BostonSight, a nonprofit eye healthcare organization and research center dedicated to saving sight and improving quality of life, announced today they have partnered with Spectrum International to expand global access to BostonSight SCLERAL, the organization’s commercial scleral lens product. The partnership with Spectrum brings BostonSight SCLERAL to the Latin American market, supporting BostonSight’s mission to help people with corneal disease worldwide retain their sight and improve ocular comfort.
BostonSight SCLERAL is a specialty lens product that is manufactured at BostonSight’s ISO-certified, FDA-compliant manufacturing laboratory in Needham, Massachusetts. The easy-to-fit scleral lens provides long-term comfort and improved vision for those suffering with challenging eye issues such as dry eye, keratoconus, and corneal disease.
“We are thrilled to partner with Spectrum International to bring BostonSight SCLERAL to the Latin American market,” said Sara Yost, BostonSight President and CEO. “At BostonSight, we seek to improve the ocular health of people around the world. By expanding to Latin America, we are providing the best solution to empower practitioners to achieve successful outcomes for their patients. Our U.S. patient generated health data shows that 92% of BostonSight SCLERAL patients continue using BostonSight SCLERAL lenses.”
 
BostonSight continually improves their lens offerings through research and innovation. BostonSight SCLERAL’s new “triple-play” FitKit provides practitioners with three diameters of trial lenses in one kit so that practitioners can find an effective fit even faster. BostonSight
SCLERAL’s data-driven design fits 3 out of 4 patients right from the start, regardless of patient diagnosis. BostonSight also offers SmartChannel Technology, which facilitates optimal lens fits even when anatomical obstacles are present.
“We are excited to offer BostonSight SCLERAL in our portfolio of products,” said Felipe Arroyave, Spectrum International President. “BostonSight SCLERAL is a leading scleral lens featuring innovative technology that makes it easy for practitioners to provide greater patient satisfaction.”
