A year-long study of 1-Day Acuvue TruEye and 1-Day Acuvue Moist brands designed to observe “real-life” contact lens wear found that subjects who wore 1-Day Acuvue Moist reported low incidence of adverse events.

Orlando, FL-A year-long study of 1-Day Acuvue TruEye and 1-Day Acuvue Moist brands designed to observe “real-life” contact lens wear found that subjects who wore 1-Day Acuvue Moist reported low incidence of adverse events.

The study observed 1,171 subjects, ages 8 to 76 years old, at 37 clinical sites across the U.S. According to the study, only 3 non-serious, contact lens-related adverse events resulted in visits to an ECP office “in 471 years of patient wear (0.6%/year including no reported symptomatic corneal infiltrative events).”

For wearers of the 1-Day Acuvue TruEye brand,  the study found the rate of adverse events that resulted in an office visit was 1.6 per year, of which 0.4% per year were symptomatic corneal infiltrative events.

“The rate of adverse events observed in this study is between 4 and 10 times lower than that reported in any other studies that evaluated reusable lenses published to date,” according to lead author Robin L Chalmers, OD, FAAO, FBCLA, clinical trial consultant. “Of 1,171 wearers of these 2 daily disposable contact lens brands, only 11, or approximately 1%, had contact lens-related complications that prompted a visit to the eye care practitioner, and only 2 events were symptomatic CIEs.”
