New insights into the long-term success of etafilcon A daily disposable contact lenses
KEY POINTS FROM THE LATEST PUBLISHED CLINICAL STUDIES:
- Refitting SiHy wearers with 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST MULTIFOCAL (etafilcon A) results in minimal impact to ocular physiology along with high levels of overall comfort and vision satisfaction10
- Recently reported results for adverse events contribute further evidence to support the safety profile of daily disposables in general and etafilcon A in particular15,18,19
- etafilcon A DDs are associated with a lower risk of corneal infection than other DDs evaluated20
