Alcon to launch Precision1 disposable contact lensesOctober 8, 2019
Alcon is planning to launch Precision1 daily disposable, silicone hydrogel contact lenses in the US. Precision1 contact lens uses Smartsurface technology.
The technology features a permanent, micro-thin, high-performance layer of moisture at the lens surface that helps support a stable tear film to deliver lasting visual performance from morning to night.
A new head-to-head clinical study demonstrated superiority of Precision1 over top-selling 1-Day Acuvue Moist contact lenses in attributes critical for successful contact lens wear: vision, comfort and handling.
Study findings showed contact lens wearers rated Precision1 significantly better than 1-Day Acuvue Moist on end-of-day vision, end-of-day comfort and overall handling. Moreover, five times more wearers in the study “strongly preferred” Precision1 over 1-Day
Precision1 is 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, according to a company statement.
