Title (EN) COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS FOR ENHANCING CONTACT LENS WEARABILITY
(FR) COMPOSITIONS ET PROCEDES POUR UN MEILLEUR CONFORT DES LENTILLES DE CONTACT
Abstract:
(EN) Compositions and methods for treating a contact lens very effectively and conveniently provide enhanced contact lens wearability by reducing the actual or perceived ocular sensitivity which results from exposing a contact lens to non-oxidative antimicrobial components. The present system takes advantage of inactivating or deactivating a non-oxidative antimicrobial component located on or in a contact lens to reduce the ocular sensitivity caused by placing the lens in the eye.
(FR) L'invention concerne des compositions et des procédés permettant de traiter une lentille de contact de façon très efficace et appropriée pour en améliorer le confort. Ces procédés consistent à réduire la sensibilité oculaire effective ou perçue résultant de l'exposition d'une lentille de contact à des composants antimicrobiens non oxydants. Le présent système utilise avantageusement l'inactivation ou la désactivation d'un composant antimicrobien non oxydant situé sur ou dans une lentille de contact, afin de réduire la sensibilité oculaire provoquée par la mise en place de la lentille sur l'oeil.
