GP lens for keratoconus
Contact Lens says its Rose K2 aberration control contact lens delivers high levels
of vision and comfort for keratoconic patients. The lens design features a parabolic
section on the posterior lens surface to counteract spherical aberrations present
in steeper and higher-minus keratoconus lens designs. Additionally, the company
says, a larger posterior optical zone, reduced lens mass and aberration-controlled
optics provide up to two lines of visual acuity improvement, reduce glare, halo
and flare in dim lighting conditions. The company also says they provide longer
hours of wear with improved lens comfort.
O.D.s can use their existing Rose K fitting set to fit the Rose

Dry eye drops
says its Systane Free lubricant eye drops are preserved in the bottle, but preservative-free
in the eye. The liquid gel features preservation in the bottle that's achieved with
ions and buffer systems that prevent microbial growth. Once Systane Free comes in
contact with ions found in the eye, such as potassium and sodium, the ionic buffer-preserving
system is rendered inactive. Alcon says the drop is formulated at an optimal pH
for day and night use.
Free won't irritate dry eye patients who are sensitive to preservatives.
