Precision 1 Contact Lenses




Precision 1 contact lenses are new daily disposable lenses from Alcon with new silicone hydrogel material that is called verofilcon A. These contact lenses have Class 1 ultraviolet-blocking features and Smartsurface Technology. These lenses deliver better visual performance with long-lasting comfort and ease of handling.

In March 2019, Alcon launched these contact lenses in Australia and New Zealand. It was launched in September 2019 in United State and to be launched around the globe throughout 2020 and 2021.



What is Smartsurface Technology


Verofilcon A which form the core of precision 1 contact lenses is a highly breathable silicone hydrogel material with 51 percent water content. The core provides high oxygen permeability. Verofilcon A is slightly harder than the surface which makes it easy handling.

The Smartsurface Technology is the outer permanent ultrasoft layer of moisture at the lens surface with >80 percent water content and consists of bound hydrogel polymers that completely surround the core of the lens. It provides a smooth lubricant surface to stabilize the tear film and provides the ultimate comfort.

Precision 1 contact lenses have Class 1 UVA and UVB protection which is the highest level of protection from UV lights that we can find in contact lenses and this feature is not available with any of the other Alcon daily disposable lenses such as Dailies AquaComfort Plus and Dailies Total 1 Contact Lenses.
