• Aquaform® Technology
• Less likely to need additional wetting drops
You’ve probably seen the term Aquaform® Technology on our products and wondered exactly what that means. It’s not just one thing but a combination of material technologies resulting in a uniquely comfortable and high-performance lens only available through CooperVision.
The Aquaform lens material itself has many features that work together to create an optimal lens-wearing experience.
For instance, when a lens doesn't breathe properly, the tiny red veins in the white part of the eye become more visible as they reach for more oxygen much like a plant in a shadow reaches its branches towards the sunlight. The material in Aquaform Technology lenses has high oxygen transmissibility for increased breathability to keep your eyes healthy and white.
Another feature is what’s called a low modulus. The modulus is the degree of a contact lens’ flexibility, and the lower the modulus, the more soft and flexible the lens.
The molecular structure of Aquaform Technology lens material provides not only uniform wettability creating a smooth lens surface but also natural wettability.
Other lenses can come with artificial coatings and wetting agents that dissipate over time. The silicone macromers in Aquaform Technology lenses lock water into the lens keeping them moist even after periods of extended wear.
In addition to material, lens shape has much to do with the quality of the lens-wearing experience. Aquaform Technology lenses feature an optimized rounded-edge design that reduces conjunctival interaction. In other words, it keeps the lens from rubbing too much on the inside of the eyelid providing an increased level of comfort.
All avaira lenses feature our exclusive Aquaform® Technology. This combination of material technologies provides a uniquely comfortable, high-performance lens that lets your eyes breathe and stay moist naturally.
What’s PEG? It’s short for Polyethylene Glycol, of course!
More importantly, PEG extends Avaira’s water-loving qualities by tightly binding water throughout the lens. The result is continuous comfort throughout your day and the life of the lens.
Exceptionally Breathable and Water Loving
To help keep your eyes clear and healthy looking, Avaira lenses are also exceptionally breathable, meaning more oxygen is able to pass through the lens to your eye.
Our exclusive Aquaform® Technology in CooperVision Avaira® contacts ensures that your eyes get plenty of oxygen so they stay healthy. And it delivers a lens that’s very soft, flexible, smooth, and comfortable.
The Aquaform lens material is also naturally wettable with no artificial coatings or wetting agents and they lock water into the lens to keep it moist, even after periods of extended wear.
This unique material attracts and binds water within the lens itself, keeping the lenses moist and comfortable without the need for additional lens surface treatments or wetting agents like other silicone hydrogel contacts.
*Warning: UV-absorbing contact lenses are not substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear, such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses, because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. Patients should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed.** Awarded by Optician, a leading UK optometric publication, as voted for by a panel of recognized UK Eye Care Professionals.
