It's a monthly silicone hydrogel lens.
(Press Release) BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Bausch + Lomb has announced the launch of its ULTRA for Astigmatism contact lenses.
The product is a monthly silicone hydrogel lens that combines MoistureSeal technology, which helps to maintain 95 percent of lens moisture for a full 16 hours, and OpticAlign design, engineered for stability to promote a successful first fit. This latest offering advances the family of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lens products, providing astigmatic patients the same all-day comfort and consistently clear vision that spherical and presbyopic patients experience with this technology today.
“My astigmatic patients often complain of struggling with dryness, blurred vision and glare,” said Dr. Ben Gaddie, an optometrist from Gaddie Eye Centers in Louisville, KY. “As a practice owner, I understand the importance of not only offering my patients a solution to meet their unique needs, but providing the latest in contact lens technology for their vision. With the innovative features of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism, my patients can experience comfortable vision throughout the day, even when using digital devices or driving at night.”
The OpticAlign design was developed after extensively analyzing, testing and optimizing numerous lens geometries to determine which performed best with the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lens material. In fact, eyecare professionals report rotation at dispensing of 5 degrees or less for 94 percent of patients when fitting Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism.
“We are pleased to expand our product portfolio with the launch of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism, now offering a full family of monthly replacement contact lenses for eye care professionals and their patients,” said John Ferris, general manager, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “Bausch + Lomb is dedicated to bringing this innovative technology to an even broader patient population and advancing the eye care industry through products that help provide the best quality of vision for patients and grow eye care professionals’ practices.”
