CooperVision MyDay® Daily Disposable Contact Lenses Move Into Hong Kong Market [ view all news ]
CooperVision MyDay® Daily Disposable Contact Lenses are now being sold in Hong Kong, as of early January, 2015. CooperVision uses its Smart Silicone® chemistry in the production of these daily disposable lenses - in fact, in these lenses only.
CooperVision describes its CooperVision MyDay® Daily Disposable Contact Lenses as being part of a new generation of silicone hydrogel lenses, citing their Smart Silicone® chemistry which has been developed to use less silicone than in the manufacturing of previous CooperVision lenses, leading to benefits for patients.
Specifically, Smart Silicone® chemistry is said to bring four benefits to the contact lens user: an increased flow of oxygen into the eye, resulting in less redness; a water content of more than 50% of the total lens, resulting in increased comfort; a structure that makes the lens easy to put on the eye and a relatively high level of UVA and UVB protection.
The Professional Services Director for CooperVision in the Asia Pacific region, Dr. Chi Shing Fan, has welcomed CooperVision MyDay® Daily Disposable Contact Lenses to the Hong Kong market, citing the fact that customers are keen for a product that reduces the redness of the eye whilst increasing its health.
