Ask a contact lens wearer what is the bane of his or her life and the answer will come pat. It is the daily grind of removing the contact lenses each night and maintaining a regular routine of cleaning the contact lenses to ensure their efficacy is not compromised. Thus the discovery of the Acuvue contact lens has been welcomed by contact lens wearers with open arms.
The arrival of the Acuvue contact lens, first introduced in the late eighties by the firm of Johnson and Johnson, made international headlines as they promised the wearer freedom from the daily grind of contact lens maintenance as its primary advantage. The Acuvue contact lens is the first disposable contact lens to hit the market and has remained on top of the charts in the field of contact lens research and manufacturing.
The disposable contact lens better known as the Acuvue contact lens can be changed daily and allows the wearer the joy of wearing a fresh pair of lenses each morning. Thus there are no messy solutions to be dealt with and no time to be wasted in carefully cleaning out those thin pieces of plastic or glass.
Then with the ongoing research in the field of Acuvue contact lenses in place, these lenses now come fitted with ultra violet ray protection, giving the wearer the advantage of eye protection even in the outdoors.
The makers of this lens have also gone into ensuring that Acuvue lens is handy and easily spotted on the crowded dressing table, by making the lenses with a slight hint of tinting.
This clever scheme helps in locating and handling the Acuvue lenses even when one is not too tidy a person or the dressing table in one’s room is actually a place for equipping oneself for a role on stage, chockfull of bottles and brushes, for completing make-up needs.
With so much in store, it did not take long for major manufacturers to switch over from making the durable hard lenses to the Acuvue contact lenses. Today, this product is produced and marketed by major manufacturers around the world and millions of users of contact lenses prefer to opt for the easily disposable, maintenance free Acuvue lenses instead of all other brands of contact lenses.
