The development and manufacture of contact and intraocular lenses relies on innovative, high-quality polymers and reagents. New materials can help enhance oxygen and water permeability, providing increased comfort and safety to contact lens wearers.

Monomer selection impacts a number of lens attributes such as modulus, permeability, surface smoothness, UV radiation absorption and resistance to tearing and surface defects.

We offer a continuously expanding selection of high-purity monomers and polymers for ophthalmic applications, along with a full range of initiators, crosslinkers, dyes, and solvents.

Our broad selection, high quality and outstanding service enable contact lens manufacturers to quickly and successfully develop revolutionary new products.
