Want to add more colour into your life? Tired of matching the colour of your shoes to that of your belt? Why not go a step further and match the colour of your eyes to that of your clothes? Is this possible? Acuvue 2 Colour Opaques makes it so.
Johnson and Johnson, world leader in pharmaceutical, medical and consumer products, in response to the growing demands of fashion conscious consumers, has developed a new line of contact lenses that will be carried by the Acuvue Brand. These lenses, which allow users to change the colour of their eyes, are aptly called Acuvue 2 Colours.
You have more colour choices with Acuvue 2 Colours Opaques than with Enhancers. With Opaques, you can choose from seven hues: blue, chestnut brown, green, grey, hazel, honey and sapphire blue; whereas in Enhancers, your choices are limited to three: blue, green and aquamarine.
Despite having coloured lenses, Acuvue 2 Colours are still your basic regular spherical lenses designed to treat myopia (near / short sightedness) or hyperopia (far / long sightedness). The addition of a coloured layer in the thin lens filament is only for cosmetic purposes. The special colour layer is within the folds of the lens thus, these do not rest on your corneas thus; the new hues blend well with your existing eye colour and will not, in any way, make you view your surroundings differently.
Aside from giving your eyes a fresh new look; Acuvue 2 Colours Opaques also protects your irises from the harmful rays of the sun. Acuvue 2 Colours, just like all the lenses that fall under the Acuvue brand, provide you with up to 98% protection against UV rays. Not all contact lenses can give you that.
If you wish to wear Acuvue 2 Colours Opaques, you can easily purchase a set from your nearest pharmacy or optical shop. To make sure that you are buying the right kind of Acuvue 2 Colours, check your prescription or the box. An “O” or an “E” before the colour name itself indicates whether the lenses are Opaques or Enhancers. Correcting your vision and staying in style has never been this fun and exciting.
Acuvue 2 Colours Opaques are extended wear lenses. With continuous use (will not remove, even while sleeping), the lenses can last up to 7 days. With proper care (removing at night and rinsing in disinfectant), you can use your Opaques for an additional 7 days, before these are to be disposed of and replaced.
