(FR) COMPOSITION DE LAVAGE POUR MANIPULER DES LENTILLES DE CONTACT
Abstract
(EN)
A method for minimizing microbial contamination of contact lenses during the handling of the lenses. The method comprises instructing a person that wears contact lenses to wash their hands prior to the handling of the contact lenses with a wash composition. The wash composition includes one or more surfactants selected from the group consisting of non-ionic, cationic, amphoteric or zwitterionic surfactants, and optionally, an anionic surfactant. The wash composition also includes an antimicrobial agent that is compatible with ocular tissue. The invention is also directed to a kit for to assist contact lens wearers with the care maintenance of their lenses. The kit includes the wash composition and a multipurpose contact lens solution. The wash composition is suitable for use with the multipurpose contact lens solution.

La présente invention concerne un procédé pour minimiser la contamination microbienne de lentilles de contact lors de la manipulation des lentilles. Le procédé comprend la consigne à une personne portant des verres de contact de se laver les mains avec une composition de lavage préalablement à la manipulation des lentilles de contact. La composition de lavage comporte un ou des tensioactifs choisis parmi le groupe constitué de tensioactifs non ioniques, cationiques, amphotères ou zwitteroniques, et éventuellement, un tensioactif anionique. La composition de lavage comporte également un agent antimicrobien qui est compatible avec le tissu oculaire. L'invention concerne également une trousse pour aider des utilisateurs de lentilles de contact dans soins d'entretien de leurs lentilles de contact. La trousse comporte la composition de lavage et une solution polyvalente de lentilles de contact. La composition de lavage est apte à être utilisée avec la solution polyvalente de lentilles de contact.
