The new line of contact lenses from global manufacturer CooperVision has been relaunched, with the company promising to enhance the daily lives of users.
According to CooperVision, its Avaira Toric silicone hydrogel lenses, which are used to help astigmatic patients, proved so popular in their earlier run in June last year that only patients with a set fitting were allowed to use them.
Now, however, stocks have been boosted and the company claims the products will provide "consistent performance", regardless of a patient's prescription.
"Avaira Toric offers exceptional stability, vision and comfort from a unique lens design that combines a consistent horizontal thickness, an optimised ballast, naturally wettable material, a low modulus and high water content," the company stated.
Last year, Cooper, the parent company of CooperVision, announced a 60 per cent rise in its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings driven by strong sales of contact lenses and other products.
