Alcon / Ciba Vision Lenses
Contact lenses manufactured by Alcon / Ciba Vision
Medical contact lenses can be used as an alternative or supplement to corrective glasses and thus help to correct visual impairments. Especially monthly lenses are used as a substitute to glasses. There are plenty of other models than monthly disposables, though. As for the manufacturer Alcon / Ciba Vision, you can choose for example between Daily Disposables and the mentioned Monthly Lenses. Daily Disposables are contact lenses which have to be changed after each usage and are not suited for multiple wearing. With the daily dispose comes the advantage of not having to store or clean them. They are mostly used by occasional wearers. Monthly lenses have an extended wearing time throughout the day and sometimes can even be worn overnight. Usually they have to be stored and cleaned after every use which makes it necessary to purchase adequate care products. There are also high-end products which can be used continuously up to 30 days if the condition of your eyes allows it. The Air Optix series by Alcon / Ciba Vision are such lenses with an extremely extended wearing time. Another differentiation can be made between sperical contact lenses for common long- and far-sightedness, toric lenses that correct astigmatism and multifocal or varifocal multifocal or varifocal lenses which are made for people with presbyopia.
Alcon / Ciba Vision is a manufacturer whose products cover the combinations of the attributes mentioned above. The manufacturer Alcon is a result of the fusion of former Ciba Vision and Alcon. They are representing the new division “Alcon Vision Care” of the Novartis Group since the year 2011. The varying names on the product packages exist due to the restructuring process. Thanks to the fusion, Alcon now offers the broadest assortment of products in the Eye-Care and Eye-Healthcare market worldwide. Very popular contact lens series are for example the daily disposables of Focus Dailies, Dailies series or the monthly lenses from the Air Optix series. Colored lenses from the Freshlook family and the Air Optix Colors complete the contact lens assortment from Alcon / Ciba Vision. A very well-known care product line made by Alcon is Optifree Puremoist 3x300ml & 90ml. Alcon as well as Ciba Vision are known for their use and development of innovative technologies, such as the Silicone-Hydrogel Technology which was introduced by Ciba Vision and now is the state of the art for contact lenses.
