Waterford round table meeting

Posted on 22nd October 2012

A couple of weeks ago Ian took part in a round table discussion with industry leaders regarding a new lens from Bausch + Lomb in Waterford, Ireland – BioTrue.

Taking the same name as the popular solution, B+L have tried to a produce a lens that is built around the natural properties of the eye. For example the lens has the same amount of water in it as the cornea (the front of the eye, where the lens rests), 78%. The surface of the lens also mimics your eye’s own healthy tears to retain moisture and shape giving great comfort and long wearing times.

The lens proved quite popular with those who had tried it at the meeting and some of our patients have already moved on to it after liking the benefits.

If you wear daily disposables and aren’t get the comfort you need, we can send you a sample of this new lens to try. If you don’t wear daily lenses but fancy the convenience, then give us a call. At the moment the lenses are only available in minus powers (up to -8.00) but more will be coming next year.

Waterford was a interesting place to visit and we stayed in Waterford Castle situated on its own private island which is only accessible by ferry. Great fun but a bit of a hassle if this was your daily commute…
