Optometry Reference Guide Creates New Category for Alcon’s Permanent Water Surface Lenses
Alcon announced that Tyler’s Quarterly created a distinct category for Permanent Water Surface contact lenses that puts Alcon’s lenses with proprietary water surface technology in a class of their own. This new category debuts in the September 2021 issue of Tyler’s Quarterly alongside the launch of TOTAL30® contact lenses, the monthly replacement Water Gradient lenses. In addition to TOTAL30, daily disposable lenses DAILIES TOTAL1® and PRECISION1® will round out the Permanent Water Surface lenses category.
“Eye care professionals have been relying on Tyler’s Quarterly for over 30 years to stay up to date on the latest in the contact lens market. We are pleased that Alcon’s efforts to push contact lens innovation with water surface technologies have been recognized,” said Sean Clark, General Manager, U.S. Vision Care, Alcon. “With the launch of TOTAL30 lenses, eye care professionals are now able to offer a wider range of lenses with cutting-edge technology.”
With Alcon’s Permanent Water Surface lenses, water surface technologies are permanently anchored to the lenses, featuring water-loving polymers that attract water to provide a cushion of moisture for the wearer.
