MyDay® toric: the most prescription options of any 1-day lens

MyDay® Toric

While some manufacturers have discontinued astigmatic parameters, in November 2022, CooperVision expanded its parameter range of MyDay® toric, increasing its range by nearly 70%. With the additional prescription options, MyDay® toric matches the industry-leading range of Biofinity® toric2-3.  What this means for optometry students and eye care professionals is that it will enable them to fit more than nine out of 10 of their patients with astigmatism in a silicone hydrogel 1-day lens4

“Through our partnership with eye care professionals, we understand that they want the freedom of choice for their patients. CooperVision’s Biofinity® toric is the most recommended reusable soft toric lens by ECPs. Now, that continuous innovation enables ECPs to offer their patients with astigmatism a MyDay® daily disposable contact lens in the same, unmatched range6 of Biofinity® toric,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Vice President of Professional and Government Affairs, Americas, CooperVision.

MyDay® toric is available in 4,392 prescription options with the following parameters:


Sphere Power (DS)

Cylinder (DC)

Axes °

Plano to -6.00D (0.25D steps)

+0.25D to +6.00D (0.25D steps)





Around the clock, 10-180°

-6.50D to -10.00D (0.50D steps)

+6.50D to +8.00D (0.50D steps)

CooperVision’s MyDay® toric lenses combine the proven optic design features7 of Biofinity® toric—the most prescribed toric lens on the market7—with the premium silicone hydrogel 1-day material of MyDay®. This revered toric technology5, called Optimized Toric Lens Geometry, provides uniform horizontal thickness, a large toric optic zone, a smooth, continuous ballast and an optimized ballast toric design for a stable, comfortable fit.

In addition, the MyDay® family of lenses is made with Aquaform® Technology, which provides a unique balance of high oxygen permeability, a naturally wettable material, and optimum modulus. The lens provides ease of insertion and built-in UV blocking (86% of UVA and 97% of UVB rays*), helping to minimize the transmission of harmful UV rays.

“I have had a lot of success fitting patients in MyDay® toric. I find that the lens is very stable on-eye” said Travis Pfeifer, Class of 2023, SUNY College of Optometry, “This usually leads to the first lens working well. Also, the expanded parameters mean that I don’t have to worry if a lens will be available, especially for many of the patients I see with higher than average prescriptions.”

To help streamline the fitting process and minimize chair time, CooperVision also offers the OptiExpert fitting app8. The easy-to-use app includes a toric calculator which calculates and suggests the recommended diagnostic CooperVision toric contact lens for the individual patient.

*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. Patients should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed.
