The Marketing manager of Hassan's Optician, Aziz Al Asmar delivered a statement saying, " I would like to welcome you and express my great pleasure to have this amazing new lens in Kuwait, which is a new revolution in the world of contact lenses . Thank you and the B+L team for being here with us tonight and let’s welcome Dr. Behrouzi Homa, Professional Relations Manager at Bausch & Lomb, who will further discuss the features of "Biotrue ONEday", and answer all the questions and inquiries you may have. "
Biotrue™ ONEday, a premium daily disposable contact lens, is made from HyperGel™, an innovative next generation of daily disposable material that has the best features of conventional Hydrogels and Silicone Hydrogels. The lens offers high water content and delivers more oxygen than a traditional Hydrogel, all without the need for adding Silicone, while maintaining the comfort of conventional Hydrogels. It provides consistent, clear, comfortable vision throughout the day because of the innovative, Bio-inspired material which helps retain moisture and optical shape even after hours of wear. As a Bio-inspired product, these lenses extend the Biotrue brand portfolio, which also includes Biotrue Multipurpose solution.
According to Bausch+Lomb, Biotrue ONEday was created by their team of eye health scientists to be the first daily disposable lens with three Bio-inspired features. The Bio-inspired lens contains 78% water, the same water content of the cornea, and delivers the oxygen level needed by open eye to maintain healthy, white eyes. The outer surface of the lens is designed to mimic the action of the lipid layer of the tear film to prevent dehydration. Biotrue™ ONEday lenses provide the maximum amount of moisture of any daily disposable lens on the market today, even after 16 hours of wear.
Surveys show that patients often complain about blurred vision at the end of the day or they have to blink a few times to clear their vision when they are working on their computers. Blurred vision can be caused by contact lens losing moisture, which changes the shape of it and can distort the clarity of vision. With the help of the HyperGel material , Biotrue ONEday contact lenses mimic our own healthy tears and maintain virtually the same moisture level of the natural eye. This helps Biotrue ONEday lenses retain their shape and maintain clear vision throughout the day.
