Introducing Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Astigmatism Contact Lenses

Innovative Toric Lens Delivers All-Day Comfort and Consistently Clear Vision1

FOR RELEASE THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2017


BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announced the launch of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Astigmatism contact lenses, an innovative monthly silicone hydrogel lens that combines MoistureSeal® technology, which helps to maintain 95% of lens moisture for a full 16 hours2, and OpticAlign design, engineered for stability to promote a successful first fit1. This latest offering advances the family of Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® contact lens products, providing astigmatic patients the same all-day comfort and consistently clear vision1 that spherical and presbyopic patients experience with this technology today.

 

My astigmatic patients often complain of struggling with dryness, blurred vision and glare,” said Ben Gaddie, O.D., an eye care professional 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 day1, even when using digital devices or driving at night1.”

 

Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Astigmatism features MoistureSeal® technology, which helps to maintain 95% of lens moisture for a full 16 hours2 through a unique two-phase polymerization process. 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, eye care professionals report rotation at dispensing of 5 degrees or less for 94% of patients when fitting Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Astigmatism1.

                                                                                                                                                   

“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, vice president and 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.”
