First-of-its-Kind Light Adaptive Contacts
ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ are the first-of-its-kind contact lens that seamlessly adapts to changing light to provide all-day soothing vision.
ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ use photochromic technology, developed in partnership with Transitions Optical Inc.
Seamlessly Adapts from Indoor to Outdoor Light
ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ activates in less than a minute and quickly fades from dark to clear when going from outdoors to indoors.
Improving Patients’ Vision Satisfaction
When asked about experiencing moments when bothered by light, 64% of consumers admit to being bothered by bright light daily. 94% of those who reported they were bothered by bright light daily use compensating behaviours (such as eye shading, squinting, turning off lights and turning down screen brightness) to manage it. ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ can help mitigate bright light and reduce fatigue from squinting.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions
Q: How will the lenses look on my eyes?
A: ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ is specifically designed to provide patient benefits* while minimizing the change to the eyes’ appearance.1
*Ability to see comfortably in bright light
Q: Can I wear these lenses when I am driving?
A: Yes, these lenses can be worn while driving—during the day or at night.1,2
Q: Do I still need to wear sunglasses when I wear ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™?
A: Yes. While these lenses do provide UV protection to the areas they cover, other parts of the eye and surrounding areas are still exposed to UV light. For that reason, ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ are not intended as a replacement for sunglasses. The lenses can be worn with non-prescription sunglasses and should be considered a part of a total light management suite of solutions.1
Q: Do the lenses work indoors?
A: Yes. ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ is always on, whether indoors or outdoors. The lenses are designed to adapt automatically—becoming lighter or darker—in response to changing light. Even in their clearest state, they are filtering light.1-3
Q: How quickly will they lighten up inside? How long does it take for them to get dark outside?
A: Activation and fade back time of the lenses are dependent on a number of factors. The lenses begin to activate as soon as they are exposed to sunlight. When going from outdoors to indoors, they quickly fade from dark to clear.1
Q: Do the lenses filter blue light?
A: Yes. ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ seamlessly adapts to balance the amount of indoor and outdoor light entering the eye, including filtering blue light and blocking UV rays. 1‡†
Q: How should the lenses be stored?
A: Lenses must be stored away from direct sunlight as indicated on the label. If the lenses are not stored properly, they may lose some photochromic performance. If stored properly, there should be no noticeable impact in performance during the 2 weeks of daily wear, for which the lenses are indicated.1
Q: Can the lenses be worn in heat and cold? Are they affected by body temperature?
A: Yes, the lenses can be worn in various cold and hot temperature conditions. When worn, these lenses are constantly maintained at eye temperature. Therefore, environmental temperature would not have an effect with on-eye photochromic performance (activation, darkness, and fade rates).1
Q: Why is ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ only available in a reusable lens? Why not a daily disposable? Why not for patients with astigmatism?
A: ACUVUE® OASYS is about performance in demanding environments. With an indication for vision correction and the attenuation of bright light, ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ will help contact lens wearers manage the diverse types of light and varying intensities of brightness they face—indoors and outdoors—every day. That’s why it’s a great addition to the ACUVUE® OASYS family.
‡ Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is 1 of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders.
