Bubendorf, Switzerland, Friday, June 12, 2015 – CIS Pharma is investigating novel formulations and combinations of active ingredients to improve contact lens care. With over 25 years of experience and a track record of several lens care products licensed to and sold by partners globally, the team is targeting a novel concept that allows for higher contact lens wear comfort while keeping the efficacy of the product in disinfecting the contact lenses. This next generation contact lens care solution also offers patent protection.

About contact lens care

Contact lenses are medical devices and must be treated carefully. If lenses pick up dirt, they may transfer bacteria that can cause serious infections to the cornea. A multipurpose contact lens care solution effectively kills harmful bacteria and fungi while the lenses are stored. This is achieved by a mixture of powerful anti-infectives. In addition, multipurpose solutions remove various deposits such as lipid and protein aggregates from the lens surface. Other agents in multipurpose solutions are responsible for rewetting the lens to restore the wear comfort.
