Jul. 25, 2019

Art Optical Contact Lens, Inc., has added Tangible Hydra-PEG surface treatment as an available option on their specialty contact lenses made in Boston ES, Boston EO, Boston XO, Boston XO2, Paragon HDS®, Paragon HDS 100, Paragon Thin™, FluoroPerm® 30, FluoroPerm 60, FluoroPerm 92 and FluoroPerm 151 GP lens materials.

Hydra-PEG surface treatment from Tangible Science, LLC, provides a wettable and lubricious lens surface that results in fewer deposits, less irritation and an improved patient wearing experience. Tangible Hydra-PEG has been available from Art Optical on both corneal and scleral lenses made in Optimum Comfort, Optimum Extra, Optimum Extreme, and Hexa 100 materials from Contamac since January 2017 and is widely prescribed for presbyopic patients with compromised tear production, as well as patients with dry eye, ocular surface disease, and those with especially demanding wearing schedules.
