Bausch + Lomb announced that it has received approval from Health Canada for the sale of Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day daily disposable silicone hydrogel (SiHy daily) contact lenses.
Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day contact lenses feature a next generation contact lens material (kalifilcon A) with Advanced MoistureSeal Technology to deliver a highly wettable surface and excellent breathability for healthy lens wear, according to a company news release.

The Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day contact lenses featuring the Advanced MoistureSeal and ComfortFeel technologies provide a complete design of high oxygen, low modulus, easy handling, UV blocking1 and High Definition Optics to meet the demands of today’s contact lens wearer.
“Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day brings a higher standard of innovation to the contact lens category,” Thomas J. Appio, president, Bausch + Lomb/International, said in a company news release. “This breakthrough new silicone hydrogel daily disposable is a welcome addition to our already robust contact lens portfolio and allows our eye care practitioners to take their patients and practice further – to live the ULTRA life.”
Bausch + Lomb anticipates that Bausch + Lomb Ultra One Day lenses will be available to select practitioners in Canada beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020 with a full national launch in early 2021.
