IMPROVED CAD-CON 1000 FROM PSI
Cad-Con 1000 has been reformulated with higher-grade, less-dense chemicals to give Cad-Con a “powder-like” texture that mixes better with wastewater, according to Practical Systems, Inc. (PSI). The new chemicals completely separate treated wastewater from sediment, leaving a clear effluent and distinct sediment layer in the bottom of a bucket or tank, which remains intact to eliminate the need to absorb residual water with either paper or other absorbents. Leftover sediment forms a wet paste that can be scraped and accumulated in a dedicated container. For more information, contact Practical Systems, Inc. at 800.237.8154, LookToPSI.com.
HOYA iD LIFESTYLE 3 LENSES
This new lens design comes in three variations for patients’ preferences: iD LifeStyle Indoor for near vision focus; iD LifeStyle Urban that offers equal focus on all main vision areas; and iD LifeStyle Outdoor for distance vision. Each design utilizes Hoya’s patented Integrated Dual Side Optics platform that separates vertical and horizontal components of a prescription, and Binocular Harmonization Technology (BHT), which treats right and left prescriptions as individual components to define the binocular lens design and calculate the necessary corridor length and progressive power distribution.
