TruForm Optics Debuts Tangible Hydra-Peg Coating for B+L Boston GP Lenses


Product: Truform Optics’ Tangible Hydra-Peg contact lens coating
Top Line: TruForm Optics, a leader in specialty contact lens design and manufacturing, has launched Tangible Hydra-PEG® custom contact lens coating technology with Boston XO, Boston XO2, Boston EO and Boston ES gas permeable lens materials.
Close Up: This coating technology provides ECPs an opportunity to enhance contact lens customization for their patients using these Bausch + Lomb material offerings and further provide enhanced wettability.
“We are pleased to offer the unique Tangible Hydra-PEG coating technology on approved Boston GP materials, which augments our extensive specialty lens product portfolio,” TruForm Optics president Jan Svochak said. “The combination of this coating technology with approved Boston GP materials can help eyecare professionals provide improved lens wettability for their patients with challenging vision needs.”
Vital Stats: The Tangible Hydra-PEG is a high-water polymer coating that is bonded to the surface of a contact lens, designed to address contact lens discomfort and dryness. TruForm Optics’ decision to offer the coating on approved Boston GP materials further demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing eyecare professionals and patients with the best technology, products and experience available. Tangible Hydra-PEG is the only commercially available surface coating for GP lenses.
Tangible Science chief executive Vic McCray said the firm increasingly hears from ECPs who are asking their specialty lens labs to default to Tangible Hydra-PEG coating for all approved GP lenses. “We are gratified that the coating is being used as a preventative measure to enhance the surface of specialty lenses and head off issues associated with poor surface wettability before they begin,” he added.
