No 7 launches new scleral lens at sky high event

Fourth generation ICD FlexFit is introduced to No 7 Contact Lenses’ portfolio

No 7 Contact Lenses launches new ICD FlexFit scleral lens at event in the Shard

No 7 Contact Lenses has introduced its new ICD FlexFit scleral lens for irregular corneas during an exclusive launch at London’s tallest building, the Shard. 

The lens was co-designed by Randy Kojima, clinical research and development director at Precision Technology Services in Canada, who presented the lens to practitioners at the event. 

Mr Kojima explained that the lens is designed for patients with keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, post-refractive surgery issues, ocular surface disease and corneal transplants. He highlighted: “This lens gives us control, saves chair time and offers superb vision and longer wearing time. It also creates a more forgiving fit too.” 

No 7 Contact Lenses first introduced the ICD lens into its portfolio in 2009, with the new FlexFit design being the fourth generation of this lens. 

Having tried the new scleral lens during the event at the Shard, independent optometrist Ben Dalton said: “Patients are so grateful if you can fit them with a comfortable lens and there is definitely a place for this in practice.” 

Moorfields optometrist Bronagh Clarke added: “The lens is simple to use – not overly technical – and I know that for any trouble-shooting I can just call No 7.”
