ACUVUE VITA – Now for Astigmatism

If you are a monthly contact lens wearer, and have astigmatism, you know how limited your choice is for disposable soft contact lenses.

You deserve a contact lens that can handle your astigmatism and your active lifestyle all month long. Well, we are proud to announce a new product, just for you!

Introducing, ACUVUE VITA for ASTIGMATISM: a new addition to the VITA line of soft contact lenses that combines two of the latest innovations in vision and comfort in a monthly lens:

  • Eyelid Stabilized Design works naturally with both eyelids to help the lens stabilize quickly and maintain position, making sure your lenses stay in place and more resistant to gravity or head tilt.
  • HydraMax Technology is a non-coated silicone hydrogel formulation balanced to help maximize and maintain hydration throughout the contact lens—providing lasting comfort throughout the month.
  • The highest level of UV protection available in a contact lens

If you are unsatisfied with your current monthly contact lenses, NEW ACUVUE VITA for ASTIGMATISM with HydraMax Technology might be the right fit for you.

Visit Robson Optical today to meet with an experienced optician to discuss your vision needs and to be fitted for the right contact lenses for you.

*Class 1: Must transmit less than 10% (<10%) of UVA and 1% (<1%) of UVB. UV-blocking percentages are based on an average across the wavelength spectrum.
Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE® Brand

Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye care professional. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, contact your eye care professional immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional and ask for a Patient Instruction Guide, call 1-800-267-5098 or visit acuvue.ca.

† Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.

*WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care professional for more information.
