*NEW* ALCON – PRECISION1 ONE DAY CONTACT LENSES

Alcon Canada Alcon Canada introduces PRECISION1  Contact Lenses

 

NEW PRECISION1 ONE DAY CONTACT LENSES

PRECISION1® daily contact lenses provide lasting visual performance and comfort, through the use of SMARTSURFACE Technology - a permanent, micro-thin layer of moisture for greater than 80% lens surface water content. They're made with verofilcon A material with Class I UV-blocking capabilities to absorb more than 90% of UVA and 99% of UVB.  PRECISION1 is the first mainstream daily disposable contact lens to use SMARTSURFACE Technology to deliver lasting visual performance and comfort.

"PRECISION1 is designed to provide lasting visual performance for patients who wear their contact lenses from early morning to late at night,” said David Endicott, Chief Executive Officer, Alcon. “PRECISION1 will be well-positioned as a mainstream daily disposable that complements our premium DAILIES TOTAL1®and value-driven DAILIES®AquaComfort PLUS®contact lenses, further expanding our contact lens portfolio to give us long-term growth opportunities in 2020 and beyond as we continue to develop our promising pipeline.”

PRECISION1 was designed to address the common reasons why 1-in-5 new wearers discontinue contact lens wear within the first year: poor vision, poor comfort and handling issues. The lenses help new daily disposable contact lens wearers overcome these issues by providing precise vision, long-lasting comfort and ease of handling. It also introduces a new lens material – verofilcon A with Class 1 ultraviolet-blocking capabilities (the highest level available) – created specifically for PRECISION1 by Alcon Research and Development.
