Precision1 for Astigmatism 30 Pack lenses are specifically designed to correct astigmatism, a refractive error caused by an irregularly shaped cornea or lens. They utilize a toric design to ensure even light refraction, providing clear vision. Additionally, these lenses incorporate Alcon's SMART SURFACE Technology for enhanced comfort, featuring a moisture layer and ingredients that stabilize the tear film.
Understanding Astigmatism and the Need for Specialized Lenses
Astigmatism affects a significant portion of the population. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, about 1 in 3 Americans suffer from this condition. It occurs due to an irregular curvature of the cornea or lens, leading to blurred or distorted vision.
The Challenge in Correcting Astigmatism
Standard contact lenses cannot effectively correct astigmatism due to the irregular shape of the cornea or lens. This necessitates the use of specialized toric lenses that are designed to counteract the uneven curvature and provide clear vision.
Precision1 for Astigmatism: Toric Design for Clear Vision
Toric Lenses: Tailored for Astigmatism
Toric lenses are shaped in a particular way to fit the eye's irregular shape in astigmatism. Unlike spherical lenses, toric lenses have different powers in different meridians, which helps in precisely correcting the uneven refraction.
Precision1's Unique Design
Precision1 lenses are engineered with a specific toric design that aligns with the eye's shape, ensuring that light is refracted evenly. This results in significantly improved vision clarity for individuals with astigmatism.
Advanced Comfort with SMART SURFACE Technology
One of the standout features of Precision1 for Astigmatism is the incorporation of Alcon's SMART SURFACE Technology. This technology involves creating a microthin moisture layer on the lens surface.
Sustained Comfort and Eye Health
The moisture layer not only enhances comfort but also plays a crucial role in maintaining eye health. It prevents dryness and irritation, common issues with contact lens wear, and ensures comfort throughout the day.
Stabilizing the Tear Film for Optimal Vision
A stable tear film is essential for clear vision and eye health. It protects the eye surface and provides a smooth optical surface for light refraction.
Precision1's Contribution to Tear Film Stability
Precision1 lenses release an ingredient found naturally in tears, aiding in stabilizing the lipid layer of the tear film. This stabilization is vital for maintaining clarity and preventing vision disturbances.
The Convenience of Daily Disposability
Daily Disposables: A Hygienic Choice
The daily disposable nature of Precision1 lenses offers a significant advantage in terms of hygiene. Each lens is used only once, eliminating the need for cleaning and storage.
Reducing the Risk of Eye Infections
By using a fresh lens each day, the risk of eye infections and irritations is greatly minimized. This aspect is particularly beneficial for lens wearers who are prone to allergies or infections.
