The entire Bausch + Lomb ULTRA family of contact lenses is approved for extended wear up to 7 days with the same monthly replacement schedule.

Extended wear clinical study shows patient success

A year-long, comprehensive clinical study showed Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses provided an exceptional level of comfort when worn for extended wear.*

 

§Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses are indicated for daily wear or extended wear of up to seven days. As with any contact lens, problems can result in serious injury to the eye, including loss of vision, and clinical studies have shown that the risk of serious adverse reactions is increased when lenses are worn overnight. It is essential that patients follow the eye care practitioner’s direction and all labeling instructions for proper use of lenses and lens care products. Consult the package insert for complete information.

*Results from a multi-site 12-month study of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses, when worn on a seven day, extended wear basis. A total of 816 patients were enrolled (406 Bausch + Lomb ULTRA and 410 control lenses) by 34 independent investigators. Performance experience ratings were obtained at follow-up visits using a 0-100 rating scale with 0 denoting the most unfavorable rating and 100 denoting the most favorable rating. The results represent the average rating over all follow-up visits.



MoistureSeal technology

Helps maintain 95% of lens moisture
for a full 16 hours1









Innovative lens material designed to meet the demands of digital device users

When using a digital device, patients may blink 66% less on average,1 which could contribute to dehydration



 More than 60% of adults spend 5 or more hours on digital devices each day2




 73% of individuls in their 20s report symptoms of digital eye strain3






MoistureSeal Technology

Helps maintain 95% of lens moisture for a full 16 hours1

Proprietary, two-phase manufacturing process retains moisture and delivers a highly wettable surface1

Phase 1

  • Combines long- and short-chain monomers to formulate a unique silicone backbone
  • Produces a material that delivers a Dk/t of 163 and modulus of 70

Phase 2

  • PVP grows around and throughout the silicone backbone

Moisture retention in lens core

High volume of PVP at the core provides
excellent moisture retention

High wettability at lens surface

Tightly compact PVP at the
surface delivers high wettability


9 out of 10 patients agree that Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses help relieve their eyes from feeling dry and tired after a long day of looking at digital devices4 



Bausch + Lomb ULTRA: Excellent Material Properties

Aspheric Optics Designed to Reduce Spherical Aberration

Spherical aberration in an optical system may reduce visual quality by introducing blur, particularly in low-light environments. Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses have an aspheric optical design to reduce inherent and induced spherical aberration. 

These values represent the amount of residual spherical aberration present (assuming a +0.18 µm population average) after the reduction provided by each lens brand listed.*
