Tangible Hydra-PEG

What is Tangible Hydra-PEG?

THP is a coating that is bonded to custom contact lenses designed to solve discomfort and dry eye by:

  • Improving wettability
  • Increasing lens surface water retention
  • Minimizing deposits and lens fogging
  • Increasing lubricity 

THP is a 90% water coating designed to fill the microscopic pits inherent in contact lens materials and build up into a lubricious, wettable layer that encapsulates the lens. The coating shields the tear film from the hydrophobic lens material so that the only thing exposed to the eye is a surface that closely matches the eye's natural environment. THP is ideal for:

  • Dry eye sufferers
  • Patients with comfort issues
  • Patients adapting to corneal lenses
  • Heavy depositors
  • Patients with scleral fogging
  • Patients with compromised tear film
