CooperVision Biofinity XR toric CL Now Available in Canada
June 10, 2016 – Coopervision announced the expanded availability of Biofinity® XR toric, the latest addition to the company’s leading Biofinity® range of monthly silicone hydrogel contact lenses. Now, Biofinity® XR toric is available to all eye care practitioners—and their patients—throughout Canada.
Biofinity® XR toric lenses are available in sphere powers from +10.00D to -10.00D (0.50D steps after +/-6.00D), with cylinder powers from -2.75 to -5.75 (0.50 steps) and an axis of 5 degrees to 180 degrees in 5-degree steps, and +8.50D to +10.00D with cylinder powers from -0.75 to -2.25 (0.50 steps) and axis of 5 degrees to 180 degrees in 5-degree steps.
CooperVision first introduced its Biofinity® XR sphere lenses in late 2013, offering patients with severe near- and far-sightedness a combination of high oxygen permeability and all-day comfort. With Biofinity® XR toric, these in-demand benefits are extended to people who have both high prescriptions and astigmatism—typically patients who have had challenges with contact lenses in the past, or may even have thought that contact lens wear was not an option.
Biofinity® XR toric is a fully cast molded made to order lens that incorporates the same uniform horizontal ISO thickness and optimized ballast band design as Biofinity® toric, making it an easy-to-fit, stable toric lens with excellent visual acuity. Its optimized, continuous surface ensures that the eyelid interacts with a smooth lens surface on every blink, resulting in a more comfortable wearing experience.
