Alcon has announced plans to launch the newest addition to its contact lens portfolio – PRECISION1® daily disposable, silicone hydrogel (SiHy) contact lenses – in the U.S.

The company said it is the first-and-only contact lens with Alcon’s proprietary SMARTSURFACE® technology – a permanent, micro-thin, high-performance layer of moisture at the lens surface that helps support a stable tear film to deliver lasting visual performance from morning to night.

The product is designed to provide lasting visual performance for patients who wear their contact lenses from early morning to late at night, David Endicott, Chief Executive Officer, Alcon, said in the announcement.

The company said its commercial sales teams will immediately begin working with select eye care professionals to prepare for initial patient availability beginning in September. The lens will become widely available across the U.S. in early 2020.

The product was launched in March in Australia and New Zealand.
