Tangible Science announced the launch of Unity BioSync contact lenses, which the company is describing as the first daily disposable silicone hydrogel contact lens featuring a modified formula of the patented Tangible Hydra-PEG polymer technology that is bonded to the surface of the lens. Co-developed by Tangible Science and VSP Optics, Unity BioSync contact lenses feature HydraMist technology and were unveiled last week at Vision Expo West.

The HydraMist technology featuring Tangible’s proprietary polymer was developed specifically for silicone hydrogel contact lenses. It is designed to attach to the surface of Unity BioSync contact lenses for a full day of wear and improves lens hydration providing a durably comfortable experience for contact lens patients.

“We are enthusiastic about working with VSP Optics to bring this premium contact lens to market,” Vic McCray, president and CEO of Tangible Science, said in a company news release. “By co-developing this product together, we will enable daily disposable silicone hydrogel lens wearers to benefit from the same polymer technology platform that has improved the lives of countless custom lens patients around the globe.”

“The Unity brand has a long-standing dedication to providing eye care professionals with ophthalmic solutions rooted in innovation that are easy to fit, provide exceptional visual acuity and are comfortable for patients to wear,” Dave Delle Donne, Senior Vice President of Commercial Markets for VSP Optics, said in the news release. “We’re excited to collaborate with Tangible Science to expand our Unity portfolio to include a premium contact lenses offering addressing the needs of patient lifestyles and visual correction.”

The launch of Unity BioSync with HydraMist adds to the breadth of available products utilizing Tangible Science’s proprietary polymer technology. This includes the SimplifEyes 1-Day hydrogel lens, which launched in 2018 in partnership with SynergEyes; the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating, available on most gas permeable and hybrid custom lens materials; and Tangible Clean, a multi-purpose cleaning solution for gas permeable lenses.
