ABB Optical Group, America’s leading independent eye care distributor, announced today that it will be the exclusive distributor of Performance Vision Technologies, Inc.’s (PVTI) Performance-Tinted Single-Use Soft Contact Lenses under the brand name ALTIUS™, meaning “Higher” in Latin.
With its patent-pending technology, PVTI designed the ALTIUS™ Performance-Tinted Contact Lenses to eliminate visual distractions while elevating visual details to optimize performance.
ALTIUS™ incorporates Light Architecture© and 360 Degree Total Immersion Technology© into a single-use soft contact lens modality to decrease visual distractions. This design allows athletes and recreationists to perform with maximum visual comfort, clarity and quickness under wide-ranging environmental conditions.
The lenses are designed for patients who may or may not need vision correction and are available in two outdoor use tints, ALTIUS™ Amber and ALTIUS™ Grey-Green. ALTIUS™ Amber is engineered for dynamic, reactive sports in a wide range of outdoor light conditions. ALTIUS™ Grey-Green is engineered for open-air activities on water and land in varying outdoor light conditions.
Both ABB and PVTI are thrilled about the new partnership and opportunity to provide patients with top-quality eye care.
"This lens is the result of decades of research to develop "game-changing" optical solutions to address a wide range of lighting conditions in sports, recreation, education or work," said Alan W. Reichow, OD, MEd, FAAO, Founder, President & CEO of PVTI. "We are delighted to have ABB Optical group as our exclusive distributor."
"ABB is thrilled to be able to provide our customers this unique opportunity to differentiate their practice and serve their patients," said Aaron See, Senior Vice President of Manufacturer Partnerships for ABB Optical Group. "ALTIUS™ lenses are now available through a select group of eye care practitioners in the United States. We plan to work together to make the lenses available to a larger network of eye doctors in the spring of 2022."
