Features

  • With the pH level of tears, Hy-Care is the multipurpose disinfecting solution that's gentle on your patients' eyes.
  • Contains hyaluronan, a naturally-occurring lubricant found in the eye.1

  • Effective disinfection whilst being gentle on the eye.2

  • Designed to mimic the pH of tears (pH6.8–7.2).3

  • Poloxamer surfactant [and rub and rinse step] helps to ensure effective protein and lipid removal from soft contact lenses, including silicone hydrogels.4

  • Exceeds ISO primary criteria for log reduction of both bacteria and fungi.5
