Two Studies Measure Performance of ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions Light Intelligent Technology Contact Lenses in Simulated Sunlight, Day and Night Driving Conditions
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson & Johnson Vision today announced that data from two new studies on the visual effects of photochromic contact lenses will be presented at the 2018 American Academy of Optometry Annual Meeting in San Antonio (Academy 2018 San Antonio). Both studies are among the 'most newsworthy' at the meeting, as selected by the American Academy of Optometry. These are the first scientific presentations focused on photochromic contact lens technology since the lenses received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in April.
Comparing the visual effects of photochromic and clear contact lenses
"In real-world environments, people are exposed to a variety of lighting conditions, and sunlight can be one of the most disruptive conditions for eyes and visual function," said Billy R. Hammond, PhD, Professor of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Georgia. "Based on these study results, we see that photochromic contact lenses can provide true visual benefits during outdoor activities."
Dr. Hammond will present study findings at Academy 2018 San Antonio on November 7, 1:15 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. in Room 303 of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Dr. Hammond's research was funded by Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.
Photochromic contact lenses' impact on daytime and nighttime driving performance
"Interestingly, subjects wearing the photochromic contact lenses were able to read road signs from about 17.8 meters farther away at night than subjects wearing non-photochromic lenses,"1 said John R. Buch, OD, Senior Principal Research Optometrist at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.
Dr. Buch will present study findings during Academy 2018 San Antonio, November 8, 8:30 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. in Hemisfair Ballroom C1 of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Important information for contact lens wearers:
†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 practitioner for more information.
