discontinued acuvue contact lens update

Johnson and Johnson Vision has announced the discontinuation of several prescription ranges for it's popular Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism brand of lenses. Please note, the Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism contact lens is still available in the majority of the power ranges; only specific prescriptions are affected. In a letter to practitioners across the United States, Johnson and Johnson Vision cited the decision was based on a number of factors affecting industries around the world in 2022: short staffing at their distribution and contact center, supply chain issues, and increased product demand. The Acuvue Oasys MAX 1 Day brand of lenses recently launched in summer of 2022. In order to divert resources to the most needed prescription ranges (the company serves 43 million people globally with their Acuvue brand contact lens products), the discontinued parameters listed below were chosen because they were the least ordered prescriptions currently offered by the company. 

The following powers are no longer available:

➡️ Plus Powers (+0.25D to +6.00D)
All -2.25D & -2.75D Cylinder
All Oblique axis in -0.75D, -1.25D, & -1.75D Cyl (x30, 40, 50, 60, 120, 130, 140, 150)

➡️ Low Minus Powers (0.00D to -6.00D)
All Oblique axis in -2.25D & -2.75D Cyl (x30, 40, 50, 60, 120, 130, 140, 150)

➡️ High Minus Powers (-6.50D to -9.00D)
All Oblique and against the rule axis in -1.75D, -2.25D & -2.75D Cyl ((x30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150)

Effective as of October 3rd, 2022, diagnostic (trial) lenses for the impacted parameters will no longer be available. Boxes in these prescriptions can be purchased as supplies last. Effective January 2, 2023 these impacted parameters will no longer be available for purchase.

Additionally, Johnson and Johnson Vision announced the complete discontinuation of the Acuvue TruEye brand of daily disposable products.
