The contact lens industry benefits from constant innovations which help to enhance patient care and comfort, according to one sector specialist.
Arion Wong, senior optometrist at United EyeCare, made the comments after contact lens solution manufacturer Abbott unveiled its latest product, the RevitaLens OcuTec multi-purpose disinfecting solution.
According to Abbott, the new solution "establishes a new standard of disinfecting technology" for contact lens wearers by killing Acanthamoeba cysts and Fusarium, removing proteins from the lens surface and minimising the risk of eye complications.
Mr Wong commented: "I am happy to see the contact lens solution industry developing new products, such as RevitaLens OcuTec, that enhance patient safety by providing a good balance of superior disinfection, comfort and convenience."
