Thank you for your question. In answer to your question, the line in your contacts is simply a guide to help your eye doctor determine the orientation of the lens during your contact lens fitting and follow-up appointments. Either mark can represent the vertical position – there is no “top” and “bottom” as in a prism-ballasted lens. In short, no need to worry because after just a few blinks the lens should automatically be positioned correctly on your eye.

Question

Why aren't Acuvue Oasys For Astigmatism made in colors?

I see others have asked this or a similar question. The answer is always a standard one that they aren't made at this time. Please pass on my request for colors in these lenses to the appropriate personnel! I'm sure there are a lot of others that would like them too! These lenses have been great for me, but I'd really like colored lenses!

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not offer your prescription. We do not offer lenses with cylinders of -4.00 or -2.75. The highest cylinder that we offer is -2.25. The cylinder power represents the strength of your astigmatism. We manufacture parameters to cover a very wide range of possible prescriptions. In fact, we offer prescriptions that cover the majority of prescriptions that people need. However, we are not able to meet every need. We regret not being able to offer a lens that meets your needs and apologize for any inconvenience.

Please ask your eye doctor about your options. For full product parameter information, please refer to http://www.jnjvisioncare.com/pdf/pr....

Thank you for your question. There are several differences between these lenses. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand for ASTIGMATISM features HYDRACLEAR® Plus technology while ACUVUE® ADVANCE® Brand for ASTIGMATISM features HYDRACLEAR® technology. HYDRACLEAR® Plus 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 for ASTIGMATISM also allows for greater wettability, smoothness, and UV blocking than the ACUVUE® ADVANCE® Brand for ASTIGMATISM.

With respect to your question regarding rewetting drops and eye lubricating drops, please ask your eye doctor, who will be in the best position to provide an answer to your question.

Question

Rewetting Drops Washes Out My Lens

Sometimes my eyes get dry when I wear my lenses (I wear Oasys for Astigmatism). When they do, I'll put rewetting drops but when I do they wash out my left contact. I'm able to put the contact back in with no problem. This only happens with the left contact. Any ideas why this is happening?

Thank you for your question. Yes, 14.5 diameter is a standard diameter for ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM. Let your doctor know you are interested in contact lens, and ask for a recommendation on which lens type is right for you and about trial lens availability. Your doctor will determine what is best for you.

Thank you for contacting us about our product line. While we are always expanding the range of sizes and configurations available, I’m sorry to say we currently do not make lenses that meet your needs or have a timetable when they may be available.

Your comments help us assess and meet consumer requirements, and I have passed your request along to the appropriate people here at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care. As technology advances, perhaps we will be able to serve your specific needs in the future. In the meantime, your Eye Care Practitioner is the person best qualified to determine what steps to take for your vision needs. Thank you for your interest.
