CooperVision has expanded parameters for clariti 1 day toric in a move the company says will give optometrists the opportunity to fit an even broader range of astigmatic patients in a silicone hydrogel 1-day contact lens. The lenses will be available in around-the-clock axes1 boosting clariti 1 day toric’s parameter options by nearly 50%.
clariti 1 day toric silicone hydrogel contact lenses deliver up to three times the oxygen transmissibility of 1-day hydrogel contact lenses
“CooperVision is known worldwide for toric contact lens innovation and performance. This latest range extension illustrates our commitment to providing a wide range of stable, comfortable silicone hydrogel 1-day toric options, allowing as many astigmatic patients as possible to be fitted,” said Gary Orsborn, OD, Vice President of Global Professional and Clinical Affairs, CooperVision. “From sphere to toric to multifocal, and in every modality, CooperVision continues to offer the broadest range of soft contact lenses in the industry to enable today’s optometrists to meet the unique vision correction needs of virtually any patient.”
According to CooperVision, the clariti 1 day toric features a high-precision design that delivers exceptional optical performance and consistent correction of astigmatism. The lenses also provide excellent rotational stability, with nearly 100% of lenses stabilising within 10º or less from the optimum position in three minutes from dispensing. WetLoc technology helps to ensure the entire clariti 1 day lens surface is continuously moist and mimics the moisture dispersion of naturally healthy eyes. clariti 1 day toric silicone hydrogel contact lenses deliver up to three times the oxygen transmissibility of 1-day hydrogel contact lenses,2 so patients receive 100% of the oxygen their corneas need.
With the addition of around-the-clock axes (indicated in blue), optometrists can fit clariti 1 day toric with parameters indicated in Figure 1.
- Around the clock axes apply only to the most commonly prescribed powers; reference parameter chart for details.
- Based on manufacturer’s published data, clariti 1 day has Dk/t of 86. Compared to Proclear 1 day (Dk/t 28), 1-day Acuvue Moist (Dk/t 33.3), Dailies Aquacomfort Plus (Dk/t 26) and Biotrue ONEday (Dk/t) 42.
