Alcon to launch Precision1 disposable contact lenses

October 8, 2019 0 By FM

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
Acuvue Moist.

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.
