Grand Junction, Colorado, January 12, 2012
Marty Dalsing, President of Contamac, US, announced the establishment of a new grant in support of the non-profit National Keratoconus Foundation. The grant, which will be ongoing, will be supporting the launch of Bausch + Lomb’s KeraSoft™ contact lenses for keratoconus. These lenses, recently licensed for release in North America, are manufactured exclusively in Contamac’s Definitive™ Silicone Hydrogel material.
“For every prescription KeraSoft lens prescribed in North America, Contamac will donate a portion of the Definitive material sales as an unrestricted grant to the National Keratoconus Foundation,” said Dalsing.
Only Bausch + Lomb authorized contact lens laboratories will be eligible to fulfill this special offer.
