19 Jun Review: Alcon DAILIES TOTAL1® First Water Gradient Contact Lenses Provide More Breathability, Best For Longer-Lasting Wear
It’s been a while since anything “new” has happened in the world of contact lenses. You might even be wearing the same contact lenses since middle school (that’s of course if you’re anything like me). So you’ve become accustomed to occasional dry eye, and after about 12-hours or so it’s time to “take out your eyes” — and call it a day so to speak.
Change Up Your Eye Color With Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS Contact Lenses! Nina Dobrev Dons Green Eyes With New Ombre Hair Style
If your current contact lenses feel dry and uncomfortable, then maybe it’s time to check out a new pair that promise to provide more breathability and comfort throughout the day and way into the night.
DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses from Alcon are the first and only water gradient contact lenses, featuring an increase from 33% to more than 80% water content from core to the surface. This innovative contact lens also has the highest surface lubricity and breathability of any contact lens delivering exceptional comfort and no dry eye.
Did you know that we blink up to 14,000 times a day! Now imagine you have contacts in your eyes. Yeah. We’re talking little, sharp daggers poking your eye with every blink by the end of the day. Just think of your eyelid closing and opening over the front of the cornea — and the contact lens — approximately once every 6 seconds. The lubricious lens surface helps reduce friction between the lens and the eyelid, resulting in greater comfort for the wearer.
These new water gradient contact lenses from Alcon are incredible hydrating. Since they are made up of an 80% water content, they do require you to apply and remove them with dry hands, which is very important. Even the slightest moisture on your fingertips will result in a hard time taking them out. Dry, clean fingers are a must. And the best part is that you can dispose of them on a daily basis. No more annoying solution for you.
Still on the fence as to whether or not you should give these new contact lenses a try? According to a recent survey, patients preferred DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses over their habitual contact brand by a ratio of 13 to 1.10^. Survey results also showed that:
9 out of 10 patients said DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses were so comfortable they didn’t feel anything at all.
85% of patients said DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses felt comfortable at the end of the day.
93% of patients said that their vision felt clear at the end of the day after wearing DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses.
DAILIES TOTAL1® water gradient contact lenses are available in the United States for eye care professionals with a DAILIES TOTAL1® fitting set. Find out more at www.dailies.com.
