Alcon Launches Its Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning Solution in U.S.
Alcon recently launched its U.S. Clear Care Plus Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution containing HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix technology, for cleaning and disinfecting contact lenses. The Clear Care and Clear Care Plus Cleaning & Disinfecting Solutions contain 3% hydrogen peroxide and are indicated for use with soft (hydrophilic) and rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses. During the disinfection process, the hydrogen peroxide is neutralized in the special lens case provided to leave behind a preservative-free saline solution that is gentle on the eyes. Cleaned and disinfected lenses can be stored in the neutralized solution in the unopened lens case up to seven days. Clear Care and Clear Care Plus require patients to follow special cleaning and disinfecting instructions, including ensuring the lenses remain in the special lens case for at least six hours to allow the hydrogen peroxide to neutralize. Special care is needed to follow directions to avoid accidental misuse. Read more.
