More information about Acuvue 2
Acuvue 2 are disposable contact lenses which can be used for two weeks when worn daily or for one week's extended wear. Easy to apply and easy to remove and clean, they are ideal for first time contact lens wearers.
Acuvue 2 have a blue surface tint, making them easy to see in the pack or on your fingertip. Ultra-thin, they also bear an inverse marker so if you see the numbers '123' reversed, you know you have the lens inside out. They consist of 58% water and offer a high level of oxygen permeability, allowing up to 88% of available oxygen to reach the eye, keeping it moist and comfortable throughout the period of wear. The lens diameter is 14.0 mm, with a choice of 8.3 mm or 8.7 mm base curves.
Acuvue 2 contact lenses offer both UV-A and UV-B protection, reducing 88% to 99% the amount of harmful radiation reaching the eye, but you should continue to wear appropriate eye protection in sunny conditions. They are available in powers ranging from +8.00 to -12.00.
Alternative contact lenses
Acuvue Oasys have now replaced Acuvue 2 as Johnson & Jonson's premium 2-weekly lens. They use HYDRACLEAR® PLUS to provide your eyes with extra moisture and comfort throughout wear.
