Bausch & Lomb’s Biotrue Oneday (nesofilcon A) range of daily disposable contact lenses was inspired by nature to work like the eye, matching the cornea’s water content and mimicking the function of the lipid layer of the tear film to retain moisture.

Made from hypergel material, it can address the needs of practitioners and patients in the areas of comfort, vision and health.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

On completion of this CPD activity, you should be able to:

1. Recognise how bio-inspired concepts help contact lens materials minimise lens dehydration, stabilise tear film, reduce spherical aberration of the eye and provide sufficient oxygen to enhance comfort, vision and health,

2. Understand factors considered when designing toric contact lenses, and

3. Understand how three zone progressive design provides consistent patient visual outcomes and predictable fitting.
