Toric Alcon/ Ciba Vision Lenses
Toric contact lenses manufactured by Alcon / Ciba Vision
Toric contact lenses are often referred to as lenses for astigmatism. Astigmatism is a condition of the eye where the cornea is unusually warped. This shape of the eye influences the vision and people with this type of eye lens experience a blurred view. The lens which corrects this phenomenon has to stay in a stable position to provide a perfect visual experience. This is achieved by either a blink-induced adjustment or a prism in the lower area of the lens, depending on the manufacturer. Additionally, two specifications concerning the shape of the eye have to be defined. Namely these are “cylinder” and “axis”. If you require further information about toric contact lenses or general handling advice for your lenses, please consult our advice pages.
Alcon, result of a fusion of the two enterprises Alcon and Ciba Vision in 2011, offers the broadest assortment of products in the Eye-Care or Eye-Healthcare market worldwide. Due to the restructuring process that comes with the forming of the new division “Alcon Vision Care” of the Novartis Group, the packages can still look differently. Alcon as well as Ciba Vision are known for their innovative development of new products and technologies. Ciba Vision was the first contact lens manufacturer to use the Silicone-Hydrogel technology which now represents the state of the art. Popular lenses from Alcon / Ciba Vision are the Focus Dailies series, the Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Daily Disposables line or the Air Optix monthly lenses family. A well-known care solution series is for example Optifree Puremoist.
