When it comes to vision and eye-care, no other company comes close to the development and advancements pioneered by Johnson and Johnson. Johnson and Johnson has perfected the process of creating healthy, light and disposable contact lenses under the brand name of Acuvue.
Several other products fall under the Acuvue brand, all of which have been specifically designed and manufactured to meet the varied medical conditions and lifestyle demands of the potential users. One of these Acuvue brands is known as Acuvue 2.
Acuvue 2 is similar to regular Acuvue lenses. These are Spherical or Rounded lenses that aim to correct myopia (near or short sightedness) or hyperopia (far or long sightedness). However, unlike other Acuvue lenses which can be discarded after these have been used, Acuvue 2 has a longer “shelf life” and is also considered an “extended wear” lens. Made of more durable materials, Acuvue 2 can be worn for several days. If you opt to remove your lenses at night and soak them in disinfectant and cleaning solutions while you sleep, you can wear the Acuvue 2 lenses for as long as 14 days. If you, however, do not remove your lenses even at night, it would be safe to use Acuvue 2 for a maximum of seven days.
Despite being “extended wear” lenses, Acuvue 2 are still very comfortable and easy to wear. The soft material used on all Acuvue 2 lenses gently surrounds your cornea and will not dry your eyes out. They are easy to remove, easy to clean and easy to locate as these lenses are tinged with a blue hue which makes them clearly visible even while these are submerged in cleaning or disinfecting solutions.
What sets Acuvue 2 lenses apart from its competitors is the UV protecting capabilities of each product. Each Acuvue product has been designed to give you maximum protection against the harsh UV rays from the sun. Ordinary lenses give your eyes 10 – 30% protection against UV-A and UV-B rays but Acuvue has been tested to shield your corneas from 80 – 97% of UV-A and UV-B light. You not only improve your eyesight with Acuvue, your eyes are protected as well.
Acuvue 2 lenses are an integral part of one’s daily routine. These provide you with a practical and convenient solution to basic visual impairments at a very affordable cost. Note, however, that despite their affordability and disposable properties, Acuvue 2 contact lenses are still medical implements designed to improve or aid a specific abnormality. Under no circumstance should you purchase contact lenses without having consulted with a licensed eye doctor. Doing so may cause more harm and instead of correcting your vision, bring you more trouble and discomfort.
