tangible HYDRA-PEG
Valley Contax is happy to announce that beginning in September 2017 we will be offering the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating as an option to all of our lenses manufactured in Contamac Optimum materials. This new technology is applied to the lens at the final stage of manufacturing and helps solve the issues of lens comfort and dry eyes by:
Improving wettability
Increasing lens surface water retention
Increasing lubricity/smooth feeling of the lens
Minimizing deposits and lens fogging
Tangible Hydra-PEG is a hydrophilic coating that is permanently bonded to the surface of the lens and lasts the life of the lens and has been FDA approved for use on the Contamac materials Extra and Extreme. The coating is ultra-thin at less than 50 nanometers and thus does not alter lens geometry, mass or Dk/t. It also does not inhibit oxygen permeability or light transmission.
Tangible Hydra-PEG Coating | Increased Lubricity | Resistance to protein and lipid deposits | Increased water retention | H2O
The lubricious and highly wettable surface that Tangible Hydra-PEG creates is due to the polyethylene glycol-based polymer’s high water content (90%) that enables it to resist protein and lipid deposits that create friction between eyelid and contact lens. Several clinical studies have been done and the results are impressive. Wearers report much improved comfort and the ability to wear their contacts all day with no decline in comfort.

Adding Tangible Hydra-PEG technology to the Custom Stable, the first scleral lens approved by the FDA for the treatment of dry eye, is a sure fire way to get the most comfort and visual acuity for your patients. Call or write us today for more information on this exciting new option.

We are proud to promote Amigos Eyecare, a student led organization at Pacific University College of Optometry which provides medical eyecare to underprivileged areas around the world. Amigos Eyecare averages seven trips worldwide per year.

With the assistance of the The Oregon Sight and Hearing Foundation(a project of the Lions Club) and many other groups which help to collect ‘old glasses’, students and doctors are able to examine & dispense glasses to those who would otherwise not have access to medical eye care and vision services.
This is an area of the world with great need, many of the nomadic people (the Maasai) have never seen a doctor of any sort in their lives. The amount of pathology & blindness in Tanzania is staggering. Ultraviolet light exposure is the leading cause of cataract formation, it can also contribute to macular degeneration and pterygium formation. These three causes of blindness could be reduced significantly by wearing non-prescription sunglasses.
