By: Kyla Gutsche - Published: • References: bausch
Nike and Bausch & Lomb have teamed up to bring you the ultimate racquet sport weapon—a contact lens that filters out blue light to reduce glare and improve the visibility of moving targets. 

What is the Nike MAXSIGHT™ Sport-Tinted Contact Lens by Bausch & Lomb?

The result of an alliance between Nike and Bausch & Lomb, Nike MAXSIGHT is a soft contact lens that will be available in two glare-reducing tints that selectively filter specific wavelengths of light within the visible spectrum to aid visual performance during various outdoor athletic activities.

     
Can you describe the two tints of Nike MAXSIGHT lenses and what makes them different?
The Grey-Green tint is designed for activities that occur in bright, sunny conditions. The Amber tint is designed for cloudy or variable light conditions.

     
How is this different from cosmetic lenses?
Cosmetic lenses are typically only tinted in the portion of the contact lens that covers the iris and are for enhancing or changing eye color. Nike MAXSIGHT tints cover the entire lens and are used to enhance contrast of objects relative to their background.

     
Is this is a replacement for sunglasses?
No, while Nike MAXSIGHT reduces sun glare and filters 95% of UVA and UVB light and more than 90% of blue light, they are not substitutes for protective UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because Nike MAXSIGHT does not cover the entire eye and ocular tissue. 

     
Who is the target audience for Nike MAXSIGHT lenses?
New and existing contact lens wearers active in outdoor sports and recreation.

     
What parameters will be available for Nike MAXSIGHT lenses?
Lenses will be available from +4.00 to -9.00D including plano for both tints.

     
Will you be offering in-office sales materials and collateral items for my practice?
Yes, high-end, multi-page brochures and wall posters are available. 

     
Are Nike MAXSIGHT lenses cleared through the FDA?
Yes. Nike MAXSIGHT received FDA clearance on 04/26/05.

     
How long can my patients wear a pair of lenses?
Nike MAXSIGHT is a daily wear lens that should be cleaned and disinfected after each use and replaced monthly. 

     
Is this a replacement for a patient’s current contact lens?
No, Nike MAXSIGHT is designed for outdoor use during sporting activities and would be an add-on to current contact lens purchases. 

     
Will Nike MAXSIGHT lenses be available for astigmatic patients?
The initial product is a single vision spherical design only. 

     
How can I get a Nike MAXSIGHT™ fit set for my practice?

Are Nike MAXSIGHT lenses intended for use during normal daily activities?
No, Nike MAXSIGHT contact lenses are designed for use during sporting activities only. They distort color perception and therefore should not be used for normal daily activities.
  
    
Can Nike MAXSIGHT contact lenses be worn by children?
Nike MAXSIGHT can be worn by children and teenagers, however this is dependent on individual patient needs as assessed by an eye care professional.
