KeraSoft for Irregular Corneas launches in Switzerland

December 21, 2009 Posted by UltraVision


KeraSoft IC, the newest addition to the KeraSoft family of lenses, has been successfully launched in Switzerland by KeraSoft SARL. It was set up in Switzerland by Luc Tissot, and his wife Katia, to act as Distributor on behalf of UK based contact lens manufacturer, UltraVision. Tissot Watches has been connected with innovative high-tech products manufactured with special materials and advanced functionality, since 1853, which fits in nicely with UltraVision’s products and positioning.
Keratoconus Consultant & Optometrist, Lynn White, presented at the launch the major benefits she can now offer to keratoconic patients through using KeraSoft contact lenses, citing a number of case-studies. UltraVision’s CEO, J Keith Lomas, was in attendance and spoke about the UltraVision Group and the benefits and pleasure of partnering with Luc Tissot and his team, a name synonymous with the best technologies and quality engineering in Switzerland.
Optometrists representing each French Canton of Switzerland attended the launch and the immediate and subsequent feedback was most positive.
KeraSoft IC, for all irregular corneas including keratoconus, is a soft lens designed to give optimum visual performance for the most complex patients. If required, the lens can be manufactured with full Sector Management Control (SMC), thereby enabling a tailor-made fit for any irregular cornea.  KeraSoft IC is available in two lathe-cut materials; a 74% water Silicone Hydrogel and 77% water conventional Hydrogel, both of which provide the healthiest basis for a complex lens.
