Johnson & Johnson Vision has also collaborated with professional baseball player Bryce Harper to serve as an ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS ambassador. Bryce is wearing ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS on the field during the 2019 season and sharing his firsthand experience through a video content series. The first episode chronicles his journey making the switch to ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS and his first time wearing the new contact lenses as he trains for the upcoming season.
"My eyes have to be in tip-top shape to recognize pitches at bat and to react quickly in the field, in all types of lighting conditions," said Bryce Harper. "Since I've been wearing ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS to get ready for the season, I'm able to squint less and see more."
National survey data from Johnson & Johnson Vision reveals that Bryce Harper isn't alone:
- About two in three Americans are bothered by some type of lighting condition on an average day.4
- Driving is the most common situation where Americans are bothered by light, with seven in 10 Americans saying they are bothered by light while driving.4
- Nearly half of Americans worry about how often they find themselves squinting due to bothersome light.4
- Most Americans (67 percent) say they can perform better, whether at work or in doing physical activities, when their eyes aren't stressed, and more than half (55 percent) of people say their eyes feel stressed after experiencing bright and harsh light.4
- More than half of Americans (56 percent) wish their eyes could keep up and adjust to different light conditions as quickly as their busy life.4
"Born out of in-depth research and development around bothersome light, including clinical trials of more than 1,000 patients, ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS is an exciting and entirely new category of contact lenses," said Thomas Swinnen, president, North America at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc. "This product will give contact lens wearers a seamless way to manage changing light conditions in their everyday lives and activities, building on our commitment to helping people see better, connect better, and live better."
ACUVUE OASYS with TRANSITIONS has been developed in collaboration with Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc. and Transitions Optical Limited, combining the respective strengths of each organization.
Johnson & Johnson Vision is the world's leader in contact lenses and Transitions Optical is the leading provider of photochromic (smart adaptive) eyeglass lenses worldwide and, with its technology, sets new standards of advance performance, ever-increasing visual comfort, and optimum harmful blue light protection.
ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions is a two-week reusable contact lens. It will be commercially available in U.S. beginning April 1. For more information or to find an eye care professional near you, visit www.acuvue.com/transitions. Follow the conversation at #SquintLessSeeMore.
Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc. and TRUE Global Intelligence, the in-house research practice of FleishmanHillard, conducted a 5-minute online survey among a nationally representative sample of 1,058 U.S. adults, 18 years of age and older, from February 11 through February 16, to explore the prevalence of light sensitivity among consumers. The margin of error is +/-3 percent at a 95 percent confidence level.
*Clinical trials have shown those aged 40-65 may be more likely to experience this benefit in the inactivated ACUVUE OASYS with Transitions lens
