The COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily impacted our Optical Retailers’ ability to schedule contact lens appointments across the region, with stores either being closed or significantly reducing fitting capacity. In order to ensure you and your patients have enough time to migrate, and therefore continue benefitting from ACUVUE®’s wide range of contact lenses, we would like to inform you of the extended exit date of 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® from our range. 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® will now be available until 30th June 2022.*
The reasons for this extension are as follows:
1. Protecting Patient Supply:
Our number one priority is to maintain supply to your patients whilst your business goes through the impact of COVID 19, and to then work closely with you and your teams to facilitate a smooth migration period. We hope this then enables the protection of your business and provides you with transparency around supply, to best manage the successful transition of this product from your business.
2. Alternative ACUVUE® offering for patients:
Today’s patients look to seamlessly wear their lenses in diverse environments for longer throughout each day.1 For these patients, ACUVUE® now provides ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day, a daily disposable spherical contact lens specially designed to keep up with their busy lifestyles.²
Featuring HydraLuxe™ Technology, a unique Tear-Inspired Design that mimics the natural properties of tears and helps to stabilise the tear film to provide exceptional comfort all day long3 and makes vision clearer, brighter and sharper.4#
95% of Eye Care Professionals have said they would recommend ACUVUE® OASYS 1-Day as an upgrade for patients wearing 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye®.5
We will work closely with you to communicate the benefits of the latest innovation to your current 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® patients, guiding them to trial and upgrade.
3. Future innovations:
In order to continue our mission to provide breakthrough innovations to you and your patients; we have proactively looked to simplify our portfolio to give us greater flexibility within our manufacturing sites.
Please continue to work closely with us to best manage the migration effectively from your business using all available resources.
*1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® will be unavailable in the UK and Ireland from July 2022. It may still be available in other markets or online.
