Johnson and Johnson has announced the launch of Acuvue Oasys, an innovative new type of contact lens that is able to adapt to changing light conditions.
The lenses incorporate Transitions Light Intelligent Technology, providing wearers with vision correction and a dynamic photochromic filter that is able to continuously balance the amount of light entering the eye.
“Johnson and Johnson has launched its new Acuvue Oasys contact lenses, which feature a filter that helps to balance the amount of light entering the eye.“
By automatically adjusting from clear to dark in response to changing light conditions, the lenses are able to reduce exposure to bright light, including filtering blue light and blocking ultraviolet rays.
The lenses will be marketed by Johnson and Johnson Vision Care, and will be made available in the first half of 2019, having undergone more than a decade of product development and clinical trials involving more than 1,000 patients.
Dr Xiao-Yu Song, global head of research and development for Johnson and Johnson Vision, said: "We are excited to bring to market a solution to help contact lens wearers manage the changing light conditions they face every day in their modern, active lives."
