Johnson & Johnson Launches 1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lenses

(Press Release) Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. has launched 1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lenses, an industry first: the only multifocal contact lens that has been created with uniquely optimized optic designs to address the natural variations in pupil size according to age – and refractive power.


Available nationwide in doctors’ offices, the lens was developed based on years of insights of the presbyopic eye.

Most other multifocal lenses in the market are not designed to account for variations in pupil size. And, when the optical power distribution in the lens design does not closely align with the pupil size, the overall clarity of vision across distance, intermediate and near may be negatively affected.


“We know that patients struggle as they reach their mid-40s to find contact lenses that help them maintain the vision they’ve been used to,” said Dr. Kurt Moody, OD, Global Platform Director, Presbyopia, R&D at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.


“We saw the need to innovate for doctors and patients, and are proud that in clinical studies, patients wearing were achieving consistent and excellent near, intermediate and distance vision.


"Patients not only had better vision, they reported superior comfort that we attribute to the 1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lenses platform, which as a daily disposable modality also enhances convenience. We’re giving doctors the power to transform the way their presbyopic patients see and live their day-to-day lives.”
“Technological advances in materials and a skilled doctor of optometry’s understanding of each individual patient’s eye health needs have created an array of new choices and new possibilities for contact lens wearers,” said David A. Cockrell, OD, President, American Optometric Association.

“That’s why more than 38 million Americans now wear contacts and many experts are projecting significant growth in lens wear as a new generation discovers their many benefits.”

This lens features a unique aspheric center-near design for the presbyopic eye, with innovative “eye-inspired” design:

Pupil Optimization

1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lens is the only multifocal contact lens that closely matches the optical design to the pupil size for a better visual experience. 61 distance powers (in quarter diopter steps from +6.00D to -9.00D) and three ADD powers equals 183 unique designs for built-in precision. This precision delivers more consistent performance in a multifocal lens that can help minimize chair time and maximize success delivering a better experience for patients. In fact, 94% of patients were successfully fit with two pairs of lenses or less.

Hybrid Back-Curve Design

The hybrid back curve design helps deliver a superior vision experience in two ways: first, the spherical periphery helps ensure centration of the optics over the pupil, and second, the aspheric center closely mimics the natural shape of the cornea to maintain the integrity of the complex front-surface optics.

LACREON Technology

1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lenses are built on the platform and utilizes LACREON Technology, a unique process that permanently embeds the wetting agent PVP in the lens material. This PVP creates a long-lasting cushion of moisture from the lens core to the lens surface to help reduce symptoms of contact lens-related dryness.

Class 2 UV Blocking

1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Lenses block approximately 82 percent of UVA rays and 97 percent of UVB rays. Although UV-blocking contact lenses provide important added protection for patients, they should not be viewed as a stand-alone solution. Contact lenses should always be worn in conjunction with high-quality UV-blocking sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat for maximum UV protection for the eyes.

EYE-INSPIRED Design

For more than 30 years, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. has focused exclusively on improving vision through quality contact lenses, never compromising on its goal to create technologies that make meaningful differences in people’s lives.

A deep understanding of patient lifestyle and needs as well as those of eye care professionals has driven R&D to create innovative solutions with the natural function of the eye at the heart of its work. By making contact lenses based on a deep understanding of how the eye works, the ACUVUE Brand strives to maximize the eye’s function and performance during contact lens wear, giving patients and healthcare professionals a superior experience.

(PRESS RELEASE) EssilorLuxottica has made Fortune magazine’s 2019 Change the World list, taking the 17th spot on this annual prestigious list, which recognizes companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy. Among 52 companies, the Group is honored in particular for its commitment to bring good vision for everyone everywhere and eradicate poor vision, as part of its mission to help people ‘see more, be more and live life to its fullest’.

Even though a pair of eyeglasses can answer most of the world’s vision needs while protecting and framing the beauty of our eyes, the lack of awareness and access have led to a global vision crisis with severe social and economic consequences for billions of people.

The ranking highlights EssilorLuxottica’s efforts of “doing well by doing good” and how its action to address issues of vision health across the world has a significant positive social impact on people’s lives, while also representing a significant shared value opportunity. With 6.6 billion people on the planet estimated to be in need of vision correction by 2050, of which 5 billion will be affected by the myopia epidemic, taking action without delay is key.

Hence, EssilorLuxottica exists to give vision a voice and respond to the world’s growing vision needs by meeting the changing lifestyles of existing consumers and inventing new ways to reach the 2.5 billion people who suffer from uncorrected poor vision and the 6 billion people who do not protect their eyes from harmful rays.

One of the Group’s initiatives include the launch of the 2.5 New Vision Generation (2.5NVG) and BoP Innovation lab by Essilor in 2013, a line of more affordable and stylish prescription glasses targeted at the 2.5 billion people who suffer from uncorrected poor vision, of which 90% live in base-of-the-pyramid (BoP) economies. With the help of more than 600 partners – from governments to NGOs to corporates – 2.5 NVG and the BoP Innovation Lab have enabled access to a pair of glasses for more than 25 million people across 62 countries in need of vision correction, and empowered nearly 12,000 micro-entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses, providing sustainable access to vision care to 250 million people.

Luxottica as well, through its support for OneSight, an independent non-profit organization of which the company is the founding sponsor, provides access to quality vision care and glasses in underserved communities worldwide. Since 1988, OneSight has partnered with local health organizations, governments, school districts, industry leaders, doctors and volunteers impacting over 21 million people in 49 countries and counting—creating opportunity and sustainable change along the way. So far, it has established 131 sustainable centers in countries like Rwanda, China and the United States, and hosted over 1,420 charitable clinics globally.

Pleased to be recognized by Fortune on their 2019 Change the World list, Jayanth Bhuvaraghan, head of mission at EssilorLuxottica, commented: “Eradicating poor vision is not only a unique business opportunity but a big responsibility for us as an industry leader. If nothing is done, billions of people in the world will continue to suffer from uncorrected poor vision. This will not only have negative social and personal repercussions but will also severely impact various economies in the world. Therefore, we strive to drive innovation across the market with the goal of providing the best vision care solutions, creating and establishing access points, awareness for good vision and bring good vision and quality products to everyone everywhere in the world.”
