We hate being the bearer of bad news, but Johnson & Johnson recently announced that they are discontinuing their popular Acuvue TruEye contacts due to supply chain issues.
When will TruEye be discontinued?
Acuvue will discontinue TruEyes in the US starting on April 1st, 2023. This means you have a few more months to work with your doctor to find a suitable replacement lens. We also have some recommendations below on which lenses to try.
Why is TruEye discontinued?
All contact lens manufacturers are dealing with supply chain issues and can't get their raw materials in time to meet production goals. Acuvue is discontinuing TruEye so they can focus on their more popular or newer products. By discontinuing TruEye, they can put their resources behind those other products instead.
How do I stock up on Acuvue TruEye?
You can purchase Acuvue TruEye until April 1st, 2023. If you want to stock up, make sure to get your order in ahead of that date. Supplies are limited and it will be harder to fill orders as the discontinuation date gets closer. We recommend stocking up with 90-packs as soon as you can.
4 Alternatives to Acuvue TruEye
It can be difficult to find a new contact lens when your favorite brand is discontinued. That's why we put together a list of some popular alternatives to Acuvue TruEye. Contact lens prescriptions are brand specific, so make sure you visit your local eye doctor to get a new prescription before purchasing contacts.
Acuvue Moist is another affordable daily lens from the maker of TruEye. It has been around for a while, so it is sold for a much lower price than newer products. Acuvue Moist has had a loyal following of wearers for the last 15 years. If you need an affordable daily option, discuss Acuvue Moist with your doctor.
Acuvue Oasys 1-Day
If you want to move to a slightly higher quality daily lens, then Acuvue Oasys 1-Day might be the right one for you. This is one of our top selling daily lenses for a reason! It is a daily version of the popular Acuvue Oasys 2-week lenses. If you want a step up in quality, discuss Acuvue Oasys 1-Day with your eye doctor.
Acuvue just unveiled a brand new daily lens called Acuvue Max. It is a top of the line product designed for those who spend all day starting at screens (which is probably most of us!). Acuvue Max is a little pricy since it is a brand new contact lens, but if you struggle with dry eye from too much screen time it might be just what you are looking for!
Dailies Total 1
Dailies Total1 is another top of the line daily contact lens. It is one of the most expensive daily lenses on the market right now, but people consistently review it as the most comfortable lens they have ever worn.
