Southampton, United Kingdom, April 23, 2012 - CooperVision, a leading global contact lens manufacturer, has announced they will be presenting its full range of Biofinity contact lenses at this year’s BCLA Conference and Exhibition.

Platinum Sponsors of the annual event, being held at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham, May 24 – 27, 2012, CooperVision’s Biofinity sphere, toric and multifocal lens family is a culmination of understanding the importance of patient all-day comfort, which is why all Biofinity contact lenses include Aquaform® Comfort Science™*, and are designed to meet the most demanding of needs.

Visitors to the CooperVision stand (39) can learn firsthand about the benefits of the Biofinity family, and discover how the high water content, high oxygen transmissibility, low dehydration and low modulus results in a lens family that offers patients a comfortable, wettable and breathable contact lens-wearing experience.

“Quite simply, whether a new or existing patient requires sphere, toric or multifocal lens, the Biofinity family is designed to meet the most demanding of patient requirements,” remarked Rob Healey, UK Marketing Manager at CooperVision. “We are excited to introduce our full family of Biofinity contact lenses at BCLA, and look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand.”

CooperVision’s Biofinity toric lens incorporates Aquaform Comfort Science and optimised lens geometry for astigmatic patients who demand more from their contact lenses. The optimised ballast design delivers outstanding stability.

The new Biofinity multifocal lens incorporates CooperVision’s Balanced Progressive™ Technology, which delivers exceptional vision at all distances, and maximises the lens-wearing experience. Its streamlined fitting approach also results in an easier fitting process for presbyopes.

*Aquaform Comfort Science creates a naturally hydrophilic lens that locks water within the lens, minimizing dehydration, and stays moist without the need of wetting agents. The high wettability of the lens surface also resists deposits for less build-up and increases comfort. By incorporating longer siloxane chains, there is less silicone incorporated into the lens material. Less silicone creates a more flexible, low modulus lens that is soft and comfortable.
