JOHNSON & JOHNSON VISION CARE LAUNCHES TEAR-INSPIRED LENS. ACUVUE OASYS’ 1-Day with HydraLuxeâ„¢ Technology is designed to keep contact lens wearers comfortable throughout demanding days (think digital devices and dry air). This is achieved through tear-like molecules that mimic mucins to lubricate and moisturize the eyes. Enlarged optics also help contact lens wearers see clearly, even when pupils enlarge in low light, and an increased lens diameter ensures full corneal limbus coverage during blinking.

The results from the SightRisk USA questionnaire will help identify younger patients with risk profiles so that ECPs can make recommendations that may delay or even prevent the onset of blindness from AMD. The patients fill out the risk assessment via an editable PDF (via fax or email) before their appointment, and the staff inputs their answers, along with the ECP’s answers to five clinical questions, into the SightRisk portal. After risks are calculated, a report with unique recommendations is generated. The report can be easily integrated with existing patient history forms.
