Alcon Supports Contact Lens Hygiene with Educational Materials for Young Wearers

Alcon has launched educational materials to help parents with children wearing contact lenses understand the importance of contact lens hygiene and provide them with simple instructions on how to care for their contact lenses.

According to the company, awareness of contact lens hygiene is particularly important given the increasing number of people, especially children being under myopia control using Ortho-K.

Ortho-k patients often demand more than a multipurpose solution. When wearing contacts, materials such as mucous, protein, and other debris can build up on the surface during the day. Disinfecting contact lens solutions remove these materials as well as harmful germs. This may prevent the development of eye infections or other serious complications

An Alcon lens care product – AOSEPT PLUS with HydraGlyde® is a gold standard of hydrogen peroxide-based solutions for both soft and hard contact lenses. AOSEPT PLUS with HydraGlyde® contains no added preservatives. An easy one-step system with no tablet required, it improves compliance compared to multipurpose solutions1 and is suitable for both hard and soft contact lenses.2

AOSEPT PLUS with HydraGlyde®’s unique formulation contains:
Triple Action Cleaning System3-9
1. Hydrogen peroxide cleans and disinfects,3-6
2. A built-in surfactant removes deposits,7,8,9
3. Bubbling action enhances surface protein removal 7,8,9

Unique Wetting Agent to Improve Comfort
The HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix – a scientifically-advanced proprietary synthetic block copolymer – embeds itself on and within the lens and reduces surface hydrophobicity.9
