NuVision Biotherapies are a tissue-therapies company focused on the application of human amniotic  membrane for ocular disorders. Amniotic membrane is the innermost layer of the placental sac, which protects and holds the foetus during pregnancy.  NuVision upcycles and transforms this waste product of birth into an effective wound care product, called Omnigen. The Tereo manufacturing process, developed at the University of Nottingham’s Academic Ophthalmology department, transforms this waste product of birth into a sterile and stable dry regenerative therapy that can be easily shipped and accessed anywhere in the world. Omnigen is applied directly to the wound dry and is rapidly and effectively rehydrated using surrounding moisture to immediately reactivate the beneficial properties to promote tissue repair and healing in a variety of ways. The product represents a unique and versatile “off-the-shelf” regenerative product, and it may be stored long-term. Omnigen can be applied by OmniLenz using a simple 4 – 6-minute procedure in an outpatient setting. OmniLenz is a specially-modified bandage contact lens designed to apply and hold Omnigen at the ocular surface without the need for sutures or surgery.

Safilens UK Ltd

Safilens is delighted to be taking part in the 2023 BCLA Conference.

Safilens was founded in 2001 with the aim of creating innovative, high-quality products for the contact lens industry. 
An “Optician Only” supplier incorporates an impressive product portfolio centering on the Fusion Presbyo lens which features a smoother surface with natural, quick and constant stabilisation, and benefits from the revolutionary “fusiontechnology™”: the synergistic actions of Hyaluronic Acid and TSP (Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide) normalises and keeps the physiological relation between tear film and ocular surface stable, giving wearers more natural, longer-lasting comfort than ever before.
Fusion Presbyo 1-day is the only disposable contact lens with Afocal design for reducing the effects of presbyopia. The innovative lens design gives an unbeatable depth of focus to the wearer leading to clear images at all distances.

Safilens also launches DELIVERY, a game-changing new family of contact lenses. 
The first product in the family is DELIVERY TYRO, a daily contact lens with biological functions, designed to release tyrosine, an amino acid that helps normalize ocular development.
DELIVERY TYRO lenses not only correct myopia but also favor normalization of the development of the eye. Which explains why this is a contact lens designed especially for young people – because myopia is a refractive impairment that appears in the first few years of life, it aids prevention through the supply of dopamine, a natural substance that influences cell metabolism.

Optimel™ Manuka honey is applied directly to the eye lid margin or palpebral conjunctiva. Tearing and autonomic blinking rapidly displaces the honey drop to the eyelid margin to aid lid hygiene, softening and displacing lid margin residue, typically associated with frequently heavily colonised lid margin dry eye and/or blepharitis cases. Reduces lid margin redness, improves tear quality and reduces eye discomfort.
