Johnson & Johnson Vision announced today that it launched its new Acuvue Oasys Max 1-day contact lenses and multifocal lenses for presbyopia.
The lenses feature Johnson & Johnson’s TearStable technology for tear-film stability and locking in moisture. They also offer the OptiBlue light filter for filtering blue-violet to reduce light scatter for visual clarity.
Johnson & Johnson said in a news release that the Acuvue Oasys Max 1-day lenses block 99.9% of UVA rays and 100% of UVB rays.
“Life has changed, post-pandemic. With more time spent on digital devices, we designed these contact lenses by listening to patients and eye care professionals’ feedback to address lifestyle requirements and help prevent dry and tired eyes from becoming normalized,” said John Buch, senior principal research optometrist, Johnson & Johnson Vision. “Our new Acuvue Oasys Max 1-day contact lenses help reduce discomfort by providing visual clarity with new technologies to filter blue-violet light, which comes from many sources, including digital screens and travels in short wavelengths and scatters more which can lead to eye discomfort and quality of vision.”

The multifocal lenses offer clear vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions, the company said. They feature pupil-optimized design technology aimed at tailoring 100% of parameters to pupil size variations across both age and refraction. Johnson & Johnson Vision said this technology is available across all Acuvue multifocal contact lenses.
Acuvue Oasys Max 1-day and multifocal lenses received FDA clearance, Health Canada approval and CE mark approval earlier this year.
“I’ve witnessed more patients facing symptoms related to a destabilized tear film such as dryness and inconsistent vision due to our increasingly digital lifestyles. It’s important for all contact lens users to have the latest innovative treatment options available to help address comfort and clarity to meet their lifestyle requirements,” said Luis Rojas, co-founder of DeNovo Eye. “Acuvue Oasys 1-day uses innovative technology, designed to maximize tear film stability and reduce light scatter to maintain increased visual clarity and all-day comfort.”
