Today Abbott Medical Optics announced the launch of RevitaLens OcuTec™, a unique next-generation multi-purpose disinfecting solution for silicone hydrogel and conventional soft contact lenses in Singapore.

RevitaLens OcuTec™ Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution delivers high-quality disinfection and comfort for the user, with the convenience of a single bottle. The solution was developed in cooperation with world class silicone hydrogel, microbiology and chemistry experts and with input from more than 600 eye care professionals.

"This advanced, next-generation solution establishes a new standard of disinfecting technology for contact lens wearers, " said Jim Mazzo, senior vice president, Abbott Medical Optics. "Proper contact lens care, including a rub and rinse regimen using RevitaLens OcuTec™, will help patients achieve clean and comfortable lenses while enhancing overall lens-wearing satisfaction."

It is estimated that there are 125 million contact lens wearers worldwide. Multi-purpose solutions (MPS) represent the majority of systems used for the care of soft contact lenses. These comprise a single solution for the rinsing, cleaning, disinfection and storage of lenses and are typically composed of a preservative, buffer system and other agents to aid in lens cleaning and comfort.

Key characteristics of RevitaLens OcuTec™ Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution include:

• high effectiveness against a broad spectrum of ocular pathogens in the environment;
• effectively kills hard-to-eliminate Acanthamoeba cysts and Fusarium;
• significant removal of proteins from the lens surface;
• low corneal staining;
• minimizes risk of eye complications;
• excellent compatibility and comfort for silicon hydrogel and conventional lens wearers.

"I am happy to see the contact lens solution industry developing new products, such as RevitaLens OcuTec™, that enhance patient safety by providing a good balance of superior disinfection, comfort and convenience, " said Mr Arion Wong, Senior Optometrist, United EyeCare.

RevitaLens OcuTec™ Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution will be available at leading optical and pharmacy outlets on 24 March 2011, with the recommended retail price of $13 for 300ml bottle and $6 for 120ml bottle. The product has been approved by FDA and was launched in the US in October 2010. The product also has CE Mark approval in Europe and has been selling in Europe since September 2010.
