Contact Lens Care
Pick Up Peroxide
The most advanced peroxide-based cleaning and disinfecting lens solution in nearly a decade is now on the market, according to Bausch + Lomb.

PeroxiClear is a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution designed for the 52% of contact lens wearers who report discomfort and the 44% who have experienced lens buildup issues when using peroxide-based products. The company says PeroxiClear has been proven to provide all-day comfort and up to 20 hours of moisture.


Low Vision
Mega Magnifiers
These task-vision LED hand and stand magnifiers have a bright, flicker-free low-heat bulb that lasts 10,000 hours, says Tech Optics International.

They’re available in 6D, 8D, 12D, 20D, 23D, 28D, 36D, 38D, 44D and 50D and designed for the visually impaired, those with macular degeneration, dyslexia, diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts, other diseases of the eye, as well as back and neck pain, osteoporosis, arthritis or RA, and a number of neurological disorders.

The debut line is handcrafted in family-owned workshops in the heart of Italy and combines various shapes from cat-eye to round and rectangular. Shauns offers eight classically unique styles in an array of understated, yet distinct, colors. The company will continue its tradition of providing an exam and prescription glasses for a patient in a developing country for each pair sold.

Specialized Lenses
A 19-month-old girl who was born with detached retinas in both eyes (at right) will develop the ability to perceive light and shade and enhance her perception using customized lenses developed by Zeiss’ Great Lakes lab.

The lenses were designed for Lainey Parker by request from her aunt, a Zeiss customer. The +15D toric polycarbonate lenses required manual fining and have increased her freedom of movement, the company says.
