Acuvue Oasys vs Moist: Which Option is Best for you?
Acuvue Oasys and Acuvue Moist – both of these contact lenses by Johnson & Johnson offer fantastic features, comfort and great value for money. Although similar, there are key differences which might make one more suitable for your lifestyle than the other.
We breakdown all the differences for you below:
Acuvue Oasys vs Moist: Wearing Schedule
The main split between these two sets of lenses is the wearing schedule. Acuvue Oasys are two-weekly lenses, meaning you’ll wear the same pair for up to two weeks. As a result, you will need to clean and store them properly.
Acuvue Moist on the other hand are daily disposable lenses. Dailies are perfect for you if you only wear contacts as and when you need them. You also don’t have to worry about cleaning or storing them.
Acuvue Oasys vs Moist: Features
Acuvue Moist and Acuvue Oasys, as with most Acuvue contacts, boast powerful technologies which work to retain moisture inside of the lens. For the latter, HYDRACLEAR® plus has been shown to lock in moisture for longer periods than Acuvue Moist, meaning they’ll stay comfortable for longer.
Then we have Oasys’ SmartShield technology, which prevents any irritating deposits from building up within the lens. This is essential for two-weekly lenses as these deposits can cause infection and discomfort.
Acuvue Oasys vs Acuvue Moist: Budget
If you’ve not already noticed, Acuvue Oasys are slightly more expensive than Acuvue Moist. This is due to the difference in wearing schedule, added comfort and build-up protection.
Overall, we recommend Acuvue Moist if you like to have contacts ready for when you need them. Whether that be playing sports etc.
Otherwise, Acuvue Oasys are one of the best 2-weekly lenses on the market – we highly recommend them for everyday contacts users.
