Updated: Jul 30, 2023


Bausch + Lomb INFUSE contact lens

Are you seeking a daily disposable contact lens that provides exceptional comfort and clear vision throughout the day? Look no further than Bausch + Lomb's INFUSE contact lens.


With its innovative ProBalance Technology and next-generation silicone hydrogel material, INFUSE offers a superior experience for contact lens wearers, ensuring optimal ocular surface homeostasis.


In this blog post, I'll dive into the unique features of INFUSE and highlight why it has become a top choice for those looking for the perfect combination of comfort, clarity, and affordability.


Infused with ProBalance Technology

Released in the United States in 2020, INFUSE contact lens stands out from the competition due to Bausch + Lomb's meticulous design process. Leveraging insights from the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society DEWS II report, the company developed ProBalance Technology, which incorporates select ingredients into the lens.


This proprietary technology includes osmoprotectants (erythritol and glycerin) and electrolytes (potassium) to maintain the balance of the ocular surface, promoting eye health.


Additionally, INFUSE features moisturizers (poloxamine 1107 and poloxamer 181) that retain hydration and provide a smooth, wettable lens surface.


A next-generation silicone hydrogel material

What sets INFUSE apart is its innovative lens material, kalifilcon A, which surpasses other daily lenses on the market.


This next-generation material offers several advantages, including a high water content for improved comfort, a low modulus to reduce the lens's impact on the front of the eye, and high oxygen transmissibility to keep the eyes healthy and white.


By incorporating these features, INFUSE ensures a comfortable and breathable experience for wearers throughout the day.


Powers, availability, and more

INFUSE contact lenses are designed to accommodate a wide range of wearers with a single base curve and width. With a comprehensive range of powers spanning from -12.00 to +6.00, INFUSE caters to various vision needs.


The lenses are also enhanced with a gentle light blue tint, facilitating easy insertion and removal. When fit with Bausch + Lomb's INFUSE contact lenses, a trial box containing 10 lenses per eye will be provided.


It's important to note that INFUSE lenses are intended for daily wear and should be disposed of at the end of each day. They are not approved for overnight use.


Bausch + Lomb INFUSE Multifocal contact lens

Is there an INFUSE contact lens for astigmatism or presbyopia?

While INFUSE contact lenses are not available for astigmatism at the moment, Bausch + Lomb has plans to launch INFUSE for Astigmatism in 2024.


However, individuals with presbyopia can benefit from INFUSE Multifocal, which features a center near, 3 Zone Progressive design for seamless vision at distance, intermediate, and near. This makes INFUSE Multifocal an excellent choice for wearers experiencing presbyopia.
