Acuity Polymers is dedicated to bringing to market the highest quality GP materials for the specialty lens industry. Using novel state-of-the-art process technology, Acuity produces highly consistent products that meet very tight specifications.

The Acuity Polymers portfolio includes a full range of fluoropolymers, from low and mid Dk up to high and hyper Dk GP materials suitable for all types of designs and wearing modalities. Acuity Polymers' rigid gas permeable (GP) materials are produced using state-of-the-art manufacturing systems to ensure high reproducibility and excellent machining. These premium products are derived from chemistries that have undergone many years of successful on-eye performance. Acuity Polymers’ latest product, available outside the US, is the world’s highest gas permeable material, at a Dk of 200. This novel, patent-pending material is highly appreciated by labs and fitters across the world for its ability to solve challenging specialty lens cases, particularly in the areas of irregular cornea and diseased eyes. New materials are in development to bring ever better performance characteristics.

Acuity Polymers has a very well equipped R&D lab and access to additional analytical resources on the campus of Eastman Business Park, where Acuity Polymers is located. Within a short drive are supporting resources at Rochester Institute of Technology, and University of Rochester. Led by Jim Bonafini, the research team is composed of experts with years of experience both inside polymer companies such as Bausch and Lomb, as well as in specialty lens manufacturing.

All materials are first tested in house and then refined in cooperation with several industry partners serving as test manufacturing sites. All product development follows the quality management system requirements of ISO 13485:2016.

acuity 200

Groundbreaking Technology on the Way: Patent Pending Hyper Dk GP Material, currently available internationally, will come to the US market following FDA clearance. What makes this product unique is the substantial Dk increase over existing products. Increases in Dk are critical for today’s large diameter lenses and overnight orthokeratology. Check back periodically or leave your contact information so that we can alert you upon FDA clearance.

 

Our first FDA cleared material, Acuity 100 is featured as the workhorse material for today’s most advanced corneal and scleral gas permeable contact lenses. The material’s excellent machining and optical properties make is ideal for the wide breadth of specialty designs offered by custom contact lens laboratories.  The high Dk offers fitters and patients the confidence of exceptional oxygen delivery for the protection of ocular health.

Available in standard and large diameter options, and in a number of handling tints.
