Expert hails "breakthrough" contact lens

Expert hails "breakthrough" contact lens

By Martin Burns

A new type of contact lens has been hailed by experts in the US after being rolled out in the country.

The 1 Day Acuvue TruEye, the first silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens in the US, offers wearers "exceptional comfort" which is similar to not wearing a lens at all, according to Colleen Riley, vice president of professional development and medical affairs at Vistakon.

"Data suggests that it can help maintain ocular health with the near "no lens" experience, and keeps the lens-wearing eye looking white and healthy, while also providing consistent comfort throughout the day, health experts say," she explained.

Ms Riley pointed out that the 1 Day Acuvue TruEye was designed, developed and clinically researched versus the "ultimate benchmark" - the natural eye.

Recently, Gerald Boehme from the Professional Association of German Opticians told monstersandcritics.com that contact lenses can be very effective, as people who have defective vision can enjoy perfect sight again.
