Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism

If you’re one of the many people that have the eye condition called astigmatism, then you know all about blurred vision. The cause of the blurriness is the fact that the cornea is not curved correctly. Typically, one side is flatter or steeper than the other side. This means that the light rays do not bend correctly before they reach the retina. Nearly half of all adults over the age of twenty in the United States have some form of this condition. Luckily for them and you, Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism can correct the issue.

The Contact Lens For People With Astigmatism

The Acuvue Oasys can be worn for up to two weeks. What is nice about the lenses is that you can wear them for twelve to fourteen hours a day. While Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism is approved by the FDA for extended wear and overnight use, typically, it is not recommended to wear contacts while sleeping. Before doing so, you will want to discuss it with your eye doctor and never wear them longer than six nights in a row.

Pick Contacts That Don’t Dry Out

Ironically, if you have dry eyes, a contact lens with lower water content can be better for you. If the water content is too high, it can actually pull water from your own tears. That will only make your eyes that much drier. Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism have 38% water content. They also have a higher oxygen transmission which makes them even more breathable, which is great when it comes to comfort.

Keeping A Stable Eye On The Prize

There is nothing worse than having your contact lens moving to where it shouldn’t be. Stability is important and the Acuvue brand provides plenty of it. Instead of the one channel of stability typically found at the bottom of the lens, there are four areas of stability. This helps your contacts to stay where they need to be and keep your eyes focused. In studies, the four channel lens performs three times better than the single channel lens.
