Safigel™ has signed an agreement with Wisconsin Vision Associates (WVA) for expanded distribution of its Safigel 1 day™ daily disposable contact lenses. As a full-service contact lens distributor and buying group, WVA will distribute Safigel 1 day ™ Daily Disposables directly to Eyecare Practitioners. “It’s a pleasure to partner with Chris Fait and the entire WVA team to bring Safigel’s patented Hyaluronate-Gel (HA) Technology to a new group of Eye Care Professionals and their contact lens patients. WVA’s impressive growth over the years is a testament to the quality of both their sales and customer service organizations. We look forward to becoming a part of WVA’s continued success story,” notes Safigel™ CEO, Eric Sharvelle. WVA CEO, Christopher Fait, says, “We are excited about our new partnership with Safigel™. Their innovative 1 Day Daily Disposable is a great lens that will work well for many of the doctors we serve.”

Safigel™ is the world’s ONLY hyaluronate contact lens. Positioned at the cutting edge, these contact lenses have the same natural bio-polymer, sodium hyaluronate, used in many leading dry eye drops. HA has unique, water-attracting properties which cause lubrication of the tear shield on both sides of the lens, increasing patient comfort and wearing times. As a leading Optometrist in New York City says, “Our patients wear their lenses from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm – at work, at the gym, shopping, and at home. They love their Safigel™ lenses because they can put in a lens that fits their schedule without having to put drops in all the time. With Safigel™ contact lenses, our patients say they are a lot more comfortable.”

Safigel™ maintains its Corporate Offices in Chicago. For more information, contact Scott Orphanos, VP of Sales, 877-SAF-IGEL, Ext. 2, , or visit .
