The company aims to manufacture a range of contacts that focus on comfort and eye care, which is the reason why they have chosen to produce most of their new lenses using a soft material instead of contacts made from firmer long lasting materials.

To give you a better idea of the types of contacts available from Johnson and Johnson contact lenses, here is a list of some of their latest and most popular products:
Johnson and Johnson Contacts Lenses for Long and Short Sightedness
Daily Disposables - 1-day Acuvue TruEye - This is one of the newest designs from Johnson and Johnson; they have taken their previous daily disposable contacts and made a few minor changes to increase the wearers overall comfort. This new product is made from 'Narafilcon A', a silicone hydrogel material that contains high levels of wetting agent which keeps your eyes surface constantly moist. This breakthrough material also allows 98% of oxygen through it; a combination of increased oxygen levels and a frictionless surface tension means no more sore red eyes at the end of the day.
Daily Replaceables - Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear - Perfect for those with long or short sightedness, this particular lens can be worn for 14 days before needing replacing or your can opt for the 6 day version instead. Over all these lenses are much cheaper than buying daily disposables, though you'll need to buy an all in one storage solution to ensure your contacts are free of bacteria and protein buildups. The lenses are made from a hydrogel material called senofilcon, which has a high liquid content and allows a high percentage of oxygen through to your eyes. The great thing about these lenses is that they have a strong UV ray blocking ability, so you'll never have to worry about eye damage from accidentally exposing your eyes to too much sunlight.
