SAFILENS A STAR PLAYER AT BCLA
The Italian company participated in the leading European contact lens trade show to promote its patented afocal design for presbyopia
and launch its new daily toric lens
Safilens made a big comeback at the BCLA Clinical Conference & Exhibition which took place June 9th to 11th in Liverpool. The Italian company attended the respected international contact lens trade fair to promote its patented afocal design for presbyopia and the exclusive preview launch of the most recent Safilens innovation: the daily toric fusion 1day astigma lens.
fusion 1day astigma expands the family of daily contact lenses that incorporate the advantages of the company’s groundbreaking fusiontechnology™ system – the synergistic interaction between Hyaluronic Acid and TSP (Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide) that normalizes and stabilizes the physiological relationship between the tear film and the ocular surface, providing the wearer with natural, lasting eye comfort.
The new lens for astigmatism features an innovative design, known as Sleekform, developed by Safilens. "This design" - explains Alessandro Filippo, R&D manager at Safilens - "was engineered to ensure precise, rapid and constant stabilization, while at the same time providing the comfort and practicality of daily contact lenses."
Sleekform stabilization is based on the pure prism, ensuring minimal thicknesses and an extremely uniform surface. In addition to limiting the mechanical strain associated with wearing contact lenses, this characteristic significantly reduces the issues related to differences in distribution of oxygen flow, typical of the designs currently available.
fusion 1day astigma is available with more than 800 parameters (3 cylinders and 8 axes).
Safilens’ participation in BCLA – an exhibition known for its extraordinary scientific program that each year attracts prominent experts and international industry representatives – attests to the company’s ongoing and increasingly core-commitment to the Educational activities tied to its game-changing products.
Live fittings were held at the Safilens stand throughout the duration of the show, with applications open to all visitors, who were able to test the performance and benefits of afocal design and participate in an exclusive preview experience of the Sleekform design of fusion 1day astigma. And that’s not all. Also at BCLA, several works developed in conjunction with Italian and foreign universities were presented as posters on the fusion 1day presbyo lenses; and on Sunday June 11th, Giancarlo Montani (Lecturer on Optometry, University of Salento) and Sergio Momini (Head of Professional Services at Safilens) conducted a workshop entitled “Management of computer vision syndrome and digital eye strain with contact lenses”, that also introduced additional assessments and results of the patented afocal design.
