Alcon announced the newest addition to its contact lens care portfolio with the launch of Clear Care Rinse & Go, a saline solution for rinsing and temporary storage of contact lenses after cleaning and disinfection with Clear Care, Clear Care Plus, or any other hydrogen peroxide solution, according to a company news release.
Contact lens wearers who use hydrogen peroxide-based cleaning and disinfecting solutions may find a need at home or on the go to rinse their lenses.
“More than 60% of contact lens wearers who use a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaning and disinfecting solution also have something on-hand to rinse with, as needed,” Carla Mack, OD, MBA, FAAO, Director of Professional and Clinical Support, Alcon Vision Care, US, said in the news release. “For these wearers, Clear Care Rinse & Go provides a gentle saline solution that can be used to rinse contact lenses, as needed, and is also useful for new contact lens patients and those new to hydrogen peroxide-based cleaning.”
Clear Care Rinse & Go does not replace daily cleaning and disinfection of contact lenses, but is intended as a companion product to allow for rinsing of contact lenses, as needed, and for temporary storage of contact lenses, up to 30 days. Clear Care Rinse & Go will be available in two sizes – 12 fluid ounces and 4 fluid ounces – in most major mass, drug and grocery retailers in the United States in April 2016.
