Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Hydraluxe Review
Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Hyrdaluxe Contacts
In the past decade, Acuvue Oasys biweekly contacts have gained significant notoriety, but doctors will always prefer to prescribe daily contacts over any other modality. Because of this, back in 2015, Johnson and Johnson introduced the Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Hydraluxe contacts for easy use and ultimate comfort. As a daily version of their most popular lens, this brand is quickly becoming many contact-wearers go-to contact lenses.
Hydraluxe and Lens Comfort
To keep your eyes hydrated and comfortable the entire time you’re wearing contacts, Acuvue Oasys’ 1-Day lenses have been formulated with specialized Hydraluxe Technology. This technology allows for natural tear-like properties to be produced by your contact lenses during wear; by mimicking your eye’s natural qualities, you will hardly even realize you’re wearing contacts. However, with how comfortable they are, you can’t forget to take them out at the end of the night.
On top of their Hydraluxe technology, Acuvue Oasys 1-Days are also made from high-quality silicone hydrogel material which allows for a better flow of oxygen to your eyes. With more oxygen comes better comfort, and with better comfort comes ultimate satisfaction.
These daily contacts make handling easier than ever before. Every pair on contacts come with a visibility tint so you’re able to see your contact more easily when in its case or even in your eye if you look hard enough. Even though the lenses themselves have a light blue tint, this does not affect your natural eye color whatsoever. Rather, it just makes it more effortless to find your contacts either when putting them in or taking them out.
Along with this tint, the contacts also have letters in the lenses themselves to let you know if your contact is inside-out or not. Without these, it can become quite tricky to decipher whether or not your contact is facing the right way. By including these letters, you can avoid discomfort and save yourself some serious time. Acuvue Oasys makes contact wearing a walk in the park.
Does Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Have a Lens For Astigmatism?
In the case that you suffer from astigmatism, Acuvue Oasys has a toric lens option for you. Though these contacts do not contain the same Hydraluxe Technology that the typical spherical lenses do, they do work extra closely with the movement of your eye to stay steady and in the correct position all day long. With Acuvue Oasys’ 1-Day for Astigmatism, you don’t have to worry about your contacts shifting as your eyes do; they also come with extra-strong UV protection for added assurance.
Does Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Have a Lens for Presbyopia?
Currently, Acuvue Oasys does not offer a 1-Day Hydraluxe option for those with presbyopia, though this could change in the future. They do, however, offer a 1-Day Moist Multifocal lens that can provide you with all the comfort, hydration, and ease you could want from a multifocal daily lens. In the case that these contacts pique your interest, always discuss with your eye doctor to make sure they’re the right type of contacts for you.
You also have the choice of purchasing Acuvue Oasys 2-Week for Presbyopia option. This brand also provides the multifocal lens you’re looking for, only you can wear the same pair for two weeks before having to toss them, versus one day with the dailies.

Powers and Parameters
Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Hydraluxe are available in powers ranging from -12.00 to +8.00. They also come in two different base curves, so you must consult with your doctor first before deciding which lens is best for you.
For Acuvue Oasys 1-Day Hydraluxe for Astigmatism, the powers range from +4.00 to -9.00 with cylinder powers of -0.75, -1.25, -1.75, and -2.25.
As the name suggests, this brand of Acuvue Oasys contacts is a one-day daily disposable modality. This means that you cannot wear them for more than one day-- especially overnight. These types of contacts are not meant for overwear in any capacity, and they must be tossed out at the end of the day with a fresh pair being used every time you wear them. If you’re not a fan of daily wear contacts, you can choose to purchase Acuvue Oasys’ 2-week option instead.
Note: If you plan on taking your daily contact lenses out for a nap or to go swimming, we recommend storing them in Biotrue, RevitaLens, or Opti-free Pure Moist contact lens solutions.

Pros and Cons
Even though they’re one of the best, Acuvue Oasys 1-Day still has its pros and cons. For easy reading, we’ve listed them below.
- Daily contacts are more hygienic options, as throwing them out at the end of the day and opening a fresh pair prevents the potential for cross-contamination or bacteria build-up.
- Acuvue Oasys’ 1-Day Hydraluxe Technology creates natural tears and mimics your eye’s basic functions to provide ultimate comfort and hydration.
- These lenses are slightly tinted with a blue hue for easy handling and application; they also include inside-out markers to avoid discomfort.
- Contact lenses contain a high level of UV protection
- Due to their high quality, Acuvue Oasys 1-Day tends to be on the pricer side when compared to other contact brands.
- Still no multifocal option
- Not as many ranges
Acuvue Oasys 1-Day is one of the most popular contact brands out there, and it isn’t difficult to see why. Made out of extra-special high-quality hydrating materials and protective layers, these daily contacts are so comfortable that it becomes easy to forget you’re even wearing them. As long as you remember to take them out at the end of the day, your eyes will stay comfortable, clean, and clear each time you open a fresh pair of these premium lenses. Not to mention, they make application and removal a breeze with their added visibility tint and inside-out markets.
Though you’ll have to be prepared to spend a pretty penny on this brand, all their extra bells and whistles sure make this reputable brand worth it. We can just hope that, within the next few years, we also see the emergence of a bigger power range and presbyopia-specific lenses.
