How does PureVision compare?
PureVision vs Air Optix
PureVision2 and Air Optix Plus HydraGlyde are both silicone hydrogel lenses and can also be worn as extended wear contact lenses. They offer a longer contact lens wearing time than other hydrogel lenses and suitable for up to 16 hours of wear. They even share a similar water content, so what sets them apart?
Air Optix Plus HydraGlyde allows a slightly higher amount of oxygen through the lens to your eye compared to PureVision. And, Air Optix uses SmartShield technology to prevent the build-up of protein and deposits on the lenses. This contributes towards a healthier and hydrated lens wearing experience which is highly beneficial for contact lens wearers of today’s digital environment.
PureVision vs Acuvue Oasys
Acuvue Oasys contact lenses are considered a healthier wearing option than PureVision2 and has a higher DK/t value of 147. Thus, allows more oxygen to reach the eye for a more hydrated and breathable lens wear.
Acuvue Oasys also shares a silicone hydrogel design like PureVision2 but offers a two weekly disposable wearing schedule and up to one week of extended wear.
