The move will enable UltraVision to distribute the lens globally and reach a wider market. Jerry Warner, Vice President of marketing and general manager at Bausch + Lomb, Global Contact Lens, said: "Extending the KeraSoft technology allows the lab to expand the ability of practitioners to offer life-changing vision correction to a wider range of patients who have a variety of irregular cornea conditions resulting from keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration."

The custom-made soft lens has been manufactured from silicone hydrogel materials and has been developed to correct irregular corneas, pellucid marginal degeneration and keratoconus.

Joseph Barr, vice president of Global Clinical and Medical Affairs and Professional Services, Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb, said: “This technology has totally transformed my view of contact lens management of keratoconus and irregular cornea patients. The visual results and enhancement of life are true advances.”
