Introduced in 2016, Johnson & Johnson’s Vistakon designed and tested Acuvue Vita for comfort while improving efficiency compared to older technologies. Its newer style of silicone hydrogel material (methyl ether cellulose) is just as oxygen permeable but more cost effective for you. Acuvue Vita is a monthly wear lens providing sphere powers from -12.00D to +8.00D. Not only is Acuvue Vita the only monthly wear lens with Class 1 UV blocking, but its unique HydraMax technology maintains an especially healthy tear film. HydraMax Technology – Our eyes require a certain oil density to be properly lubricated. Some lenses interfere with this oil layer or rely on a protective coating which can wear off. Vistakon designed HydraMax into the lens itself, maintaining optimal lipid density without the need for a coating. This means less evaporation and better eye comfort. Acuvue Vita is a monthly wear lens. The above-mentioned technology allows the lens to last an entire month, assuming proper care, without loss of safety or comfort. Budget conscious consumers tend to favor monthly lenses. Only needing to budget for twenty-four lenses a year proves far gentler on the wallet than disposing of daily-wear contacts every night. You will find Acuvue Vita lenses on the market for as high as $60 for a box of six lenses. At Simple Contacts, we can do better. Not only does Simple Contacts offer competitive prices on all its lenses, but new customers can get a 20% discount. No hassle of mail-in rebates. Shipping is easy and free.
