Posted on 26 November 2014

CibaVision Alcon has recently released the Dailies AquaComfort Plus Toric daily disposable lenses. They are made with the same dual thin zone Precision Curve Lens Design as the Focus Dailies Toric contact lenses, but offers much more comfort due to its new Blink Activated moisture technology. Moisturising your eye with every blink, providing all day comfort and clear, stable vision. Perfect for astigmatic patients who enjoy an active lifestyle.

AquaComfort Plus Toric

The contact lenses are manufactured from Nelfilcon A, a new hydrogel material. The Nelfilcon A lens is ~69% water and ~31% Nelfilcon A polymer; this design provides better ocular comfort compared to other daily disposable contact lenses. During the manufacturing process, molecules known as Polyviny alcohol (PVA) are incorporated into the Nelfilcon A polymer. Small amounts of PVA are released into the tear film during contact lens wear and stabilizes the tears. The pressure applied onto the ocular surface during a blink activates the release of PVA; hence it is said to be blink activated. Furthermore, compared to the traditional contact lens materials, Nelfilcon A has a better surface wettability, thus better lubricity and comfort for patients.
