AcuvueJohnson & Johnson’s Acuvue contact lenses are 1-2 week disposable contact lenses.  Acuvue lenses can be worn as daily wear lenses for up to two weeks or continuously for up to a week.  To ensure ease of use, Acuvue lenses are made with an inside-out indicator and a light blue tint to help you find the lenses in the solution.  An ultra-thin design is used to allow a high level of oxygen to the eye.  Acuvue lenses come with UV protection to keep harmful UV rays from entering your eyes.
