Acuvue TruEye contacts
Recently there has been a press release announcing a recall of the popular 1-Day Acuvue TruEye contact lenses. It’s very important to note that this recall solely affects lenses manufactured in Japan and a few other European and Asian countries. The TruEye lenses manufactured and distributed in the US are completely unaffected. The problem occurred on one manufacturing line that produces contacts for Asian distribution. It was remedied immediately.
At Park Slope Eye we have had remarkably high patient satisfaction rates with all of the Acuvue contacts that we fit – especially the TruEye lens. In addition to having an amazing safety profile and being extremely comfortable, the TruEye lens was recently certified as being in the highest class of UV blocking contacts. I have personally visited Acuvue’s world headquarters, their North American R&D division, and their North American manufacturing plant. Their industrial processes at every stage of contact lens development are state of the art.
If you are interested in trying TruEyes, I would be more than happy to fit you with a pair. Of course if another lens is more appropriate for your needs and eye health, we can try those instead.
