Alcon is a well established division of Novartis, dedicated to advancing eye care needs. Since merging with Ciba Vision, they have increased their product portfolio and now offer a wide range of contact lenses as well as contact lens maintenance products. Recently, Alcon released the first water gradient contact lens which features higher water content in the lens. This has been shown to provide superior end-of-day comfort for the wearer.
Alcon has a global network or eye care professionals through which they receive feedback on their products to better and improve their range. They currently offer daily wear one-day disposable contact lenses, monthly disposable contact lenses, disposable coloured contact lenses, and contact lenses to correct astigmatism.
