Menicon and David Thomas Contact Lenses launch new CLs and solutions

New Rose K2 Soft daily wear contact lens for the irregular cornea and Menicare Pure solution for RGP lenses

Menicon UK and David Thomas Contact Lenses have launched the Rose K2 Soft daily wear contact lens for the irregular cornea.

The new lens is available as a three-month replacement lens when manufactured from silicone hydrogel materials or a six-month or 12-month lens, in the hydrogel material option.

Primary indications for prescribing are intolerance to gas-permeable lenses, new contact lens wearers with irregular corneas, early-to-moderate irregular corneas, or conditions where the environment may be unsuitable for gas-permeable wear, such as sporting applications.

The new lens uses the same five-step fitting method used in all Rose K designs and features an aspheric back optic zone, front surface toricity and front surface aberration control for optimal visual acuity.

In addition, it offers edge lift control, prism ballast stabilisation and reverse geometry to aid fitting.

The companies have also introduced the MeniCare Pure multipurpose solution to promote healthy RGP lens care.

The daily use solution is the first solution formulated with natural ingredients such as polylysine (instead of PHMB) as a disinfecting agent as well as vitamin C glucoside and hyaluronic acid. A double filtration manufacturing method has also been used to remove any undesired and toxic particles and provide purity to the solution formulation. The product comes in a one-touch-cap bottle for better sterility and integrity and easy handling.
