CooperVision Launches Avaira Toric Parameters With Plus Sphere Powers

Avaira lenses with Aquaform® Comfort Science – in addition to their naturally wettable properties – also incorporate a high level of oxygen transmissibility (125 Dk/t sphere, 91 Dk/t toric), rounded edges that promote minimal lid interaction, and a smoother lens surface.

All Avaira toric lenses feature optimized lens geometry, uniform horizontal ISO thickness and wide ballast design, plus a larger toric optic zone. An ultraviolet radiation blocker helps protect wearers' eyes, limiting 75 percent of UVA and 99 percent of UVB rays.
