Four zones of stability minimizes lens shifting and rotation
BLINK STABILIZED™ lens design helps keep your vision crisp, clear, and stable all day long—even for people with an active lifestyle.
This unique lens design helps minimize shifting and contact lens rotation because it’s designed to realign naturally with every blink. Contacts with BLINK STABILIZED™ design also feature four zones of stability, instead of the single ballast zone found in most astigmatic contact lenses. The result is exceptional stability and crisp vision.
