REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — September 26, 2019 — Tangible® Science, an innovator creating a dramatically better contact lens experience for patients and eye care practices, announced today the launch of Unity® BioSync™ Contact Lenses. The product is the first daily disposable silicone hydrogel contact lens featuring a modified formula of the patented Tangible® Hydra-PEG® polymer technology, which is bonded to the surface of the lens. Co-developed by Tangible® Science and VSP Optics, leaders in ophthalmic technology, Unity® BioSync™ Contact Lenses feature HydraMist™ technology and were unveiled last week at Vision Expo West.
The HydraMist™ technology featuring Tangible’s proprietary polymer was developed specifically for silicone hydrogel contact lenses. It is designed to attach to the surface of Unity® BioSync™ Contact Lenses for a full day of wear and improves lens hydration providing a durably comfortable experience for contact lens patients.
“We are enthusiastic about working with VSP Optics to bring this premium contact lens to market,” said Vic McCray, president and CEO of Tangible® Science. “By co-developing this product together, we will enable daily disposable silicone hydrogel lens wearers to benefit from the same polymer technology platform that has improved the lives of countless custom lens patients around the globe.”
“The Unity brand has a long-standing dedication to providing eye care professionals with ophthalmic solutions rooted in innovation that are easy to fit, provide exceptional visual acuity and are comfortable for patients to wear,” said Dave Delle Donne, Senior Vice President of Commercial Markets for VSP Optics. “We’re excited to collaborate with Tangible® Science to expand our Unity portfolio to include a premium contact lenses offering addressing the needs of patient lifestyles and visual correction.”
The launch of Unity® BioSync™ with HydraMist™ adds to the breadth of available products utilizing Tangible Science’s proprietary polymer technology. This includes the SimplifEyes 1Day hydrogel lens, which launched in 2018 in partnership with SynergEyes®; the Tangible® Hydra-PEG® coating, available on most gas permeable and hybrid custom lens materials; and Tangible® Clean, a multi-purpose cleaning solution for gas permeable lenses.
