Garden City, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Garden City optometrist, Dr. Steven Schoenbart, is one of four in Long Island selected to offer Bausch + Lomb ULTRA™, New Monthly Replacement Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lens.
According to Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, the initial rollout of its breakthrough monthly Bausch + Lomb ULTRA™ contact lens with MoistureSealTM technology began in February. The new lens technology, which has been studied and developed for seven years, combines a breakthrough material with new manufacturing processes to produce a contact lens that breaks the cycle of discomfort for unsurpassed comfort and vision all day.
“Many patients I treat, spend more than 10 hours each day using digital devices. We are proud to offer a new contact lens solution that surpasses current standards for comfort, vision, and eye health. We believe that Bausch + Lomb ULTRA does just that,” says Dr. Schoenbart. “I am excited to be one of the first 300 eye care professionals in the country, to be trained in this new technology.”
The Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses are now being distributed in select markets, including Schoenbart Vision Care, in Garden City. A national roll-out scheduled for later this spring.
