What is Tangible Boost?

Tangible Boost is a prescription conditioning solution designed to restore the Tangible Hydra-PEG layer on the surface of the lens and maintain its wettability. Normal wear and tear can happen over time, thinning the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating and decreasing benefits to wettability and deposit resistance. Although the lens still performs better than an uncoated lens, patients may not experience the same "wow" factor of Tangible Hydra-PEG after the coating starts to thin.

Used once per month, Tangible Boost restores the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating, combating normal wear and tear. This ensures that patients experience the benefits of Tangible Hydra-PEG for the prescribed lifetime of their lens.
