Ciba Vision Aquify (TM)

Aquify TM represents a significant and exciting breakthrough in contact lens disinfection. We all understand the importance of contact lens hydration and that lenses dehydrating on eyes is one of the major causes of contact lens drop out.

  • Ciba claims that the combination of Sorbitol - a humectant that is moisture binding and Dexpanthenol (ProVitamin B5) - moisturing agent creates the HYDROLOCK TM Effect.
  • Ciba also claims that Aquify is preferable 4:1 over Complete, but I have not yet read the data on file and I prefer not to comment on studies that have not been published and peer reviewed.
  • What has convinced me to date that Aquify needs to be my first choice in contact lens disinfection is in fact the Microblock TM antibacterial lens case.
  • It is common knowledge amongst practitioners that the major source of contact lens contamination is the case.

  • Once mentioned to a patient that this is the first solution that incorporates an antibacterial case, it is virtually 100% successful in them switching.
  • To date patients that have switched have found Aquify is comfortable. I have used Aquify with more than 100 patients now and have only encountered one true hypersensitivity reaction.
  • This disinfection solution when sold in the 3 month option has increased our solution sales overnight. Selling solutions does not represent a major portion of our turnover but when presented appropriately has added another $10,000 to our bottom line. We cannot afford to lose this business to chemists. Ciba has initially distributed Aquify through optmetrists.  We now have 12 months to take advantage of this position.
