REDWOOD CITY, Calif., December 15, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Tangible® Science, Inc., an innovator creating the most comfortable contact lens experience for patients, today announced that Tangible Boost™ has received FDA clearance and will be commercially available in January 2021. Tangible Boost is a monthly treatment that restores the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating and maintains the wettability of Tangible Hydra-PEG treated fluorosilicone acrylate rigid gas permeable lenses. Designed for patients to use in the comfort of their own home, Tangible Boost rebuilds the coating, combating normal wear and tear and allowing Tangible Hydra-PEG to provide superior comfort for the prescribed lifetime of their lenses.
"Since 2016, our patients have reported increased comfort and improved visual stability while wearing Tangible Hydra-PEG coated lenses. Clinically, I observe improved tear break up times and over time reduction in lid wiper epitheliopathy. The addition of Tangible Boost to my patients' lens care regimen has allowed them to maintain these effects for a longer period of time. The feedback has been very positive."
John D. Gelles, O.D., Director, Specialty Contact Lens Division: Cornea and Laser Eye Institute.
"The Tangible Hydra-PEG coating has provided custom lens patients with much better comfort and Tangible Clean has streamlined the cleaning and disinfecting regimen. We are excited to add Tangible Boost to the Tangible Care System, ensuring that patients can enjoy the best experience possible throughout the life of their lenses."
Tangible Science CEO, Vic McCray, MD.
Tangible Boost is available for eye care practitioners on www.tangiblescience.com or through a number of custom lens manufacturers including ABB Optical, Acculens, Advanced Vision Technologies (AVT), Valley Contax and X-Cel Specialty Contacts.
