DAILIES TOTAL1® Water Gradient Silicone Hydrogel (SiHy) contact lenses represent a new era of comfort. They are the first water gradient silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lenses featuring an increase from 33% to over 80% water content from core to surface. This innovative contact lens has the highest surface lubricity and the highest breathability (or oxygen transmissibility) of any leading daily disposable contact lens, delivering exceptional comfort that lasts through to the end of the day.
Research has shown that as many as 44% of all contact lens wearers report experiencing discomfort. Discomfort, at 48%, is the number one reason cited for drop out. Additionally, comfort represents the number one barrier to try contact lenses among new wearers.
What is water gradient technology?
DAILIES TOTAL1® Water Gradient contact lenses are the first water gradient silicone hydrogel contact lenses featuring an increase from 33% to over 80% water content from core to surface. This unique design delivers a lens surface with unsurpassed lubricity.
- At the core, DAILIES TOTAL1® Water Gradient SiHy contact lenses have a water content of 33%, which allows exceptional oxygen transmissibility – the highest of any daily disposable contact lens.
- Between the core and surface, DAILIES TOTAL1® lenses have a transition zone where the water content changes from 33% to over 80%.
- At their surface, the new contact lenses have a water content of over 80% – nearly the same as the surface of the cornea. The highly wettable, lubricious surface helps minimize friction and interaction with the eye’s delicate tissue.
- 93% of wearers were satisfied
- 93% agreed the lenses felt silky smooth
- 88% agreed these lenses provide the feeling of silky soft moisture, and over three-quarters (76%) agreeing this feeling lasted all day
