SAN RAMON, Calif., May 11, 2020—Building on the expansion launched in December, U.S. eye care professionals now have access to even more prescription options for CooperVision clariti® 1 day toric contact lenses. Expanded options for axes in the -2.25 cylinder power and plus powers are immediately available for shipment. clariti® 1 day toric now offers the largest number of prescription options of any silicone hydrogel 1-day toric contact lens.1

“While the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically reduced the number of eye exams taking place—and therefore the number of contact lens fittings—many practices are reopening or preparing to reopen,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Senior Director of Professional and Academic Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “Once patients are back in the exam lane, the full range of clariti® 1 day toric prescription options will enable practitioners to fit a greater number of astigmatic patients in silicone hydorgel 1-day lenses than ever before.1

CooperVision’s clariti® 1 day toric lenses are manufactured using a high precision, automated process for excellent optical performance and consistent correction of astigmatism. The lenses also provide excellent rotational stability, with nearly 100 percent of lenses stabilizing within 10° or less from the optimum position within three minutes of dispensing.2 clariti® 1 day toric silicone hydrogel contact lenses deliver up to 2x the oxygen transmissibility of some conventional 1-day toric hydrogel contact lenses,3 so patients receive 100 percent of the oxygen that their corneas need.
