Higher Quantity Packaging Provides Easier Dispensing for Practitioners and Greater Convenience for Wearers

PLEASANTON, Calif., March 2, 2017 CooperVision, Inc. today announced the availability of a 90-pack configuration for clariti® 1 day toric contact lenses, which provide astigmatic patients with the healthier1 advantages of silicone hydrogel and the convenience of the 1-day modality. Currently, clariti® 1 day toric is the only silicone hydrogel, 1-day lens for astigmatism broadly available in the United States.

“The 1-day contact lens category continues to grow as a whole, and increasingly, eye care professionals are choosing silicone hydrogel for their 1-day patients,” said Inga Grote-Ebbs, Director, 1-day Brands for CooperVision. “As the only widely-available silicone hydrogel, 1-day toric lens on the U.S. market today, clariti® 1 day toric extends the benefits of increased oxygen and all-day comfort to wearers with astigmatism. The addition of 90-pack cartons enables practitioners to prescribe up to a three-month supply of lenses in one box—a convenience they are accustomed to with other lenses, and can now share with their 1-day astigmatic wearers.”

The world’s only complete family of 1-day silicone hydrogel soft contact lenses, all clariti® 1 day options feature high water content to support excellent all-day comfort. WetLoc™ technology ensures the entire lens surface is continuously moist and mimics the moisture dispersion of naturally healthy eyes. clariti® 1 day lenses have a high oxygen transmissibility (up to 3x the Dk/t of some hydrogel 1-day toric lenses2), allowing for 100 percent corneal oxygen consumption1 and helping to maintain ocular health.

clariti® 1 day toric lens’ power ranges include plano to -9.00D (0.50D steps after -6.00D) with cylinder options of –0.75D, –1.25D, and –1.75D in axes of 10°, 20°, 60°, 70°, 80°, 90°, 100°,110°, 120°, 160°, 170°, and 180°; +0.25D to +4.00D (0.25D steps) with cylinder options of –0.75D, –1.25D, and –1.75D in axes of 20°, 70°, 90°, 110°, 160°, and 180°; and  plano to -9.00D (0.50D steps after -6.00D) with a cylinder power of -2.25 in axes of 10°, 20°, 90°, 160°, 170° and 180°.
