Increasing Lubricity, Wettability and Comfort With Advanced Treatments for Specialty Lenses
By Amy Hellum

Tangible Hydra-PEG, the lubricious breakthrough polymer coating, is now available on Duette and Duette Progressive hybrid contact lenses. Some key highlights:
  • Tangible Hydra-PEG is a 90% water PEG-based polymer mixture that is covalently (permanently) bonded to the surface of the contact lens.
  • Tangible Hydra-PEG creates a lens surface with optimal wettability, lubricity and tear film stability.
  • Feedback from patients and ODs about Duette with Tangible Hydra-PEG has been overwhelmingly positive; both cite great optics and all-day comfort.
