HONG KONG -- Bausch + Lomb today announced that it is reinvigorating its multi-purpose solution portfolio to provide a clearer choice for Asian consumers to choose their renu® formulation conveniently. The reinvigoration includes launching renu sensitive™ multi-purpose solution in five more Asian markets and a revitalization of the product packaging for both renu fresh™ and renu sensitive solutions to give the brand a fresher and more contemporary look. The five markets where renu sensitive will be available include Malaysia, Hong Kong, Australia, India and Singapore.

renu fresh multi-purpose solution provides fresh lens comfort all day long with exceptional disinfection and effective removal of protein deposits for soft contact lenses. It also works to condition the surface of contact lenses to retain moisture and provide fresh lens comfort all day long.

renu sensitive multi-purpose solution is a gentle formula for sensitive eyes. According to Bausch + Lomb’s consumer research1, nearly half of lens users experience sensitive eyes and related symptoms such as red eyes and itchy eyes.

renu fresh and renu sensitive are specially formulated to gently draw tears to lenses to create a cushion of moisture between the contact lens and the eye. Both solutions in the new packaging will soon be available in Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Australia, India, Singapore, mainland China2 and Korea.

"Bausch + Lomb’s portfolio of multi-purpose solutions offers clearer product choice to contact lens wearers who have specific lens care needs," said David Edwards, corporate vice president and president, Bausch + Lomb Asia Pacific. "By understanding our consumers better, we can offer products which are more attuned to the needs of specific groups of contact lens wearers."

As part of the new packaging, Bausch + Lomb also introduced a clear bottle design for renu fresh which allows users to clearly see exactly how much solution is remaining and appreciate the purity of the solution from outside. The bottle uses PET, a recyclable plastic material that provides consumers with an environmentally friendly choice.
