"For 75 years, Alcon has remained steadfast in its mission to connect industry-leading vision care innovations for all eye care needs and professionals who are helping patients across the world," said Sean Clark, General Manager, U.S. Vision Care. "We are thrilled to continue this work as industry leaders by presenting an array of exciting events and presentations at Academy, including showcasing the growth of Alcon over the past 75 years and groundbreaking plans for the future."
Clinical Data and Research Findings in Contact Lenses and Ocular Allergies
Several research- and investigator-initiated trials supported by Alcon will be presented at the event highlighting the results of clinical research around the efficacy and performance of Pataday®, PRECISION1® contact lenses, and some including competitive products. One notable study shows that a single dose of Pataday Once Daily Relief Extra Strength was significantly more efficacious than a single dose of Claritin^ Tablets 24-Hour in reducing ocular itching in subjects with allergic conjunctivitis at both 15-minute onset of action and 24-hour duration of action evaluations.
