Acuvue Oasys is a premium lens that provides great comfort as well as oxygen permeabilty. It is a lens that has a recommended 2 week replacement schedule.
Due to its high oxygen permeability it is approved for continuous wear for up to 6 nights. However, our examination will determine whether this is a good modality for the patient. We will take into account many factors such as the health of the cornea and tear film, eyelid hygiene and proper lens care.
Some added benefits are that it does have a patented, Hydraclear plus formulation which will benefit many patients as far as providing more comfort by reducing end-of-day dryness symptoms.
FOR YOUR ADDED CONVENIENCE WE NOW STOCK ACUVUE OASYS IN OFFICE IN A WIDE RANGE OF PARAMETERS. THIS MEANS THAT YOU CAN TAKE YOUR ANNUAL SUPPLY HOME WITHOUT THE WAIT AFTER WE FINALIZE YOUR PRESCRIPTION.
This is an added convenience for those emergency cases where you cannot wait to have your lenses ordered, since the last pair has torn or been lost. Note that we do strongly recommend a backup pair of eyeglasses for all of our contact lens patients.
