Do you experience frequent dryness or discomfort while wearing your contact lenses? Are you looking for a premium lens option that was uniquely designed for maximum comfort? If so, I highly recommend you try Alcon’s DAILIES TOTAL1® contact lens!
Water gradient = increased comfort
To start, DAILIES TOTAL1® was first released to the US market in 2013. It’s unique because it’s the first-ever water gradient contact lens available!
At its silicone hydrogel core, this lens is made up of 33% water content. This water repelling (i.e. hydrophobic) design allows it to provide the front of your eye with superior breathability (i.e. oxygen transmissibility). In fact, DAILIES TOTAL1® has the highest oxygen transmissibility of any daily disposable lens on the market!
On the other hand, its surface is designed to be water-loving (i.e. hydrophilic) and is made up of 80% water content – matching the corneal surface it sits on. In fact, this lens approaches 100% water content at the very front and back of the lens! Overall, this design provides your eye with a very comfortable and smooth gliding surface that lasts all day.
It’s important to note the high lubricity (i.e. slipperiness) of this lens can make it difficult to handle. Therefore, I highly recommend you have dry hands when putting in and taking out this lens.
In a nutshell, what does all this jargon mean to you? White, healthy-looking and feeling eyes, all day long!
