New Peroxide Lens Care System Launches

OcuSoft, Inc. has entered into a joint venture agreement with Essentia Pharma, LLC to introduce and market the OcuSoft Lens Care System for soft lenses.

OCUSOFT NOW OFFERS A HYDROGEN PEROXIDE CARE SOLUTION.

OcuSoft Lens Care System's convenient 3-in-1 system deep cleans, stores, and disinfects with the efficacy of 3% hydrogen peroxide while ensuring comfort with a lubricating agent and no added preservatives, according to the company. OcuSoft says that its Lens Care System is ideal for all soft contact lenses but is especially beneficial for silicone hydrogel lenses, which are prone to reduced wettability and subsequent microbial contamination. Patients who have sensitive eyes, contact lens-induced dry eye, or poor contact lens retention time may also benefit from using the OcuSoft Lens Care System.

OcuSoft, Inc. has made a conscious decision to limit retail availability of its new lens care system to assist practitioners in the promotion of their practice. Special discount pricing is available to practitioners for dispensing from their office. Alternatively, patients may order direct at www.ocusoft.com. Call (800) 233-5469.

Supplement Available for Diabetic Vision

EyeScience Labs has developed a new eye vitamin for people who have diabetes. The new product, Diabetic Vision Formula, was developed in an effort to help protect against potential vision problems associated with diabetic retinopathy.

EyeScience Labs says that its new Diabetic Vision Formula is a very comprehensive, scientifically formulated ocular vitamin. The company adds that this announcement comes after years of extensive research and clinical studies found that the ingredients in Diabetic Vision Formula help promote ocular health and may protect from Diabetic Eye Disease. The Diabetic Vision Formula was formulated to help target the oxidative stress that can negatively impact the blood vessel system in the eyes for people who live with diabetes, according to the company.

The Diabetic Vision Formula contains 11 different nutrients including vitamin B-6, omega-3, niacin, lutein, alpha lipoic acid, cinnamon bark, bilberry, and grape seed extract.
