Disposable contact lenses contribute to company sales growth

A brand of disposable contact lenses has been named as the key reason for a rise in sales for an eyecare company.

Unilens has experienced a two per cent rise in sales in the fiscal year"s most recent quarter, compared to the same period for 2008, reports the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

The C-Vue disposable contact lenses line was cited as a main cause of this increase.

In addition, there was also a rise in sales of licensed products from Unilens licensee Bausch & Lomb.

Unilens reported its net income for the quarter ending at the close of March to be $446,850 (£280,015).

Headquartered in Largo, Florida, Unilens was set up in 1989 and produces soft and gas permeable contact lenses.

Its products cover soft moulded multifocal contact lenses and soft lathe-cut multifocal ones, as well as toric multifocal lenses and replacement spherical lenses.

Unilens Corp is its wholly-owned subsidiary.
