Freshlook contacts by Ciba Vision has been an industry standard for the past ten years. Its staying power is the result being a quality lens, available as a cosmetically pleasing lens and different modalities for correcting refractive errors. These lenses are designed to bring an optimum amount of oxygen and moisture to the corneal surface to prevent complications associated with prolonged contact lens wear as well.
The Colorblends line of the Freshlook brand is designed to change eye color without appearing unnatural. This process takes advantage of the underlying pigment found in the patient’s own iris. The iris is comprised of pigmented fibrovascular tissue responsible for giving it a non-uniform appearance. Taking into account this anatomical fact, Freshlook Colorblends, are not completely opaque. They are designed to allow some of the underlying iris to show through in conjunction with a coloring process that affords the lens unique coloration and depth; much in the same way an artist creates depth in a painting by bringing certain elements to the forefront.
Freshlook toric lenses are designed to correct the most common refractive error: astigmatism. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is spherical and shaped more like a football (an elliptical shape). This causes light to deviate into two rays as it travels the visual axis. To correct this problem, power is prescribed in two planes of the lens located at a 90° angle.
