CLToday Fitting Tip of the Month

August 2004

Contact Lenses Today® is edited by Dr. Joseph T. Barr and the staff of Contact Lens Spectrum.

Daily Disposable Lens Wear
I have two teenage sons in contact lenses and both wear daily disposables. I tell parents that one-day lenses for teenagers means parents will have five less things to worry about:
1. Did you clean your lenses tonight?
2. Do you need me to run to the store for solution?
3. Did you sleep in your lenses last night?
4. Did you remember to change your lenses last weekend?
5. Are you using the right solution?
One-day lenses aren't only convenient for kids, but they're convenient for parents too.

Save Patients Time by Offering Daily Convenience

1-Day ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses offer wearers the convenience of a daily disposable lens with excellent comfort and easy handling. They are also a great option for the fall allergy season. In fact, 1-DAY ACUVUE® performs better on a day-to-day basis . . .

2 out of 3 Allergy Sufferers agreed that 1-Day ACUVUE® lenses provided improved comfort over their habitual lens.
1-Day ACUVUE® is preferred 2.5 to 1 for overall comfort over any other daily disposable.
1-Day ACUVUE® is also preferred 4 to 1 for the longest comfortable wearing time over any other daily disposable brands.
1-Day ACUVUE® lenses are unsurpassed for overall handling among daily disposable brands.

Offer your patients the comfort and convenience they are looking for by providing them with 1-DAY ACUVUE® Contact Lenses, which remain the only daily disposable in the U.S. with UV blocking, visibility tint and the inside-out mark. Learn more by visiting
