Unlock summer’s sights with ACUVUE® contact lenses

Just in time for summer–lockdown has been lifted, and many of the rules we've lived with over the past year-and-a-half are in the roadmap rearview. While we're all excited to be on the right path, revisiting some of the places we once did is still a subject on everyone's mind.

Which begs the question, how ready are you to get back out there? 

Find out which of these three most common outlooks is on par with your summer plans and how ACUVUE® contact lenses can help unlock the best of this season’s sights.

Ready for reopening


Have you missed the excitement of the crowd? There’s something about the energy of a packed stadium or singing along to your favourite songs at a sold-out music venue that you just can’t find elsewhere. For those gung-ho to get back into the action, lenses are a great way to enjoy all the buzz without missing a beat. Skip fogging up your specs on the dancefloor or worrying about them flying off when looping upside-down on a rollercoaster. In ACUVUE® brand contact lenses, you’ll experience all the thrills of summertime with clear and consistent vision. 

With travel restrictions eased, If you're part of the group ready to dust off their passport for a much-needed exotic escape–ACUVUE OASYS 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ Technology is unbeaten on comfort and the perfect starting point to put your eyes in holiday mode. Daily disposable lenses are great for on-the-go activities, and easy to bring in your baggage for an overseas adventure without needing to tote a cleaning kit or solutions.

Slow and steady


Maybe you like the idea of going back to your old lifestyle but are still a little on the fence. It’s totally acceptable to feel hesitant about reintroducing everything all at once, so take it day by day. Gradually introduce activities back into your daily routine and when you do, see how wearing your contact lenses can make a big difference.

Spending more hours outside is a summer staple and a critical time to shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. As the only major brand to block more than 97% UVB and 82% UVA rays as standard, ACUVUE® contact lenses coupled with protective sunglasses are a step in the right direction to safeguard your eyes this summer.*

Another safe step you can take in adjusting to life after lockdown is staying true to your comfort zone. Keep dining al fresco, catching up at park picnics, and enjoying the breeze on a beach blanket until you’re 100% ready to reenter crowded indoor establishments later down the line. 

Happy at home


Have you embraced the “new normal”? There are several positive aspects of the lockdown life that we’ve grown accustomed to over the last 18-ish months. Between quality time at home with hands-on DIY projects to cutting out long work commutes, not everyone is raring to jump back into business as usual. 

If you’re happy with your current routine at home but wish to pamper your peepers with some TLC this summer, ACUVUE® contact lenses feature a hydrating agent to help your eyes feel refreshed throughout the day. Ideal for weekends spent exercising in the garden or firing up the BBQ for a few friends and family in your bubble. 

Still want to socially distance but like the idea of getting out of the house to try something new? It’s prime season to view a blockbuster at one of the UK's many drive-in cinemas–and with ACUVUE® contact lenses, you’ll be assured to catch every plot point without any glasses glare off your windscreen. 

Which group are you in?

No matter which approach fits your outlook on unlocking, having a clear vision of your summer plans will help you enjoy this season in a shining light. And if you’re still uncertain which group you fall into, at least we can all agree that ACUVUE® OASYS 1-DAY contact lenses will give you the flexibility and freedom from restrictions to find your summer groove. For lens wearers in need of a toric option, ACUVUE® OASYS 1-DAY for Astigmatism are specifically designed to keep your vision more stable during any activity you’re ready to revisit over the upcoming months.
