Bausch + Lomb announced the launch of ScleralFil sterile buffered solution with no preservatives, which is indicated for inserting and rinsing scleral lenses. ScleraFil contains no preservative or mercury-containing ingredients that can be sensitive to some contact lens wearers, and is buffered to maintain pH. The solution is indicated for use to insert scleral lenses and can also be used to rinse soft (hydrophilic) and rigid gas permeable contact lenses to remove debris and traces of daily cleaner, prior to lens insertion.
This product will be available to order from the new Specialty Vision Products Web Store, a fast and convenient way for eye care professionals and patients to order ScleralFil as well as other Bausch + Lomb Specialty Vision Products solutions. ScleraFil may also be available through select Authorized Boston Manufacturers.
“Our mission is to increase access to customized lens and lens care products for both patients and eye care professionals. Our new web store will help make it easier for both patients and eye care professionals to do so by giving them the ability to place and track their solutions orders anytime and anywhere, in addition to automatic delivery, so that patients never run out of product,” David Bland, director, Specialty Vision Products, Bausch + Lomb, said in a company news release. “We are excited to offer ScleralFil preservative free saline solution as another option to meet the needs of both scleral lens wearers and eye care professionals.”
“As scleral lenses require careful insertion and aftercare to ensure comfortable and hygienic wear, it’s important that we recommend appropriate products to our scleral patients,” Jason Jedlicka, OD, FAAO, FSLS, FCLSA, said in the news release. “The new ScleralFil solution will offer my patients a convenient and easy-to-use option to insert and rinse their lenses.”
In addition to providing access to specialty vision products, eye care professionals can order their Boston Solutions Care Systems from the new Bausch + Lomb Specialty Vision Products Web Store. The Web Store will offer patients the convenience of 24/7 ordering, with free shipping on orders of $20 or more. This allows patients to easily obtain physician-prescribed products, and comply with their recommended lens care regimen. The Web Store will offer lens care and handling tips, plus product information to help support compliance.
