Positively a new concept in Ortho-K Alexa AR

Positively a new concept in Ortho-K

Positive Impact (PI) has launched Alexa AR contact lenses in the UK, offering independents a new concept in Ortho-K from the pharmaceutical company Tiedra.

Alexa AR for Ortho-K The differential aspect of Alexa AR is in the alignment zone that maximises horizontal force, offering exceptional centering and stabilisation, a faster emmetropisation speed and a wider compensation range up to -10.00D.

PI Managing Director, Nick Atkins, said: “My first involvement with Ortho-K was almost 20 years ago and I’ve been keen to expand our contact lens portfolio into this area but been frustrated by the lack of product development enabling us to sell something new and different. Finally, I found what I was looking for in Alexa AR, a lens that has been successfully fitted in Spain since 2011.”

The high resolution Alexa AR design features four curves for compensation up to -5.00D and a five curve design for compensation from -5.00 to -10.00D, in both cases with reverse band.

The rigid gas permeable contact lenses are made from Paragon HDS 100 material, which is FDA-approved for overnight wear.

PI Professional Services Director, Phil Thompson, added: “One of the key aspects that contributes to success using Alexa AR parametrised contact lenses is the optimised fitting process. The unique design means easy empirical fitting with better treatment memory management at the end of the day. Changes are easy to understand and perform when necessary and the result is consistent for all compensations.”
