BAUSCH + LOMB LAUNCHES EXPANDED PARAMETERS FOR BIOTRUE® ONEDAY FOR ASTIGMATISM DAILY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES

 

Lens Parameters Expanded by Nearly 60 percent, Providing Eye Care Professionals the Broadest Offering Among All Daily Disposable Toric Lenses

 

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Jan. 6, 2020 – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announced the U.S. launch of expanded parameters for Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism daily disposable contact lenses. The expansion will increase the toric parameter range by more than 60 percent, offering eye care professionals and their astigmatic patients the largest parameter offering of any daily disposable toric lens.1

 

“Our full family of Biotrue® ONEday lenses, including Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism, provide eye care professionals with the lens that has the most moisture of any daily disposable lens on the market. Now, with this parameter expansion, eye care professionals can also fit more of their astigmatic patients than ever before with the lens that has the most toric parameters of any other daily disposable lens,” said John Ferris, general manager, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “We are dedicated to building upon and enhancing our portfolio so that eye care professionals have the tools they need to address the unique vision needs of more of their patients.”

The expanded parameters, which are now available for eye care professionals and their patients, include 30 new axes found below in bold:

“With the additional parameters of Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism lenses, more of my patients will be able to experience the benefits that this toric lens offers, including all-day comfort and convenience,” said Mile Brujic, O.D., Premier Vision Group, Bowling Green, OH. “Finding a solution for patients with astigmatism was once a barrier. However, given the advancements in technology and the expansion of parameters such as those seen in Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism lenses, we can now provide patients the comfort and quality of vision they expect and deserve with a daily disposable toric lens.”

Similar to the other products in the Biotrue® ONEday brand family, Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism lenses are formulated with a patented dehydration barrier, which allows the lens to maintain nearly 100 percent of its moisture for a full 16 hours.1 Biotrue® ONEday for Astigmatism contact lenses also offer an evolved peri-ballast design, featuring a tapered edge to limit lid interaction, and spherical aberration control to help reduce halos and glare, particularly in low light conditions.
