Tangible Science Announces Successful 2019 and Timing for Tangible Boost Launch

Jan 22, 2020

January 22, 2020 08:00 AM Eastern Standard Time REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Tangible® Science , an innovator creating a dramatically better contact lens experience for patients and eye care practices, today recapped its 2019 accomplishments and announced the expected launch timing for its new conditioning solution, Tangible® Boost. In 2019, the company developed agreements and collaborated with SynergEyes®, Contamac®, Bausch + Lomb, Paragon Vision Sciences and Acuity Polymers to coat their gas permeable (GP) contact lens materials with Tangible® Hydra-PEG® . Adding these new materials to the list of existing materials that can be coated signifies that virtually every GP contact lens material from almost every GP lens laboratory can now be ordered with the surface coating that can enhance wettability, lubricity, comfort, fogging and deposit resistance for GP contact lenses. Last spring, the company launched its second product, Tangible® Clean , the ideal multi-purpose cleaning solution for lenses coated with Tangible Hydra-PEG. The solution protects coated lenses from wear and simplifies care for coated gas permeable (GP) lenses. Tangible Clean is easily rinsed off lenses, reducing the potential for problems associated with solutions that cling to lenses. Tangible Clean is now available for wholesale purchase by eye care practitioners to offer to patients through their practices, in addition to being available for purchase directly by patients at www.tangible.com . The solution is also now available in convenient travel-sized bottles. “Coated lenses can dramatically improve the wettability and comfort of GP lenses, and I have found Tangible Clean useful for my patients in helping to protect their lenses during cleaning so the coating’s benefits can last as long as possible,” said Tiffany Chen, OD, FAAO, Rosemore Eye Care, The Colony, Texas. Last fall, the company announced the first daily disposable silicone hydrogel contact lens featuring a modified formula of its patented Tangible Hydra-PEG polymer technology, the Unity® BioSync™ Contact Lens featuring HydraMist™ technology. The lens was co-developed by the company and VSP Optics. HydraMist was designed to attach to the surface of Unity BioSync Contact Lenses for a full day of wear and improves lens hydration providing a durably comfortable experience for contact lens patients. Eye care practitioners have been anticipating the availability of the company’s newest product, Tangible® Boost , an at-home conditioning treatment designed to repair wear on Tangible Hydra-PEG coated lenses. The company today announced that Tangible Boost is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2020 through eye care practitioners as a prescription-only product. Tangible Boost is designed to maintain the coating’s wettability and benefits for the prescribed life of the lenses when used regularly. During a half-hour soak of coated lenses in the Tangible Boost solution, the polymers in the formula build upon polymers on the coated lens at a microscopic level, filling in gaps from wear and restoring the thickness of coating. Restoring the coating’s thickness restores the full benefits of the coating delivered upon original dispensing. “We are proud of our accomplishments in building relationships with many of the top eye care companies, and excited to see our polymer technology becoming a standard of care to provide contact lens wearing patients with a more comfortable experience,” said Tangible Science CEO Vic McCray. “We look forward to making Tangible Boost available to patients and practices soon, to ensure that patients can enjoy undiminished lens comfort over the life of their coated GP lenses.” ABOUT TANGIBLE SCIENCE Tangible Science strives to dramatically improve the contact lens experience. By developing a family of groundbreaking products for custom contact lenses, as well as a line of hydrogel and silicone hydrogel disposable lenses, the company intends to make the lens wearing experience better for patients and the lens fitting experience easier for eye care providers.
