What Is MoistureSeal Technology?


MoistureSeal™ Technology is a proprietary technology developed by Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company. It was introduced in 2014 and implemented in the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA product family.

MoistureSeal Technology helps the lens maintain 95 percent of its moisture for a full 16 hours, making for a comfortable contact lens-wearing experience. It was made through a unique process that grows polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) — a wetting agent used in contact lenses and eye drops to increase wettability and moisture retention. As a result of the unique PVP growing process, Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contacts reportedly have four times more PVP than other silicone hydrogel contacts.

All things considered, MoistureSeal Technology allows Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contacts to achieve a high overall and end-of-day comfort.

What is contact lens discomfort?

Discomfort is one of the most common problems for contact lens wearers. Contact lens discomfort can occur for various reasons, including allergies, debris on the lens, and poor fit.

You may also experience discomfort from simply wearing your contact lenses for too long, even if they’re indicated for overnight or extended wear. This is caused by the loss of moisture that all contact lenses experience throughout the day.

A loss of moisture is addressed with Bausch + Lomb’s MoistureSeal Technology. The average soft contact lens can stay moist and comfortable for 12 to 14 hours, but MoistureSeal Technology takes that further by keeping the lens moist and comfortable for a full 16 hours.

Contact Lenses With MoistureSeal Technology

MoistureSeal Technology is unique to Bausch + Lomb’s ULTRA portfolio, which includes spherical, multifocal, and toric contact lenses.
