New Daily Disposable Contact Lens

Written By: Dr. Jeff Goodhew

Abbey Eye Care is excited about the newest daily contact lens: Dailies Total 1! Manufactured by Alcon (formerly Ciba Vision), this new lens is the first to supply the perfect balance between hydration and comfort for daily contact lenses.

Sometimes people find a lens that’s comfortable, but they still experience occasional discomfort during the day. Then, they continue to hear about the newest lens that is the most comfortable and “breathable”one out there. The difference with Dailies Total 1 is the increase in the amount of water-permeability throughout the lens. Unlike the other Silicone Hydrogel lenses, Dailies Total 1 lenses still includes great breathe-ability for the lens, but adds more “wettability” for comfort: > 80% water-content.

At Abbey Eye Care, we love new technology and we are proud to be among  the first Optometry practices in Canada to offer this premium contact lens. Drs. Goodhew and Tong are very excited to offer it to our patients who have issues with dryness and discomfort with their normal contact lenses.
