Zeiss Vision Care US announced the launch of the Zeiss UVClean technology, an optometry-specific UV-C disinfecting device designed for eye care professionals and developed in conjunction with Voxelight. Zeiss UVClean is now available for pre-ordering on a first-come-first-served basis to eye care professionals in the US and Canada.
As the eye care industry emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, eye care professionals must adhere to strict hygiene protocols which places pressure on their ability to serve the same number of patients that they used to see before the outbreak. The Zeiss UVClean is a simple, fast, and compact device that thoroughly disinfects 6-10 pairs of eyeglasses of all sizes and shapes in as little as 40 seconds. At the push of a button, the device leaves the eyewear disinfected and ready for the next patient.
The Zeiss UVClean is a safe, fast, compact and aesthetically pleasing desktop unit that will easily fit into almost any eyeglass dispensary, according to a Zeiss news release. The Zeiss UVClean device uses just the right amount of concentrated UV-C light that won’t damage eyeglasses with normal use, keeping frames & lenses disinfected, dry and ready for the next patient. With the Zeiss UVClean, practices can now balance hygiene and patient care without having to make any compromises.
“The launch of Zeiss UVClean addresses an urgent need within the industry,” said Jens Boy, president of Zeiss Vision Care North America. “After COVID-19 hit, we quickly noticed that frame and lens disinfecting has become a major drag on productivity in eyecare dispensaries. Most improvised solutions involve liquids, chemicals, smells and potentially create a lot of waste. Meanwhile, most UVC disinfecting devices are either repurposed medical/industrial cabinets or else basic consumer electronics boxes. In stark contrast, the Zeiss UVClean is specifically designed from the ground up to help eyecare practices spend less time cleaning and more time engaging with their patients.”
The ZEISS UVClean unit is priced at: $945.00 US
