Regard Contact Lens Solution
Regard® is the innovative lens care solution that is preservative-free and oxygen releasing.
Regard disinfects and cleans contact lenses like a multi-purpose solution, but unlike others, doesn’t have preservatives that can create preservative sensitization of ocular dryness.
The highest levels of comfort are the result of the lack of preservatives, the efficacious cleaning of the lens and a built-in artificial tear.
So safe and gentle it can be poured directly into the eye !
- Multipurpose Solution for cleaning, rinsing and disinfecting contact lenses
- Preservative Free - reduces risk of irritation or allergy to the solution
- Also removes the bacterial biofilm in contact lens cases - a hidden source of eye infection
- Provides the same level of disinfection as a 3% hydrogen peroxide but is much safer - no separate neutralising is required
- Removes protein
- Contains a moisturising agent to increase comfort and reduce dryness
The chemistry is based around the stabilised oxychlorite molecule that will convert to chlorine dioxide in the presence of bacteria, but then reconvert to stable solution in the lens case or breakdown into salt, water and oxygen outside the lens case
Studies undertaken to improve contact lens wear have normally found the two main causes for complaints are discomfort and dryness.
Whilst preservatives may cause irritation, dryness may be exacerbated through the environmental demands placed on modern day contact lens wear.
Regard addresses this problem with the inclusion of Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, a comfort drop, which can be used to rewet lenses at any time.
Regard also contains Pluronic F-68 a tensio-active surfactant cleaner, which ensures the lenses are maintained in pristine condition.
Due to its unique chemistry, Regard can also help reduce the build-up of protein deposits.
The solution has an overall negative ionic charge, which is constantly attracting the positively charged protein molecules away from the lens surface.
Once opened, a bottle of Regard remains usable for 90 days and lenses can be stored for up to 30 days before requiring further disinfection.
