PRECISION1

Now available through select eye care professionals in the US and already widely available in Australia and New Zealand, Alcon adds another daily disposable silicone hydrogel contact lens to its contact lens portfolio. It also marks the beginning of a new product line, as we can expect a toric and a multifocal version in the future.

According to the FDA filing, PRECISION1 is made with Verofilcon A, a new silicone hydrogel with a 51% water content. In addition, Alcon is adding Class 1 UVA and UVB protection, a feature we have also seen in some of the Acuvue lenses (such as Acuvue Oasys 1-Day).

PRECISION1 features SMARTSURFACE® Technology, a technology that embeds a higher percentage of water (greater than 80%) on the surface than in the core, making the core highly breathable and the surface extremely moist. Alcon calls this 'aqueous extraction and surface treatment'.
