Contact Lens Shift Can Compromise Vision of People with Astigmatism with the Blink of an Eye
Date:12/5/2007

o gaze at targets located on a

large board positioned approximately two-feet away.

Following each task, participants gazed into primary position for recording of lens position.

The results showed that lenses using the Accelerated Stabilization Design were significantly more stable than the Prism-Ballast Design during settling time and during the large versional tasks that required the eyes to move synchronously and symmetrically in the same direction. For the other two tasks, performance was similar.

"The findings suggest that lenses featuring the Accelerated Stabilization Design may provide better performance under certain 'real world' eye movement situations by offering a more consistent visual experience and less variability in vision," says Dr. Zikos. "For some patients, it may be necessary to find the most stable lens required for their lifestyle."

The study was supported by Vistakon(R), Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care. Prior to publication, data was presented in part at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 2006.

ACUVUE(R), Brand Contact Lenses are indicated for vision correction. As with all contact lenses, 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 discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. Consult the package insert for complete information.
