Precision 1 Daily Contact Lenses Have Arrived
Posted by Vernon Optometry on
Alcon has recently released a new daily wear option for contact lens wearers in Canada. This daily lens utilizes new Smart Surface technology to address the most common issues for contact lens wearers i.e. blurry vision, poor comfort and a lack of UV protection.
Did you know that approximately 20% of contact lens wearers discontinue wearing lenses during the first year often due to comfort issues? Smart Surface technology from Alcon helps address this by creating a thicker layer of moisture on the surface of the lens to help prevent symptoms of dry eyes. This water gradient technology steps up from a 51% water content at the core of the lens to 80% on the surface. This moisture layer on the lens surface is only 2-4 microns thick but it makes all the difference when it comes to contact lens comfort.
