Contact Lenses

A soft contact lens is a hydrophilic (water loving) disc that floats on your cornea. Like prescription glasses, a contact lens is specifically shaped to focus light into the retina of your eye. But unlike glasses which you can see over and under, contact lenses cover your cornea, correcting your entire field of vision.

If you are short-sighted, long-sighted or if you have astigmatism or presbyopia, ask your eye care professional if Bausch + Lomb contact lenses are right for you.

8-  Data on file: Study 815: Thirty-nine ECPs from 10 countries refitted 422 existing soft contact lens-wearing presbyopes into PureVision2 for Presbyopia contact lenses. Patients returned for a follow-up visit after 1-2 weeks of wearing study lenses, and the ECPs determined if patients would continue with the dispensed lenses or refine the fit. Patients could have up to three extra fitting visits if needed. Upon exiting the study, patients completed a questionnaire about their wearing experiences and ECPs completed an online survey after all patients were exited.

† UV Warning – Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. The effectiveness of wearing UV-absorbing contact lenses in preventing or reducing the incidence of ocular disorders associated with exposure to UV light has not been established at this time. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care professional for more information.
