With new around-the-clock axes1, clariti® 1 day toric now offers more parameter options than any other silicone hydrogel 1-day toric contact lens


SYDNEY, NSW., July 16, 2020 Giving optometrists the opportunity to fit an even broader range of astigmatic patients in a silicone hydrogel 1-day contact lens, CooperVision, Inc. has announced expanded parameters for clariti® 1 day toric. The lenses will be available in aroundthe-clock axes1 boosting clariti® 1 day toric’s parameter options by nearly 50 percent.

“CooperVision is known worldwide for toric contact lens innovation and performance. This latest range extension illustrates our commitment to providing a wide range of stable, comfortable silicone hydrogel 1-day toric options, allowing as many astigmatic patients as possible to be fitted,” said Gary Orsborn, OD, Vice President of Global Professional and Clinical Affairs, CooperVision. “From sphere to toric to multifocal, and in every modality, CooperVision continues to offer the broadest range of soft contact lenses in the industry to enable today’s optometrists to meet the unique vision correction needs of virtually any patient.”


CooperVision clariti® 1 day toric features a high-precision design that delivers exceptional optical performance and consistent correction of astigmatism. The lenses also provide excellent rotational stability, with nearly 100 percent of lenses stabilising within 10° or less from the optimum position in three minutes from dispensing. WetLoc™ technology helps to ensure the entire clariti® 1 day lens surface is continuously moist and mimics the moisture dispersion of naturally healthy eyes. clariti® 1 day toric silicone hydrogel contact lenses deliver up to 3x the oxygen transmissibility of 1-day hydrogel contact lenses,2 so patients receive 100 percent of the oxygen their corneas need.


With the addition of around-the-clock axes (indicated in blue), optometrists can fit clariti® 1 day toric with the following parameters:
