BAUSCH + LOMB ANNOUNCES SCIENTIFIC DATA ON BAUSCH + LOMB INFUSE™ SILICONE HYDROGEL DAILY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES TO BE PRESENTED AT THE VIRTUAL GLOBAL SPECIALTY LENS SYMPOSIUM

Bausch + Lomb Will Also Host Presentation on Technologies that Can Help Create Efficiencies in Fitting Zenlens™ Scleral Lenses on Patients

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Jan. 20, 2021 – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health business, today announced that two poster presentations will feature data on the new Bausch + Lomb INFUSE™ silicone hydrogel (SiHy) daily disposable contact lenses during the virtual Global Specialty Lens Symposium (GSLS) Annual Meeting, which takes place Jan. 21-23, 2021. Bausch + Lomb also will offer attendees the opportunity to participate in a presentation about its Zenlens™ scleral lenses.

Bausch + Lomb INFUSE contact lenses have been developed to help maintain ocular surface homeostasis to aid in minimizing symptoms of contact lens dryness, which is experienced by approximately a third1 of the 45 million lens wearers in the United States,”2,3 said John Ferris, vice president and general manager, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “We look forward to presenting these new data to further demonstrate the benefits of this innovative lens material and design, as well as providing eye care professionals the opportunity to learn how using various optometric technology can help provide fitting success with our Zenlens™ scleral custom lenses.”

Bausch + Lomb INFUSE Poster Presentations
The Bausch + Lomb INFUSE poster presentations will be accessible to conference attendees via the GSLS website from Jan. 21-23, 2021.

The poster presentations are as follows:
  • Scheuer, Catherine et al. “Impact of a Novel Contact Lens on Maintaining the Native State of a Tear Film Protein”
    • An in vitro study to investigate the ability of a contact lens solution to stabilize the representative tear film protein lysozyme in its native state.
  • Steffen, Robert et al. “Evaluation of the Stability of Surface Water Characteristics of Contact Lenses Using Refractive Index Shifts after Wear of Daily Disposable Lenses”
    • A study to investigate surface water stability using refractive index shifts after insertion for four unique polymers, kalifilcon A, delefilcon A, verofilcon A and nesofilcon A.

Zenlens™ Event Presentation
On Jan. 22, 2021, from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. ET, Bausch + Lomb will host a presentation featuring one of its prominent custom contact lenses, Zenlens™ scleral lenses, led by Jason Jedlicka O.D., FAAO, FSLS, FCLSA, associate professor and director of the Cornea and Contact Lens Service, Indiana University School of Optometry. During the event, “Using Technology for Fitting Success”, Dr. Jedlicka will discuss how technology can help create fitting efficiencies using the Zenlens lenses through the use of corneal topography, scleral topography and anterior segment optical coherence tomography.
