Vision plays a huge role in the lives of people throughout the world. Basic daily functions become much more difficult if vision is impaired or, even worse, completely gone. While there are those who are blind, there are much higher numbers of those who have impaired vision on varying levels, whether it’s near-sightedness or far-sightedness. Thankfully, throughout history inventors and innovators have looked for and created products that help users see things clearer.
In the United States alone, six out of every ten people wear or need glasses. Whether it’s to see things up close or see things that are far away, the invention of glasses completely changed the world. While before, people had to suffer with blurry vision throughout their entire lives, now children and adults have access to the devices that will help them see clearly, no matter their impairment.
While glasses were a huge step in the right direction when it came to aiding the growing vision problem in the world, many weren’t satisfied with these devices. From glasses came the invention of bifocals, which allowed those who were both near- and far-sighted to see clearly without having to change out their glasses. For a long time, these were the only two options available to those who suffered from not seeing clearly. Until the invention of the contact lens.
Contact lenses changed the way people saw by introducing a more efficient way of getting clear vision. Instead of having to deal with bulky glasses that can scratch, fog, or get dirty, people could pop contact lenses in their eyes and see clearly throughout the day, almost as though their vision was 20/20. And while contact lenses have changed throughout the years, going from hard, glass options to water absorbing, flexible plastic options. However, until recently, the way these lenses were cleaned hadn’t changed.
When contact lenses first came out, they were cleaned with a simple solution that helped them stay hydrated. However, over the years it became clear that this hydrating liquid wasn’t enough to truly disinfect and renew contact lenses. It was because of this deficiency that Opti-Free was created.
Opti-Free is a company that created a line of versatile and varying contact lens care solutions. By offering a wider range of more effective solutions, Opti-Free is able to protect the eye health of users, as well as keep their contacts safer for longer.
Opti-Free is a company that specializes in one thing: Contact Solutions. As mentioned above, until recently, most contact solutions were simple saline solutions. Saline solution was designed to help rinse contact lenses, making them a bit safer to wear again. However, saline solutions did nothing to deep clean and disinfect contact lenses.
Because so many contact solutions weren’t offering users as much support as they needed to truly cleanse their lenses, Opti-Free decided to take a different approach to these products. Instead of just rinsing contact lenses, Opti-Free wanted to invent a solution or system that could deep clean and disinfect contact lenses, making them safer for users to put back in their eyes.
Once Opti-Free had created its first new product, one that could store, rinse, disinfect, and support moisture retention, it started looking in to creating new products.
Over the years, Opti-Free has added to its product line, now offering seven distinct products that all work towards protecting the eyes of its users and keeping their contacts as safe to use as possible. By keeping these two goals as its focus, Opti-Free has quickly become a trusted and beloved name in the contact industry.
