Matching New Materials and Contact Lens Care Products
I recommend you tell patients: "New contacts lens materials are a lot like other new technologies. While they are superior to older technologies, they are more sensitive if not treated properly. When you go to buy your solutions, you will notice a dozen other brands. Some of them may not may not work as well with the new higher oxygen lenses. It is important you stick with the solution I'm recommending."

Increased Comfort Delivers Lasting Patient Satisfaction Nothing drives referrals like satisfied patients. And nothing satisfies patients like the comfort and minimal corneal staining that can be provided by ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses with HYDRACLEAR™ Plus. In a recent clinical study, new wearers exhibited no significant difference in corneal staining and reported no significant difference in overall comfort between ACUVUE® OASYS™ and no lens. And in an in-market trial, 89% of patients fit with ACUVUE® OASYS™ would recommend their doctors based on their experience. How will you satisfy your patients and build your practice with ACUVUE® OASYS™?
