Hot news for contact wearers from Alcon U.S.A.

Alcon has announced plans to launch its daily disposable contact lens in the U.S. made from a new material.

The company’s Precision1 lenses are built from a silicone hydrogel comprised of 51% water, dubbed verofilcon A. The lenses also hold a permanent layer of moisture on their surface, designed to support the eye’s tear film, and contain an ultraviolet-light-blocking compound to offer protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

“Precision1 is designed to provide lasting visual performance for patients who wear their contact lenses from early morning to late at night,” Alcon CEO David Endicott said in a statement.
