Proclear is one of CooperVision’s most successful soft contact lenses brands. A large part of Proclear’s popularity has to do with its “biocompatible” design. CooperVision scientists developed a unique “PC Technology” that is supposed to interact favourably with each eye’s natural tears. Due to the lenses’ increased wettability, Proclear is often the “clear” choice for people struggling with dry eye-related disorders.
Anyone interested in learning more about the Proclear family of products should keep reading. In this piece, we’re going to take a closer look into the Proclear brand and explain how you could pick up these lenses on Contactlenses.co.uk.
Headquartered in California, CooperVision has been in the eye care business since the 1950s. Today, Cooper Companies is one of the world’s leading contact lens manufacturers selling to well over 100 countries around the world.
CooperVision’s main selling point with its Proclear line has to do with “PC Technology.” According to the company, this trademarked technology is supposed to mimic the eye’s natural biology. With this PC Technology, Proclear lenses attract and retain a great deal of moisture without sacrificing breathability.
The “PC” in “PC Technology” stands for a unique chemical known as phosphorylcholine. Scientists used phosphorylcholine throughout the lenses’ design because it seems to interact favourably with the eye’s natural tears. Thus, PC Technology helps reduce the risk of protein deposits and overall eye irritation.
CooperVision claims Proclear contacts retain 96 per cent of water even after 12 hours of continuous wear. There’s also evidence that suggests Proclear lenses may help reduce the symptoms of dye eye syndrome and Meibomian gland dysfunction.
Although most Proclear contacts are monthly disposable lenses, there are a few dailies in CooperVision’s portfolio. Be sure to look at your product’s instructions carefully for an official expiration date.
Currently, Contactlenses.co.uk offers five Proclear varieties for online purchase. We also have many other lenses in the CooperVision portfolio that you could access on this link.
Below, we’ll go over the significant differences between each Proclear lens type on Contactlenses.co.uk.
Customers who are looking for CooperVision’s original Proclear brand can easily find it on Contactlenses.co.uk’s Proclear tab. Suitable for both nearsighted and farsighted patients, Proclear contacts have all the biocompatible features listed above, including PC Technology.
On Contactlenses.co.uk, each Proclear box contains six lenses in a saline solution. UK customers who order products before 3 PM will enjoy same-day shipping privileges. By the way, Contactlenses.co.uk also offers free shipping on any UK orders over £30.
Note: you should dispose of these Proclear lenses after one month of usage. You should also refrain from wearing any Proclear lens overnight. For more information, please visit this page on Contactlenses.co.uk.
Patients looking for a more convenient version of the Proclear contact lens might want to look into the One Day label. As the name suggests, Proclear One Day lenses can be used for one day (excluding overnight wear).
Daily disposable contacts have several benefits (e.g. a lower risk of infection and no risk of protein deposits). Many patients also claim dailies are more comfortable than longer-term lenses, although this is a matter of personal preference.
You can now purchase Proclear One Day lenses on Contactlenses.co.uk in 30-count boxes. To better understand these daily disposable lenses, all you have to do is click on this Contactlenses.co.uk link.
Toric contact lenses have a different shape compared with standard spherical soft lenses. The reason companies design lenses this way is to help accommodate the unique challenges posed by astigmatism.
Anyone struggling with astigmatism that likes Proclear will be happy to know this company now offers a Proclear Toric variety. Each of these lenses are approved for monthly wear and are available in 6-count boxes on Contactlenses.co.uk.
Astigmatism patients might enjoy the new Proclear Toric contacts now on Contactlenses.co.uk. Please click on this link to learn more about the benefits you’ll experience wearing these lenses.
Another significant offering in the Proclear portfolio is multifocal contacts. Just like traditional bifocal eyeglasses, multifocal contacts help patients with age-related farsightedness (aka presbyopia) see clearly.
For your convenience, Contactlenses.co.uk now offers both the monthly and daily versions of Proclear Multifocal lenses. Each monthly disposable pack comes with three lenses per box, but the Proclear Multifocal One Day boxes have 30 contacts each.
Please check out this webpage on Contactlenses.co.uk for more information on Proclear Multifocal contacts.
One thing that’s not clear-cut when choosing a Proclear variety is whether to buy monthly or daily lenses. Every patient has to decide which lens variety is the best fit for his or her preferences, prescription, and lifestyle.
Of course, it’s always best to ask what your optometrist recommends when picking out a contact lens brand. There are, however, general considerations you should keep in mind when deciding between these lenses.
Here are a few of the common considerations associated with monthly and daily lenses.
Until the advent of daily and weekly contacts, monthly disposable lenses were the industry standard. Today, monthly lenses are still quite popular with contact lens wearers who are most interested in cutting costs.
Typically, monthly contacts are the least expensive option in the soft lens market. Monthly disposable lenses also tend to have a broader range of prescription strengths compared with daily lenses.
You will, however, have to “pay” for monthly lenses with your time. Since you re-use these contacts for 30 days, you must practice immaculate hygiene.
Customers must also bear in mind that monthly contacts carry the highest risk of infection. Over time, you might even notice protein deposits and scratches appear on these lenses. All of these factors could lead to eye discomfort, especially near the end of the month.
Daily disposable lenses have gained a lot of press recently. Thanks to new manufacturing procedures, more companies than ever before can offer dailies at competitive rates.
But it’s not the prices that attract most people to daily disposable contacts. The top reason patients choose dailies has to do with their safety profile. Since you throw these lenses away every night, it’s difficult to catch an eye infection and impossible for protein deposits to accumulate.
Daily contacts also have a significant convenience factor. People who live hectic lives will appreciate the simplicity of popping open a new pack of dailies every morning and throwing them out at night.
On the negative side, daily contacts tend to be the priciest soft lens on the market. These lenses are also the least eco-friendly option available to consumers. If you’re going to use daily contacts, we strongly recommend placing them in a recycling bin every night.
