During that can respond to contact lenses such characteristics as biocompatibility? First of all, for that lens is not perceived by the eye as a foreign body, causing discomfort or causing any harm to health.All major manufacturers of contact lenses somehow tend to give their development biocompatible properties. One of the most striking example is the family of hydrogel lenses Proclear Cooper Vision, produced by PC-technology.The essence of this technology as follows: in the lens material is added to the synthetic Phosphoril Choline, completely identical to the natural, part of the membranes of human cells and responsible for their biocompatibility.
Contact Lenses Cooper Vision Proclear 1 day.The presence of a family of lenses Proclear Phosphoril Choline supports their humidity at a constant level and provides a high resistance to dehydration.In light of these and other properties of these lenses Office of United States Food Inspection, medicines and cosmetics (FDA) recommends them for use in pediatrics, as well as for the appointment of persons experiencing discomfort and symptoms,associated with dry eyes when wearing contact lenses.

Oxygen transmission rate of contact lenses

One of the most important characteristics of contact lenses, affecting the safety of wearing them is the transmission rate of oxygen to the cornea (Dk / t). Today in the optical market availability of advanced silicone hydrogel lenses, which have a high value of Dk / t and do not cause any discomfort when wearing.In particular, such lenses is an updated version of the first commercially available silicone hydrogel lenses Pure Vision company Bausch + Lomb, which is essentially a new silicone hydrogel lenses with the same title.Pure Vision lenses have high oxygen transmission rate – 110 Barrer / cm. With aspherical design of the front surface of the new lenses Pure Vision practically eliminate spherical aberration, thereby improving the quality of vision. The lens also has become much more comfortable – due to the improved smoothness of the surface and a lower modulus of elasticity, which decreased by 28%. (more…)

Yet the absence of injury – this is not all that includes the issue safe wearing contact lenses.Moreover, the likelihood of injury is not as crucial in assessing the health safety, the likelihood of complications and diseases that could result from this type of vision correction, which may be due to low transmission of oxygen to the cornea,lack of stability to the sediments and the low wettability of the lens surface.In order to assess the following factors associated with safe wearing of contact lenses, imagine this situation: the family is sent in the evening in a car for shopping or at dusk returning home after the weekend, a nice outdoors.And here an important role in whether contact lenses are safe for family members in this situation, play their optical characteristics and design of which depend on the degree of visual acuity, for example, that a family member who has a car, at any time of day and night, in any light.
