GP Material Available for Ortho-K

B&L WILL EXPAND DISTRIBUTION

Bausch & Lomb announced that its patented Boston Equalens II gas permeable lens material is now available for orthokeratology treatment. The company acquired the FDA Premarket Approval application for the overnight ortho-k indication issued in June 2004 to Euclid Systems Corp., which conducted clinical trials using B&L’s Equalens II GP lens material. B&L said that it plans to expand distribution of the lens material to other Boston-authorized manufacturers over the next few months to coincide with the early fall commercial launch of the Equalens II material to U.S. eyecare professionals.
