Do you experience increasing dryness throughout the day while wearing your contact lenses? Are you looking for a daily lens option that is great for new or established wearers? If so, consider trying Alcon’s DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® contact lens!
Blink-activated moisturizing agents
To start, DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® was first released to the US market in 2008. It was designed to replace Alcon’s FOCUS® DAILIES® by providing crisp, clear vision and superior comfort as soon as you put them in. In addition, this contact lens releases blink-activated moisturizing agents over a 20 hour period of time for continuous comfort throughout your entire day.
This lens is bathed in the saline solution hydroxy-propyl methylcellulose (HPMC). HPMC helps provide immediate comfort when you put it in your eyes and is one of the primary ingredients found in some of the main dry eye drops on the market.
Also, DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® contains the blinked activated moisturizing agents polyethylene glycol (PEG) and Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). Like HPMC, PEG is an ingredient found in dry eye drops.
On the other hand, PVA has water-loving (hydrophilic) properties that improve moisture coverage and enhances your overall comfort wearing this lens. In addition, PVA helps improve vision and comfort by maintaining the stability of your tear film as your day goes on.
Overall, DAILIES® AquaComfort Plus® is a contact lens that is comfortable right when you put it in and releases moisturizing agents as you progress throughout your day!
