Be Your Patients’ Hero

“This is going to mean more time fitting new patients, less time doing refits on your current patients, and less time on your staff with contact lens returns.”

– Dr. Casey Hogan, Advanced Eye Care Professionals, IL

Comfort isn’t just a problem for “problem” patients.

Hydrophobic lens material, a patient’s own tear film composition and anatomy can make fitting challenging. Even patients that profess comfort may still require frequent cleanings for fogging, use rewetting drops, or remove lenses early. (can work in the 20% wherever makes sense, no citation needed)

What if you could improve comfort for all of your patients, all day long, while eliminating the inconvenience? Say hello to Tangible Hydra-PEG.

20
of contact lens patients drop out each year, and dryness is the most common culprit.

The Science Behind Tangible Hydra-PEG

Healthy tear film without contact lens

Uncoated lens disrupts the tear film

Tangible Hydra-PEG coated lens stabilizes the tear film

The 90% water coating is designed to fill the microscopic pits inherent in contact lens material and build up into a lubricious, wettable layer that encapsulates the lenses.

It is permanently bonded to the surface of the lenses and effectively shields the tear film from the hydrophobic lens material so that the only thing exposed to the eye’s surface is a surface that closely matches the eye’s natural environment.

How to Order Tangible Hydra-PEG

Most custom contact lenses are now available with Tangible Hydra-PEG coating and most labs that make custom contact lenses offer it.

It does not affect lens DK, design or fitting requirements.

Next time you order a lens from your lab, just ask them to add Tangible Hydra-PEG coating…that’s it!

About Durability

While Tangible Hydra-PEG is permanently bonded to lenses and designed to last the lifetime of the lenses, various factors may impact the durability of its benefits.

These can include:

  • A patient’s tear composition (i.e., “heavy depositors”)

  • Use of incompatible cleansers or rewetting drops

  • Vigorous rubbing of lenses during cleaning

  • Use of tap water

  • Storing lenses dry, without solution

The coating’s durability is optimized by our family of products and by correct patient care.
