PeroxiClear solution is a unique formula that contains Triple-Moist Technology™, which helps to provide up to 20 hours of oisture.1PeroxiClear provides the disinfection efficacy user expects from a hydrogen peroxide solution, but neutralizes in only four hours, as compared to six with other peroxides. With the introduction of PeroxiClear solution, Bausch + Lomb now has products in each key segment of the lens care business, including Boston® rigid gas permeable lenses, Biotrue® and renu® multi-purpose solutions, and peroxide-based care. PeroxiClear solution will be available in major retailers starting in April and May 2014, including Target, Rite-Aid, K-Mart, Walmart, Walgreens and CVS.

Bausch + Lomb Unveils Injector System for Acrylic Intraocular Lens

Bausch + Lomb Incorporated unveiled Bausch + Lomb Injector System, or BLIS, designed for use with the enVista glistening-free, hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lens, or IOL. BLIS, complete with a reusable hand piece and single-use cartridge, allows surgeons safe, controlled delivery of the enVista IOL through unenlarged phaco incisions as small as 2.2 mm. The design of the cartridge also enhances the insertion of the IOL in comparison to other technologies on the market. This device lives up to its name and is a welcome addition in my practice." BLIS was developed with the input from surgeons around the world with the ultimate goal of securely and accurately implanting the enVista IOL while minimizing mishandling, loading errors and damage to the lens. The reusable hand piece is made of high-quality, titanium material designed for both reliability and comfort for the surgeon and staff. In addition, the proprietary disposable cartridge is designed for easy lens loading, easy wound entry and smooth delivery of enVista.

Bausch & Lomb Incorporated Introduces MoRoCCo VA Application in United States

Bausch & Lomb Incorporated introduced the MoRoCCo VA application, or app, in the United States. The app is reportedly designed to enable eye care professionals, or ECPs, select the correct KeraSoft IC lens for patients with keratoconus and other cornea irregularities. Based on the successful MoRoCCo VA fitting method, the innovative app guides the ECP through each stage of the lens fitting process. Using interactive screens, the app allows the ECP to directly enter data during each KeraSoft IC lens fitting assessment. The app then provides instantaneous feedback as to whether the fit is optimal or sub-optimal, and offers advice on logical next steps. Fitting data may be stored for both eyes in one session. Other benefits of the app include real time animations of lens behavior, viewing the fitting history for each patient at a glance, emailing lens orders to authorized laboratories, requesting technical support and more. The MoRoCCo VA app is browser based and is available at no cost. The app is designed for use on multiple electronic devices, including a PC, smart phone, tablet or other mobile device. Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. Keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, with multiple images, and streaking and sensitivity to light. It is typically diagnosed in a patient's adolescent years to the third decade. In most cases, corrective lenses are effective enough to allow the patient to continue to function normally. Estimates of the prevalence for keratoconus range from one in 500 to one in 2,000 people. KeraSoft IC, available through authorized laboratories, is a soft contact lens specifically designed to fit irregular corneas. With traditional contact lenses, many people experience limited wear time, glare and discomfort after only a few hours. KeraSoft IC is made of silicone hydrogel for added comfort, and can be fully customized to fit the shape of keratoconic and post-surgical corneas. KeraSoft IC uses a patented design to "drape" over the cornea rather than using thickness of material to "mask" the irregularity. Its innovative design uses the latest technologies to create a soft contact lens that fits many unusually shaped corneas.
