JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (June 26, 2014) – Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., today announced that ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses, the number-one selling contact lens brand in the world, is now available in a new six-month Supply Pack (12 lenses per box). The new six-month Supply Pack will replace all three-month Supply Packs (6 lenses per box), which will be discontinued effective July 1, 2014.
“In a study that captured actual product use patterns among ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand three-month and Annual Supply users across a four-month time period, research showed that patients with larger pack sizes tended to be more compliant in replacing their lenses bi-weekly as recommended by their doctor, had a significantly better wearing experience with respect to better comfort throughout the day, at the end of the day, and throughout the wear cycle,” according to Laura Angelini, president, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Companies, North America. “Additionally, patients with larger pack sizes said they were more likely to return to their doctor the next time they need an eye examination.”*
ACUVUE® OASYS® six-month Supply Pack will be available in all parameters that are currently available in the current three-month and Annual Supply packs: Power ranges of 8.4 and 8.8 BC including -0.50D to -6.00 in 0.25D steps, -6.50D to -12.00D in 0.50 steps, +0.50D to +6.00D in 0.25D steps, and +6.50D to +8.00D in 0.50D steps.
ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses are indicated for vision correction. As with any contact lens, eye problems, including corneal ulcers, can develop. Some wearers may experience mild irritation, itching or discomfort. Lenses should not be prescribed if patients have any eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems.
