EYE FOCUS | COVER STORY “This study revealed that spectacle-only wearers are not only interested in wearing contact lenses, but that they also benefit from the light-reducing properties of the study contact lenses” • 87% said they were more likely to try contact lenses now based on their experience with ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions compared to the past; • 86% said their day was less disrupted by light when wearing ACUVUE OASYS with Transi- tions; and • 80% said ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions fit their busy lifestyle. “This study revealed that spectacle-only wearers are not only interested in wearing contact lenses, but that they also benefit from the light-reducing properties of the study contact lenses,” said John R. Buch, OD, MS, FAAO and Senior Principal Re- search Optometrist at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. who conducted the study. The investigation of the ACUVUE OASYS with Tran- sitions included a neophyte population to test the hypothesis that at least half of the patients would be successfully fitted with the lens in terms of physiology, mechanical fit, comfort, vision and handling of the test lens after four weeks of wear. This study was a five-visit, single-arm, open label, bilateral dispensing study at 11 study sites involving 127 subjects. The results of this new study were first shared by Dr. Buch at the American Academy of Optometry meet- ing (Academy 2019) in Orlando, Florida. “The fact that we saw such a high percentage of participants prefer these new contact lenses is surprising, and indicative of the wide array of benefits that ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions offer beyond vision correction.” Additional notable findings from the study participants include: • 53% reported that they had better vision in changing lighting conditions; • 60% recorded that they had better vision outdoors than with their spectacles alone; • 66% said they were less bothered by bright light; • 62% said that they had less squinting; and • 71% would recommend their eye care practi- tioner if they offered the lens.
