Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Contact Lens: A Professional Review

Cost

As mentioned above, these lenses aren’t cheap. Before purchasing them, the best place to look is at the office of your eye care professional. However, if you’re looking to price things out from home, consider checking out contact lens retailers online.

Also, don’t forget about registering for the rebate!

Final thoughts

This is a very exciting time to be a contact lens wearer! Within the last few years alone, the contact lens industry has produced some of the most technologically advanced and comfortable contact lenses in a wider array of parameters than ever before.

Personally, I feel the Acuvue Oasys® 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ falls just short of Alcon’s Dailies Total1® in terms of comfort. The Dailies Total1® offers a higher amount of oxygen permeability and has water gradient lens technology to enhance comfort (see our review of Dailies Total1® here).

However, despite my opinion, Johnson and Johnson Vision cites that patients prefer Acuvue Oasys® 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ when compared in a head to head study with the Dailies Total1®. Truth be told, if you surveyed a large number of eye doctors, you’d get varying results over which lens is best (i.e. they’re both great)!

Curious if you are a candidate for wearing the Acuvue Oasys® 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ contact lens? What are you waiting for? Make sure to schedule an appointment with your local eye care professional today!
