Bausch + Lomb INFUSE

Updated: August 8, 2020

Bausch + Lomb INFUSE is a brand new daily disposable silicone hydrogel soft contact lens developed by Bausch + Lomb. The product will be available to eye care practitioners in the second half of 2020.

Highlights

  • The cast-molded lens is made with a new silicone hydrogel material called Kalifilcon A.
  • It features UV blocking with Class 2 UV blocking capabilities.
  • The water content is greater than 50% which - based on the FDA classification system - makes this lens a V-B class lens. V-B stands for the group of silicone hydrophilic soft contact lenses that are non-ionic and have a greater than 50% water content.
  • As INFUSE competes with the best-in-class daily silicone hydrogel lenses from Johnson and Johnson, Alcon, and CooperVision, Bausch + Lomb equipped this lens with high oxygen transmission capabilities and a 134 Dk/t value.
  • A 'High Definition Optics' lens design reduces induced spherical aberration and improves visual performance.
  • To address contact lens dryness and discomfort, Bausch Health introduces a new hydration technology called ProBalance Technology™. This technology provides a combination of two wetting agents (Poloxamine 1107 and Poloxamer 181), special osmoprotecting ingredients (Erythritol and Glycerin) and potassium (one of the electrolytes found in the tear film).
