MyDay daily disposable, the latest daily lens from CooperVision made of silicone hydrogel
With the MyDay daily disposable, their latest daily lens, CooperVision enters the market with a unique silicone hydrogel solution that is applied based on what they call "Smart Silicone Technology", an innovative method for creating an optimal balance between the health of your eyes, daily long-term use, and ease when inserting and removing your lenses.
The major manufacturers in the world, including CooperVision, spend large amounts on research and development looking for the most comfortable and healthiest lens, with the easiest handling and the longest use. As you can understand, it will always remain a provisional compromise and balance between all these factors. With the introduction of the silicone hydrogel material, -the first to do this was Bausch & Lomb, around 1999 with the PureVision lens- it is now more common for it to be used in the making of lenses. The primary reason for this is the so-called "oxygen permeability properties" of this material. Simply put, our eyes must be able to absorb oxygen. If you cover this with a piece of "plastic" then that is not good for them, hence materials that let oxygen through are used.
CooperVision uses their Smart Silicone Technology, where they mix only 4% silicone hydrogel material with a hydrogel material. This combination allows relatively more oxygen and more water content, which is necessary for your wearing comfort. This combination maintains a certain stiffness in the lens which contributes to its ease of handling and insertion.
Do not simply switch to another type or brand of contact lenses. Always do this in consultation with your optician or ophthalmologist, and let your eyes be tested and checked again. Only then do you ensure the highest chance of success for a longer period of time, and a pleasant and comfortable use of your soft contact lenses.
