[ADVERTORIAL] RevitaLens OcuTec™ Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution

Do you wear contact lens?
Do you know that poor contact lens care habits may lead to risks such as discomfort (dryness, redness, itchiness) and increase the risk for serious eye infections?

 It is estimated that there are more than 500,000 contact wearers in Singapore and about 200 cases of eye infection are diagnosed in every 100,000 contact lens wearers. Experts agree that compliance with proper lens care and regular eye checks at least one a year by an eye care practitioner is critical to maintain good eye health for contact lens wearers.

To address the problem of non-compliant contact lens wearers, there is a need for the development of next generation solutions which can remove a broader spectrum of potentially harmful microorganisms including Acanthamoeba which causes 90% of keratitis cases, in order to minimize eye infections without causing high corneal staining in contact lens wearers.
