Similar to the other products in the Biotrue ONEday brand family, Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism starts and ends the day with more moisture than other leading daily disposables. It has a patented dehydration barrier, that allows the lens to maintain nearly 100 percent of its moisture for a full 16 hours.1 In addition, Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism contact lenses offer an evolved peri-ballast design, featuring a tapered edge to limit lid interaction, and spherical aberration control to help reduce halos and glare, particularly in low light conditions.
