Discount Acuvue 2


Acuvue 2 is part of the Acuvue family produced by Johnson & Johnson. It is a frequent replacement contact lens, where 2 stands for two weeks replacement. It means that you wear your Acuvue lens during the day, take them out at night and replace with a new pare after 2 weeks.

Acuvue 2 can also be used as extended wear contact lenses – wear your contact lenses straight for 7 days (without taking out at night), then throw them out.


Advantages and disadvantages of Acuvue 2

Advantages: Acuvue 2 Contact Lenses by Vistakon

  • Lens consists of 58% water, so those contacts are very comfortable and prevent eye dryness· High UV protection - up to 82% of UVA, and 97% of UVB rays are blocked. However, it is advised to wear sunglasses over the lenses anyway, because the lens only protects the iris (the area of your eye it covers)

  • Wearers of Accuvue 2 report vision even better than 20/20 (which is a naturally perfect vision) So a person wearing Acuvue lenses can see better than the one with perfectly healthy eyes

  • Acuvue 2 contact lenses has slight visibility tint – while they are in the solution they appear blue rather then clear. Visibility tint doesn’t affect your eye color, its only purpose is to make the lens easier to see in the solution and in case you drop it

  • The lens has a “123” indicator which helps you correctly insert the lens. If the numbers appear reversed you know that your contact is inside out.

  • Acuvue 2 contacts costs slightly less (depending on the retailer) than other 2 weeks replacement contact lenses


  • If you wear Acuvue 2 during the days and take it out at night, you will have to clean your lenses before insertion and after removal (unlike daily disposable lenses that don’t require any cleaning)

  • Even though most patients find Acuvue 2 contacts very comfortable, people with exceptionally sensitive eyes might experience certain discomfort wearing Acuvue. In this case you can ask your doctor to prescribe Acuvue Advance, which costs a bit more, but offers as much comfort as contact lens can offer.
