Paragon HDS®

Paragon HDS® and Paragon HDS®100 are FDA approved for up to 7 days of extended wear and provide visual performance, stability, wettability, comfort and ISO/ANSI Dk values of 40 and 101 respectively, .

Just because a material has a high Dk does not mean clinical safety for extended wear has or can be established. That is why the FDA requires demonstrated product performance through extensive clinical study to obtain extended wear approval. Paragon HDS (paflufocon B, ISO DK 40 and Paragon HDS®100 (paflufocon D, ISO DK 101) are approved by the FDA for up to seven (7) days of extended wear.

When prescribing lenses for applications involving extended or flexible wear, choose a material that is stable, wettable, comfortable, cleared for the indication and proven to have the oxygen permeability your patients need.
