As we advance the field of ocular science, we remain focused on bringing technology that provides real benefits to those who wear our contact lenses.
A small sampling of our advancements includes:
Smart Silicone™ - A breakthrough in the world of contact lenses! Through a unique network of silicone channels for efficient oxygen transmission and optimised lens performance. This allows for a strong partnership with hydrophillics, resulting in an efficient use of silicon and a high level of oxygen permeability.
The end result is a lens that’s been clinically proven to provide exceptional satisfaction in terms of comfort, health, and handling.
Aquaform® Technology - Our Aquaform technology provides a naturally wettable material that establishes hydrogen bonds with water molecules; this holds water within the lens helping make the lens wettable without the need for surface treatments or wetting agents.
Oxygen is transmitted efficiently through the lens due to unique silicone macros that provide long chains of silicone. This unique silicone macromer features a reduced number of molecular bridges, making it softer and more flexible than older first generation silicone hydrogel lenses.
This exciting technology is only available through CooperVision in our Avaira® and Biofinity® families of contact lenses.
PC Technology™ – Simply put, our PC Technology helps our Proclear® contacts stay 96% hydrated throughout the day, helping them feel moist and comfortable.
In fact, our Proclear contacts are the only lens material cleared by the U.S. FDA for the claim: “May provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear.”
As we said, this is just a small sampling of what we have done to advance the field of contact lenses and bring more comfort and benefits to both wearers and optometrists alike.
