Alcon launches Dailies Total1 contact lenses in UK

Consumer Healthcare News

Alcon has announced the UK launch of new disposable daily contact lenses that are designed to offer greater comfort levels than ever before.

The Dailies Total1 products are the first ever water gradient contact lenses and feature an increase in water content from 33 percent at the core to more than 80 percent at the surface level.

This mimics the water content of the cornea, meaning they can provide a higher level of oxygen transmissibility, lubricity and breathability than other alternative products.

Alcon's research shows that the vast majority of patients using the contact lenses were highly satisfied with them and could barely feel them during the course of a day.

By contrast, Dailies Total1 senior brand manager Andrea Anderson noted that around 44 percent of current contact lens wearers experience some discomfort, which means the new Alcon offering could offer a promising potential solution.

The company is also responsible for selling the AirOptix and FreshLook contact lens brands in the UK.
