Vistakon®, division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., specializes in disposable contact lenses that it markets under the ACUVUE® brand name. "For more than 20 years, ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses have helped doctors build strong practices by offering patients the comfort, ocular health, and high quality of vision they desire from contact lens wear,” says Richard Wallingford, Jr., O.D., director of Professional Affairs.
ACUVUE® OASYS® with HYDRACLEAR® PLUS, the No. 1 silicone hydrogel lens on the market, is a breakthrough for contact lens wearers when their eyes feel tired and dry in challenging environments. ACUVUE® OASYS® also has an additional indication by the U.S. FDA for therapeutic use as a bandage lens for certain acute and chronic ocular conditions, and is available in a plano lens for therapeutic use (8.4 mm base curve).
ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM offer outstanding visual acuity and fit for astigmatic patients, and provide clear and consistent vision and comfort throughout the day.
ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA afford practitioners an opportunity to provide a better option for continued contact lens wear for the millions of emerging and early presbyopic contact lens wearers who have a high commitment to remaining in contact lenses. The combination of senofilcon A with STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY™ offers wearers clear and comfortable vision correction that is less dependent on distance or illumination compared to older-generation multifocal contact lenses.
1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand Contact Lenses employ breakthrough LACREON™ technology to lock in moisture throughout the day.
With ongoing investments in contact lens research and development, Vistakon continues to develop innovative new products for clinical practice.

“In partnership with the AOA, we have also committed more than $3 million to InfantSEE®, a no-cost public health program for infants,” says Dr. Wallingford. “Educating the public about the importance of eye care exams as an integral part of health care at all ages and stages of life is a core component of our educational efforts,” he adds.For more information, visit www.jnjvisioncare.com.
