How to Remove Protein Deposits from Contact Lenses Efficiently?

How to Remove Protein Deposits from Contact Lenses Efficiently?

Researchers have captured one of the weaknesses of proteins: they are negatively charged under certain circumstances, which will surge toward the anode in an electric field. By applying this「electrophoresis and electrolysis」technique in the scenario of contact lens cleaning, the effect of protein removal can be achieved: the tear proteins attached to the surface and inside of the lens are detached from the lens under the action of the electric field.

With such thoughtful technology, we do not need to be demanding our own handiness and self-discipline to reap the fruits of better protein removal efficiency. 

For those who have been plagued by long-cycle contact lens cleaning problems, please give a try to this high-tech product that specializes in removing tear proteins -- ReO2 Contact Lens Cleaner.

It possesses over 100 patents while being approved by the FDA 510K, which not only removes tear proteins in an efficient and convenient manner for us, restores the oxygen permeability of the lenses, and reduces the chance of discomfort but also delivers a safer and more comfortable contact lens wearing experience for our eyes.

With Elepy technology as the core of electrophoretic dissociation

Tear protein removal rate up to 94.70%

The innovative technology of ReO2 Contact Lens Cleaner -- the Elepy technology, is capable of clearing out the tear proteins from the voids of the internal structure of the lens, followed by utilizing the principle of hypochlorite production by electrolysis of sodium chloride solution (contained in all multifunctional care solutions) to further degrade the tear proteins, thereby achieving the purpose of cleaning the lens.

What is its protein removal capability? The data can demonstrate: under the experimental conditions, the tear protein removal rate can be as high as 94.70%* with ReO2 Contact Lens Cleaner and Multifunctional Care Solution.

*Note: The third-party testing institution designed the experiment in accordance with the Cleaning and Protein Removal Effectiveness Test Protocol 3N-TP-01 while calculating the protein content on the lenses before and after cleaning by means of protein absorbance at a wavelength of 280 nm with an ultra-micro-UV spectrophotometer.

99.999%* sterilization

Effectively minimize the growth of germs

The impurities on our contact lenses are not only tear proteins but also germs and other impurities. When wearing contact lenses for a prolonged period of time, the cornea may suffer from a lack of oxygen, at which point an infection may occur if germs are not coincidentally present.

The germs on the lenses are typically Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In accordance with the test report, it demonstrates that the sterilization rate of these four common germs can reach 99.999%* under experimental conditions. Such excellent sterilization capability is available to assist in protecting the eyes from the harm of germ infection.
