DTCL announces daily wear option for the irregular cornea

Rose K2 Soft CL launched in the UK
Menicon’s UK subsidiary, David Thomas Contact Lenses (DTCL), has announced the availability of the Rose K2 Soft contact lens design for the irregular cornea.  

The new Rose K2 Soft design is a daily wear, soft lens for irregular corneas. It is available as a three-month replacement lens when manufactured from silicone hydrogel materials, and a six-month or 12-month replacement lens, when manufactured from hydrogel materials.  
The primary indications for prescribing the new lens are intolerance to gas permeable lenses, new contact lens wearers with irregular corneas, early to moderate irregular corneas, or conditions where the environment may be unsuitable for gas permeable wear, or where a gas permeable lens may be unstable, such as participating in sports.

The new Rose K2 Soft uses the same simple, five-step fitting method common to all Rose K designs. It features an aspheric back optic zone, front surface toricity and front surface aberration control for optimal visual acuity. 

Additionally, the new lens offers precise edge lift control, prism ballast stabilisation and reverse geometry to aid contact lens fitting.

Designer of the new Rose K2 Soft lens and inventor of the Rose K range of lens designs, Dr Paul Rose, said: “I wanted to add a soft option to the Rose K toolkit that followed the same simple fitting method as the rest of the Rose K designs. After many years of development and clinical trials, I’m satisfied that we’ve succeeded. I’m very pleased to be bringing Rose K2 Soft to the UK market.”
