Lacreon - Acuvue’s LACREON technology uses a moisture-rich, wetting agent to permanently hold water in the contact lens.

This technology keeps your eyes moist throughout the day and lets the lens glide across the surface of your eye, ensuring the lenses are cushioned and comfortable to wear.
Hydraclear Plus - Taking inspiration from the way our eye’s natural tear film works, Acuvue Hydraclear Plus technology helps to reduce dryness and keeps your eyes moist - perfect for reducing tiredness and ensuring long-lasting freshness.
HydraLuxe - Introduced in 2016, the Acuvue HydraLuxe technology helps to reduce dryness and keeps your eyes extremely moist thanks to a unique design that combines a network of tear-like molecules with breathable hydrated silicone.
