Johnson & Johnson Vision presented data on the ACUVUE® OASYS MAX 1-Day Brand Family of lenses and research on myopia progression, along with learning opportunities and support of Sight for Kids ® at the Academy 2023 New Orleans meeting. Studies being presented showed that 90% of eye care professionals agreed that ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-Day contact lenses provide unprecedented levels of comfort † and 99% agreed that ACUVUE® OASYS MAX 1-Day MULTIFOCAL contact lenses provided patients all-day comfort.†
“We are driven by the opportunity that exists to make vision possible for patients at every stage of life,” said Lori Tierney, President of Americas, Johnson & Johnson Vision. ‡ “At the American Academy of Optometry annual meeting, we’re putting a spotlight on our industry-leading innovations that help pediatric and adult patients see better, while also shining a spotlight on the importance of prioritizing diversity in the optometry community and enabling access to eye care for all.”
A Large-Scale in Practice Evaluation of a Novel Daily Disposable Spherical Contact Lens
Kurt Moody, OD: An in-practice survey was conducted among 81 eye care professionals to evaluate the clinical performance of more than 1,200 patients that were fitted with ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-Day contact lenses. Findings showed that 90% of eye care professionals agreed that ACUVUE OASYS MAX 1-Day contact lenses provide unprecedented levels of comfort, † 96% agreed that these lenses deliver on the needs of patients with intense digital device usage † and 91% also agreed that these lenses are their first choice for upgrading patients. †
A Large-Scale in Practice Evaluation of a Novel Daily Disposable Multifocal Contact Lens
Ed Wygonik, OD: The in-practice survey among 81 eye care professionals also examined the clinical performance of ACUVUE ® OASYS MAX 1-Day MULTIFOCAL contact lenses and included more than 870 patients that were fitted with these lenses. The findings showed 95% of eye care professionals agreed that MAX MULTIFOCAL lenses meet the needs of their
presbyopic patients † and 99% agreed it provided patients all-day comfort. † Among the 390 patient surveys received, 3 out of 4 agreed that these lenses provided clear vision at night and crisp, † clear vision in all lighting conditions. †
Can we really distinguish ‘non-responders’ to myopia control interventions? Alex Nixon, OD: A sub-analysis of the Low-concentration Atropine for Myopia Progression (LAMP) study, a robustly designed, placebo-controlled trial with children aged 4 to 12 years, was conducted to calculate the efficacy for each intervention by subject age and overall myopia progression. The results showed that, within each intervention group, faster progressors
achieved a similar absolute reduction in axial elongation and myopia progression as the slower progressors, and that use of the terms ‘responders’ and ‘non-responders’ is inappropriate.
