HYDRACLEAR® Technology

Our proprietary comfort technology spans three-generations—HYDRACLEAR®, HYDRACLEAR® PLUS and HYDRACLEAR® 1. Each combines the higher oxygen transmissibility of a silicone hydrogel material with exceptional wettability and a lower modulus. The result is unique contact lenses that are especially suited for patients living and working in challenging environments.

LACREON® Technology

This exclusive technology embeds a moisture-rich wetting agent directly into the lens matrix creating a cushion of moisture, similar to that found in natural tears, that won’t blink away over time. The result is reduced friction and greater end-of-day comfort.

BLINK STABILIZED™ lens design

This innovative design features four zones of stability, compared to the single zone of traditional ballast design. Lenses with BLINK STABILIZED™ are designed to realign naturally with every blink, helping to keep them from shifting and rotating. The result is clear, stable vision.

BACK

STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY™

This unique multifocal design brings together the best elements of aspheric progressive and ring lens designs, while limiting the drawbacks. It works with the eye’s natural function to provide balanced vision near, far and in between, across variable lighting conditions.

Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders.
