Opti-Free PureMoist CL Solution

Patients who wear soft frequent replacement contact lenses require a contact lens care solution with broad spectrum activity against a range of microbes.1 Additionally they need a solution that optimises comfort performance.2

Opti-Free PureMoist is a multipurpose disinfecting solution.3 With its dual disinfection of Polyquad/Aldox, it meets the primary performance criteria of a minimum 99.9% reduction across three reference bacteria and at least a 90% reduction of the two reference fungi within the manufacturer’s minimum recommended soaking period.3,4 Polyquad/Aldox has also shown broad spectrum in vitro bactericidal activity against a range of microbes outside the scope of the ISO 14729 standard.5,6

Optifree PureMoist contains the biphasic HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix.7 One end of the molecule targets and attaches to the lens, the other end has a high affinity for moisture.7 The HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix encapsulates the lens to keep it moist for up to 16 hours, contributing to lens comfort from insertion to removal.7
