being fit in multifocal contacts.
