CooperVision Introduces MyDay® Toric Daily Disposables in Canada
CooperVision, Inc. announced today the introduction of MyDay® toric daily disposable contact lenses in Canada. MyDay® toric offers an extensive power range in a 1 day toric silicone hydrogel lens.
MyDay® toric features the same Optimized Toric Lens Geometry™ found in Biofinity® toric. It provides a uniform horizontal ISO thickness, an optimized ballast band design, large toric optic zone, and a smooth, continuous surface to make it an easy-to-fit, stable toric lens.
The MyDay® family of lenses is naturally wettable, without coatings or surface treatments. It also offers built-in UV protection that filters 85% of UVA and 96% of UVB rays** to help promote long-term ocular health.
By using less silicon, MyDay® has more room in the lens for hydrophilic (water loving) material, resulting in improved surface wettability, higher water content, and lower modulus for a softer, more comfortable lens-wearing experience. It also enables a modulus of only 0.4 MPa to make MyDay® CooperVision’s softest ever 1 day silicone hydrogel contact lens.
Guy Whittaker, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at CooperVision, says, “MyDay® toric is an advanced lens that practitioners 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 further expands CooperVision’s 1 day portfolio, with practitioners able to select from the MyDay®, clariti® 1 day and Proclear® families of 1 day lenses to provide exceptional options for just about every eye.
The complete range of MyDay® toric lenses is currently available in sphere powers from Plano to -6.00 (0.25D steps), -6.00 to -10.00 and Plano to +6.00 (0.50D steps) (plus powers available in 2018); cylinder options of -0.75, -1.25, and -1.75 in axes of 10°, 20°, 70°, 80°, 90°, 100°, 110°, 160°, 170°, and 180°; and -2.25 cylinder in axes of 10°, 20°, 90°, 160°, 170°, and 180°. MyDay® toric lenses have a base curve of 8.6 mm and a diameter of 14.5 mm.
