Global eye health company Bausch + Lomb has announced the availability of ULTRA® for Astigmatism contact lenses in cylinder power of -2.75D, which is available across all power ranges in the portfolio, from +6.00D to -9.00D. Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism lenses combine MoistureSeal® technology, which helps to maintain 95 percent of lens moisture for a full 16 hours, and OpticAlign™ design, engineered for stability to promote a successful first fit. This latest expansion will allow eye care professionals to fit more of their astigmatic patients with these lenses to provide all-day comfort, stability, and consistently clear vision.
In a survey of contact lens wearers who were prescribed Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism, 91 percent of patients agreed that the lenses are comfortable all day long and 93 percent agreed the lenses reduce halos and glare, even in low-light conditions.
“I’m excited to have the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Astigmatism contact lenses in -2.75D available in my fit set, particularly because I’ve continued to find tremendous success with the lens platform overall,” said Mile Brujic, O.D., Premier Vision Group, Bowling Green, OH. “In the past when our practice had patients that required this cylinder power, we had to special order lenses and schedule a follow-up appointment. Now, patients can be fit in the lens and take home a trial pair within the same visit, making the visit more productive while fulfilling the needs of my patients.”
