American Optometric Association Awards Acuvue(R) Oasys(TM) for Astigmatism With Seal of Acceptance for UV Absorbing Contact Lenses
Date:6/26/2008

lable, blocking more than 90 percent of UVA rays and 99 percent of UVB rays that reach the lens.* ** On average, contact lenses without UV blocking block approximately 10% of UV-A radiation and 30% of UV-B radiation.

Because they cover the entire cornea and limbus, UV-blocking contact lenses offer an added level of protection when worn with UV blocking sunglasses. While many sunglasses will block UV rays that enter through the lenses, most do not prevent unfiltered rays from reaching the eyes through the sides, as well as the top, and/or bottom of the glasses. Due to their inability to block these peripheral rays, some sunglasses block as little as 50 percent of all UV radiation from reaching the eyes.

"Although UV-blocking contact lenses provide important added protection for patients, they should not be viewed as a stand-alone solution," notes Dr. Weaver. "Contact lenses should always be worn in conjunction with high-quality UV-blocking sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat for maximum UV protection for the eyes."

ACUVUE(R) ADVANCE(R), ACUVUE(R) ADVANCE(R) for ASTIGMATISM, and ACUVUE(R) OASYS(TM) also carry the Seal of Acceptance for Ultraviolet Absorbing Contact Lenses from the World Council of Optometry.

ACUVUE(R) Brand Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, contact your eye doctor immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional and ask for a Patient Instruction Guide, call 1-800-84
