Myths and Misconceptions

Many of you have wandered through the aisles of some stores and discovered drops that claim they prevent, delay or eliminate cataracts. I know that such a product would be fantastic. It would be similar to preventing the normal aging changes that we will all experience. Too good to be true...If it sounds that great, maybe there is a catch. Currently there is no product on the market, approved by the FDA, that can make these claims. If you pick up the drops' bottle and read the fine print, you will see that it indicates this to be the case. We might be able to delay cataracts by limiting our exposure to UV light through the use of UV filtered sunglasses and of course, staying out of the sun. But ultimately, as we age we will develop cataracts. When you can no longer see well enough to perform what you feel is important on a daily basis, and after an exam you are informed that this is due to cataracts, there is always a surgical option.
Up to this moment investing in the "magical drops", will only provide additional lubrication to your eyes.

Recently, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care introduced 1-Day Acuvue TruEye, the first FDA-approved silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens, in the United States. Since the lenses are replaced daily, there is no need for contact lenses cases or solutions. Acuvue TruEye lenses transmit significantly more oxygen to the eye, which may mean fewer red and dry eyes during contact lens wear.
