COOPERVISION’S BIOFINITY ENERGYS
FOR DEVICE USERS

Specifically created for digital device users, CooperVision, Inc. has introduced the Biofinity Energys contact lens with Digital Zone Optics lens design. To alleviate tired and dry eyes that often result from today’s increased interaction with digital devices and electronic screens, CooperVision’s new Biofinity Energys contact lenses combine breakthrough optical properties, an advanced silicone hydrogel material and a smooth, naturally wettable surface for long-lasting comfort. The lenses will be rolled out on a phased basis in the U.S. beginning this month.
The patent-pending CooperVision Biofinity Energys contact lenses are designed for all-day wear, helping patients’ eyes better adapt so they can seamlessly and continuously shift focus between digital devices and offline activities. Accommodative burden is eased as wearers move their gaze from on-screen to off-screen through the use of Digital Zone Optics, which integrates multiple front-surface aspheric curves across the entire optical zone.
In addition, Aquaform Technology attracts and binds water throughout the silicone hydrogel lens material (comfilcon A) to retain moisture and help alleviate dryness even during times of reduced blinking, which is common with digital device use. Long silicone chains optimize oxygen transmissibility, and reduced silicone content results in a low modulus for softness and flexibility, enhancing comfort and fitting versatility.

LKC’S RETEVAL COMPLETE
GOOD FOR PEDIATRICS

RETeval Complete from LKC Technologies is a flash electrophysiology system that requires no dilation. The device provides useful diagnostics for many visual system abnormalities, but it is especially useful in pediatric populations. According to the company, an early adopter from a leading academic eye institute said, “It’s especially helpful in young children with nystagmus and a normal fundus, who may have a disorder like Leber’s congenital amaurosis, congenital stationary night blindness or achromatopsia.” For more information, contact LKC Technologies, Inc. at 800.638.7055 or lkc.com.

BLANCHARD RELEASES SCLERAL FIT FOR ASIANS
The Onefit A contact lens from Blanchard addresses the physiological nuances of the Asian eye, embracing the company’s minimalist approach to fitting scleral lenses for long-term corneal health. As part of the existing Onefit Scleral Lens Platform, Onefit A lenses offer the crisp acuity of a GP lens with the hydrating comfort of a soft lens, but they are specifically designed for the Asian cornea with a normal prolate profile, irregular corneas, post grafts (prolate), Forme Fruste Keratoconus and post-refractive surgical corneas. Design applications include the following: normal prolate corneas, astigmatism, irregular corneas, multifocal and oblate corneas (including oblate multifocal and toric optics). The standard diameter for the Onefit A is smaller at 14.7 mm, compared to 14.9 mm for the Onefit platform. For more information, contact Blanchard at 800.367.4009 or blanchardlabs.com.
