Toric Acuvue Lenses
Toric contact lenses from Acuvue by Johnson & Johnson
Toric contact lenses are especially produced for wearers with astigmatism which is why these Acuvue lenses have the suffix “for Astigmatism”. People with astigmatism experience a blurred vision. This is caused by an unusually warped cornea. Toric lenses therefore need a special shape and require a stable position to provide optimal view. The shape is defined by your values of “cylinder” and “axis” which are specified exclusively for eyes with this condition. A fixed position can be achieved by either a blink-induced adjustment or a prism in the lower area of the lens. The used method depends on the manufacturer.

Acuvue is a contact lens series produced by Johnson & Johnson, a well-known manufacturer of consumer goods, pharmaceuticals and healthcare products. Acuvue is their only contact lens brand which means these lenses get the full attention and stand for high innovation and great quality. The first Acuvue products were step stones in the history of the contact lens development. Johnson & Johnson released the first disposable lens “Acuvue” in 1988 and also the first daily disposable lens “1-Day Acuvue” in 1995. All products have been constantly improved and the results are the state-of-the-art regarding comfort and healthiness.
