THE HYPER-CL CONTACT LENS INCREASES DROPS APPLIED
CONTACT TIME, FOR AN EFFECTIVE THERAPY
The Hyper-CL™ therapeutic contact lens provides a novel solution for the treatment of corneal pathologies. Coupled with ophthalmic drops, the lens has been shown to have an impact on treatment outcome.
The Hyper-CL™ therapeutic contact lens has proven to be a success in several clinical trials. The Hyper-CL™ is the only indicated contact lens solution to relieve corneal edema symptoms. Study results exhibit Hyper-CL™ superiority over regular contact lenses, both in terms of reducing cornea thickness and upgraded vision equity. It was clinically proven that a considerable percentage of corneal edema patients, as high as 50%, will benefit from a significant visual acuity improvement, leading to a substantially increased quality of life.
The prescribed lens may be used for extended wear up to 7 continuous days. It can be removed for cleaning and disinfection (chemical, not heat) at any time and then reinserted to the eye. In addition, the Hyper-CL™ contact lens offers an added protective layer to the eye, shielding it from the eyelid to allow for better recuperation and improved healing.
HOW DOES IT WORK? THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME
The unique design of the Hyper-CL™, comprised of dual base curves, a reservoir, and fenestrations, enables the capture and delivery of a drop of solution applied to the contact lens surface. Once applied, the drop would migrate into space between the lens and the cornea, extending the contact time with the objective of enhancing the drop/drug effectiveness. When drops are dripped on the patient’s eye, they will reach the spacing through the fenestrations in the lens and will not get washed away quickly. The drops will remain in contact with the eye for a longer time and improve medication’s effectiveness.
The Hyper-CL™ is indicated for therapeutic use to protect the corneal surface and to relieve corneal pain, in the treatment of acute or chronic ocular pathologies. The lens may be prescribed for 7 continuous days wear with removal for cleaning and disinfection once in 14 days. The Hyper-CL™ can also provide optical correction during the healing process if required.
In order to alleviate corneal edema, it is recommended to use a hypertonic solution in combination with the Hyper-CL™. Here’s how it works after the Hyper-CL™ lens is inserted to the eye:
3 drops are administered, the patient blinks, and 3 additional drops are administered
Drops fill the reservoir
Drops in reservoir remain in contact with the eye for an extended period of time
The standard parameters of the Hyper-CL™ lens are: diameter 15.5 and BC
8.2. These parameters will fit about 85–90% of patients. EyeYon can
produce the Hyper-CL™ lens with other parameters as well, including
an optical correction if needed.
The Hyper-CL™ can have an optical correction according to a specific prescription.
The Hyper-CL™ is indicated for an extended wear of 7 days up to total of 14 days. In any case, we recommend you consult with your eye practitioner.
