As with other forms of eyewear, contact lenses are continually re-engineered and redeveloped to offer more comfort for wearers, with the most recent innovation coming from Ciba Vision/Alcon. The new Dailies Total lens, a daily disposable, features ground-breaking new comfort levels for the wearer. In technical terms, this is possible through the lens’s increase in water content from 33 per cent to more than 80 per cent from core to surface. This offers the highest breathability of any daily disposable contact lens, delivering exceptional comfort that lasts through to the end of the day.
So, what does this mean in real terms? Wearers are unlikely to feel they are actually wearing the lens – thanks to the increased water content. Dehumidified atmospheres, long days, and extra wearing time pose virtually no challenge to this new contact lens, and testers comment on the amazing level of comfort, unlike any lens they have tried before.
