We previously blogged about Precision UV being discontinued, as the lens officially is no longer produced by the manufacturer Ciba Vision. For Precision UV users that had base curve 8.7, our optician Benjamin recommends Aura monthly UV as replacements because:
- Aura Monthly UV includes UV filter.
- Comfort and thickness will be similar as both lenses are hydrogel lenses.
- The slightly lower water content in Aura monthly UV means less deposits and in most cases, the same end of the day comfort level.
- Powers range from -12.00 to +8.00.
You can buy Aura monthly UV online at Vision Direct, where customers also posted reviews of their personal experiences.
If you require a higher or lower prescription than Aura Monthly UV offers, you can get Proclear samples fitted with your optician to ensure suitability. If you used Precision UV with base curve 8.4 or 9.1, you can check if we still have your prescription available in which case you will be able to buy them online. If not available, please ask your optician for suitable samples fitted, based on your individual needs.
