When fit with Acuvue Oasys® 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ by your eye care professional, you’ll receive a trial box that contains 5 contact lenses for each eye. In fact, Johnson and Johnson Vision has a certificate for a free trial that you can print out and show your eye doctor.

Once your prescription is finalized, these contacts are available for purchase in 30 packs and 90 packs. Also, as noted in the name, they are designed for daily wear and should be thrown away at the end of the day. Therefore, they’re NOT approved to be slept in!
