New Daily Disposable Contact Lens: Clariti 1 Day
There is no denying that the contact lens world is all about daily disposable lenses, and with CooperVision’s recent acquisition of Sauflon, they added a new option to their growing line of single wear lenses. The Clariti 1 Day lens is a silicone hydrogel single use lens that is available in spherical, astigmatism, and multifocal options. This marks the first “”family”” of silicone hydrogel daily use lenses to be available from any company.

What Makes This Lens Different
Silicone hydrogel materials are the most breathable on the market, but they tend to have issues staying hydrated for many people. The Clariti 1 Day lens is formulated to offer that outstanding breathability that keeps eyes healthy, and also provide that all day comfort that contact lens wearers need.

We know silicone hydrogel lenses offer superior oxygen levels to the corneal surface, but the hydrophobic (water repelling) silicone in the lenses can lead to end of day comfort and wetting issues. The solution is Clariti’s “”AquaGen”” technology that alters the silicone polymers into becoming hydrophilic. This allows the tear film to better adhere to the surface of the lens and retain that natural moisture as the day progresses.
A more moisturized lens means a smoother surface for your eyelids as you blink across your contact lens throughout the day. Typically lenses with lower coefficients of friction are considered to be more comfortable due to this blinking issue. Graph from Sauflon
Other comfort perks include a a lower modulus lens material (a softer, more flexible feel to the lens) and higher water content than any other silicone hydrogel daily disposable lens on the market today (Dailies Total 1 and Acuvue TruEye). The lens also boasts Class II UV blocking for added sun protection (98% of UVA and UVB rays blocked).
Take Home: A great lens for the price! If you are experiencing dryness, redness, or comfort issues this lens is worth exploring.
