CooperVision expands MyDay® toric parameters with plus sphere powers
Contact lens manufacturer now boasts the widest spherical power range of any daily disposable toric lens.[i]
Southampton, United Kingdom, 22 March 2018 — Today CooperVision has expanded its MyDay® toric parameters with plus sphere powers, enabling eye care professionals to fit an even greater number of patients in CooperVision’s softest ever one-day silicone hydrogel lens. MyDay® toric now boasts a range of +6.00DS to -10.00DS, in ten axes, across three cylinder powers, and six axes in the highest cylinder power.
MyDay® toric is an advanced high performance lens that eye care professionals can use to help further build their practices by giving patients with astigmatism a soft, comfortable lens-wearing experience with the lens stability and visual acuity they have come to expect from CooperVision’s toric lenses. MyDay® toric features the same groundbreaking Optimised Toric Lens Geometry™ found in Biofinity® toric, providing uniform horizontal ISO thickness, an optimised ballast band design, large toric optic zone and a smooth, continuous surface to make it an easy-to-fit, stable toric lens.
Senior Marketing Manager at CooperVision, Lara Drury, commented: "Following a successful launch last year, we are delighted to be able to provide the only daily disposable toric contact lens that goes up to a +6.00DS, allowing more astigmatic patients to benefit from the high performance of MyDay® toric. Offering outstanding comfort, health and vision without compromise, we are committed to providing eye care professionals with the parameters they need to fit even more of their astigmatic patient base."
Smart Silicone™ chemistry is the technology at the heart of the MyDay® family. The breathable material of MyDay® toric allows 100 per cent corneal consumption, and is complemented by a modulus of just 0.4 MPa, and high water content making it CooperVision’s softest ever silicone hydrogel one-day contact lens. The lens also incorporates built-in UV protection that filters 85% of UVA and 96% of UVB rays*.
From today the new parameter range is available in plano to -6.00D (0.25 steps), -6.00 to -10.00D and plano to +6.00D (0.50 steps) with cylinder options of -0.75D, -1.25D, and -1.75D in axes of 10°, 20°, 70°, 80°, 90°, 100°, 110°, 160°, 170°, and 180° and -2.25 in axes of 10°, 20°, 90°, 160°, 170°, and 180°. MyDay® toric lenses have a base curve of 8.6mm and a diameter of 14.5mm.
