I wear progressive lenses in my glasses. Do you have contacts for this type of prescription?

I am not sure if I need regular contacts and reading glasses or if there is a brand of lcontact enses out there for my prescription. btw - I work at J&J - and really do want to wear Acuvue lenses! I am tired of glasses!

We sure do! ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA
[http://acuvue.com/products-acuvue-o...] are the next generation of multifocal contacts for people with presbyopia (a condition where the eye loses the ability to focus up close, typically occurring after age 40). This lens features the optical design of STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY™ and the exceptional comfort of HYDRACLEAR® Plus. [http://acuvue.com/technologies-home...] The result is balanced vision near, far and in-between, across variable lighting conditions, along with remarkable comfort – even in challenging environments that can make your eyes feel tired and dry. Launched in early 2009, ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand for PRESBYOPIA is currently available in limited areas. While national availability is our goal, no date has been set. If lenses are available for your prescription, ask your eye doctor if ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA lenses are right for you and details on product availability.

Question

How come I am not able to see clearly with Acuvue Oasys?

I've worn contact lenses for years. I've been wearing the Acuvue 2's for several years. I am severely nearsighted and have a high prescription. I see just fine with my Acuvue 2 contact lenses, but I do have eye dryness. I have tried pretty much all of the "hydraclear" or contacts that are supposed to hydrate my eyes, and NONE of them give me clear vision!?? I can see things that are close up but distance wise things are not clear. The doctor gave me the same prescription for Oasys as my Acuvue 2 prescription. But I see clearly with my Acuvue 2 prescription. Why is that??

Thank you for your question. However, Ask ACUVUE® is not the proper forum to solicit personal medical advice. Please ask your eye doctor, who will be in the best position to provide an answer to your question.

Thank you for your question. For all reusable ACUVUE® lenses (i.e. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand, ACUVUE® ADVANCE® Brand, ACUVUE® 2 Brand) that you wear then remove daily or wear continuously for a week, each box contains six lenses. For lenses you wear for a day, then throw away, like (1•DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand and 1•DAY ACUVUE® Brand), each box contains 30 lenses.

Good question. Your eye doctor can recommend the best product for you and your lenses. You should always follow the recommended care instructions of your eye doctor and the product labeling of the contact lens solution. Proper care of your contact lenses plays an important role in achieving your best possible contact lens wearing experience.

Question

What is the difference between Acuvue Advanced with Hydroclear and Acuvue Advance Plus?

A week after we ordered contacts with Hydroclear, we went back to Walmart to order some for my sister. We were told that they (you? Walmart? 1800Contact?) switched to Plus and that they were the same. 1-800-Contacts still has them available on their website. She tried the Oasys and didn't like them. Should she be concerned about the change without trying the Plus contacts since she has never used them?

Question

Acuvue Advanced versus Oasys basecurve change?

I'm in a foreign country for a few months, and recently needed to get new contacts. Over here, there's no requirement to produce a prescription in order to get contacts - you can buy them at Costco. The last contacts that I bought in the US were Acuvue Advanced with Hydraclear, base curve 8.7. Armed with my last box of US-purchased contacts, I went into a local optometrist's office over here yesterday, and the doctor gave me Acuvue Oasys with base curve 8.8. Everything else in the prescription is the same, except the base curve and the brand. He pointed to the two boxes and said "same" but since that was our only exchange (I don't speak the local language, and I don't think he really spoke much English), I'm a bit worried. Is it going to mess up my eyes if I wear these?

Thank you for your question. There are several differences between these lenses. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses [http://www.acuvue.com/products-acuv...] features HYDRACLEAR® Plus technology while ACUVUE® ADVANCE® Brand features HYDRACLEAR® technology. HYDRACLEAR® Plus [http://www.acuvue.com/technologies-...] is the next generation of HYDRACLEAR® with a higher volume of moisture-rich wetting agent incorporated into a state-of-the-art formulation. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand also allows for greater wettability, smoothness, and UV blocking than the ACUVUE® ADVANCE® Brand.

The base curve or BC is the back curvature of a contact lens. It’s used to match the curvature of the lens to your eye to provide the best fit and comfort. The lower the number, the steeper the curve of your cornea. Only your eye doctor can determine the correct base curve for you during your exam. If you do experience any unusual eye discomfort or changes in your vision remove your lenses and call your eye doctor immediately. If you should have any questions or concerns in the future, please feel free to contact via our “contact us” page http://www.acuvue.com/contact_us.ht....

Order contact lens

I took a long time to search your website and could not find a link where I can order contact lens. Either your website makes it very hard to order or I am just blind?

Question

How come nobody in town seems to have in stock my specific brand?

I wear Acuvue Advance w/Hydraclear, -5.50 in both eyes. I almost ran out (have exatly 1 lens left), I am leaving out of the country for the next 2-3 weeks and can not find one single place (walmart, not lens crafters, nor any other lens seller) that will have my contats in stock ready for me to pay and get on the spot. I usually buy them at Sam's club, and I ordered them there, but they will take 2+ weeks to arrive, thus leaving me without any back up lenses during my trip. Is this the normal scenario for this type of lenses? Can I change brands (to oasys perhaps) so this doesnt happen to me again? I normally have plenty of back up, but this was an unexpected trip and did not count on losing a pair of them.
