of patients each year stop wearing their contact
lenses because of poor comfort.
Many patients have spent hours
at their Optometrist office trying to find a contact
lens that was comfortable all day long and gave
them exceptional vision. Some of these patients
were never satisfied. There are many reasons for
contact lens discomfort and failure. Extreme work
hours, allergies, high lipid concentration in
tear film, medications, general health problems
that can dry the eyes, nutritional deficiencies,
lack of proper hydration with fluids, and age
are all some of the reasons and often times it
may be a culmination of all of these factors.
We can certainly practice good nutritional habits,
take a good multivitamin, drink plenty of water,
alter our lifestyle and work conditions. But this
may still not be enough. The road to successful
contact lens wear will certainly require some
of what was just mentioned but most importantly
finding a contact lens that fits in harmony with
is the "science" inside this lens...
a remarkable moisture rich element that
acts as an internal wetting agent at the
surface and throughout the interior of the
lens resulting in exceptional long lasting
comfort for our patients.
