No7 launches Elements at BCLA event

The specialist contact lens company brings hybrid product to the BCLA event

No7 Elements hybrid contact lens

No7 will be launching Elements, a ‘no fit-no fee’ hybrid contact lens at the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) Clinical Conference and Exhibition on 9–11 June at the ACC in Liverpool.

Produced using Contamac material at the No7 UK laboratory, and following five years of development, No7 told OT that it is confident the new design will be “promoted as the lens to overcome previous hybrid issues.” 

The RGP central zone, with a DK of 100, is “seamlessly joined” by a soft silicone DK65 skirt for enhanced comfort, the company said.

No7 will also be presenting the Comfort 15 mini-scleral lens, described by the company as “the specialist contact lens practitioner’s first call,” at the exhibition.

On-stand fitting presentations of the specialist lenses will take place throughout the BCLA weekend.

No7 sales and marketing manager, Danny Pepper, said: “We have a growing international reputation for being the first company to call for specialist contact lenses for irregular corneas, keratoconus and for therapeutic and cosmetic requirements. What better place to demonstrate this knowledge and bespoke service than at the BCLA?”

In addition to contact lenses, No7 will be promoting the Medmont topographer and its attributes in specialist practice at the exhibition, highlighting how filming tear film break-up can engage patients in dry eye care management.
