New Water-Gradient Contact Lenses – Alcon’s Dailies Total 1 Available at Bright Eyes!

dailies total1 (640x419)

Bright Eyes is excited about the newest daily contact lens: Dailies Total 1! Manufactured by 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 Bright Eyes, we love new technology and we are proud that among the first optometry practices in the nation to offer this premium contact lens. I am very excited to offer it to people who have issues with dryness and discomfort with their normal contact lenses. I personally have dry eyes and I can only tolerate most contact lenses for 3 to 4 hours. I always like to try products before offering them to patients and with Dailies Total 1 I am able to wear them all day. My staff have have also tried these lenses, and find this lens to be the top-class for comfort.

Here is a short video about how comfortable these lenses are:

Feature of the Month: Focus Dailies Daily Disposable Contacts

Sometimes patients will ask me what type of contacts I wear. The answer is Focus Dailies. There are two reasons for this.

First, they are incredibly healthy. When contact lenses are worn repeatedly, dailiestheir characteristics change. Even when cleaned properly, they are more likely to attract bacteria. My friend, Dr. Justin Bazan, posted about this here. Also, tiny oily and protein deposits will make the re-worn lens less breathable and the vision less clear. This is especially true for people who have allergies or dry eyes. Additionally, some people are sensitive to the contact lens solutions. The best way to deal with this is simply stop using them. For all the above reasons, I call Daily Disposable contact lenses “the great problem solver” for troubled contact lens patients.

The second reason I personally wear Focus Dailies is that they are extremely convenient. I don’t wear lenses everyday, so I don’t really like to keep track of how long it has been since I have opened them. Also, I travel a lot to go to eye care meetings and it is much easier to toss a few extra lenses in my suitcase than to bring solutions and contacts.

There are certain categories of patients who do extremely well in Daily Disposable contact lenses. They frequently are the best choice for children who are getting their first contacts. It simplifies the process and ensures that they have have a clean lens at all times. College students tend to love the convenience. People who do specific activities, such as camping find it extremely useful.

When I first mention that Dailies would be a good choice for patients because they are healthier and more convenient, they sometimes ask me if they are significantly more expensive. I tell them them that these benefits cost less than a dollar a day and once you factor in that fact that you don’t have to

buy solutions and cases, it works out to about 6 cents more per eye:

Focus Dailies Acuvue Oasys
Annual Supply (number of boxes) 8 8
Cost of Solutions $0 $90
Lens Retail Price Per Box $50 $36
Cost of 8 boxes $400 $288
Annual Supply discount $40 $29
Total Lens and Solution Cost $400 $320
Rebate $70 $60
After Rebate Cost $330 $289
Cost per eye per day 45 cents 39 cents

Focus Dalies ToricBecause Daily Disposable lenses have become so popular among doctors and patients, they now are made for almost every type of visual need: patients who are nearsighted or farsighted, patients with astigmatism, and even patients who need bifocal contacts. You can read about these options at www.dailies.com.

So to celebrate Focus Dailies being the Feature of the Month, when you order your Focus Dailies, mention that you saw the Feature of the Month on the Internet and you will receive $5 off per box that you order in January. That is an additional 10% savings!

Be Well!
