Bausch + Lomb Specialty Vision Products Launches New 28 Lens Zenlens™ Dx Set

Set Increases Utility with Four Additional Toric Peripheral Curve Lenses

FOR RELEASE MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2016 

BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announced that its Specialty Vision Products business has launched the Zenlens™ diagnostic lenses in a new 28 lens set format. Adding to the classic Zenlens™ 24 lens Dx format, which features six lenses in two diameters (16 & 17mm) and  two separate designs (prolate & oblate), the new 28 lens set adds four diagnostic lenses with toric peripheral curves. 

“Scleral lenses have become the fastest growing segment in specialty contact lens fitting,” said David Bland, director, Specialty Vision Products, Bausch + Lomb. “The Zenlens™ scleral lens has established an excellent reputation due to unique features such as the dual diameter design, SmartCurve™ lens design and MicroVault™ technology. The Zenlens™ 28 lens set will allow specialty lens fitters to help provide a successful lens wearing experience for their patients as an effective problem solver for challenging fits.”

The additional Dx lenses can help specialty lens fitters quickly and accurately assess scleral toricity to better determine proper peripheral lens toricity with the Zenlens™ toric peripheral system.

Bausch + Lomb Specialty Vision Products is committed to furthering education and support, while fulfilling the growing needs of the gas permeable market by providing eye care professionals finished contact lenses for serious optical conditions such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD), post-refractive surgery, and certain ocular surface diseases. The portfolio includes an extensive portfolio of custom and specialty lenses including HP Toric, ASTERA® Multifocal Toric, NovaKone® lenses for keratoconus, the Zenlens™ scleral lens, and the Boston® brand of products for gas permeable contact lenses. The
Bausch + Lomb Specialty Vision Products business also sponsors numerous webinars and training sessions for specialty lens fitters throughout the year, including educational events focused on specialty contact lens options for patients with serious optical conditions.
