  • Patent number: 5362488
    Abstract: A buffered skin cream containing a linear polydimethylsiloxane polymer, a non-ionic emulsifier, aloe vera, mineral oil, sodium citrate, citric acid, a blend of propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methyl paraben and propyl paraben, and water. The buffering capacity of the cream is provided through the incorporation of citric acid and sodium citrate in the composition. The buffering system results in the cream having a preferred pH in the range of about 4.5 to 6.0, and most preferably a pH of about 5.2 which neutralizes acidic and basic by-products of urine and fecal matter.

  • Patent number: 5101967
    Abstract: A contact lens storage chamber has a lens retaining member disposed therein with baskets for containing the lenses disposed in a vertically juxtaposed manner. The lens retaining member has a stopper portion which is located in an opening at the top of the chamber and is retained in place by a loose tongue-in-groove structure which facilitates the escape of vapors from the chamber during a lens cleaning and disinfecting procedure.

  • Patent number: 4900366
    Abstract: A composition is disclosed useful for cleaning hard and soft contact lenses, in which cleansing action is provided by a relatively soft abradant particulate sparingly soluble room temperature solid organic acid or inorganic salt, preferably in combination with one or more surfactants. The particulate material effectively removes deposits from the lens, and readily dissolves on the application of water.

  • Patent number: 4568517
    Abstract: A contact lens is disinfected in an aqueous H.sub.2 O.sub.2 solution. The H.sub.2 O.sub.2 solution is neutralized and transformed in situ into a buffered, saline storage solution by adding a neutralizer such as sodium sulfite or sodium thiosulfate, and optional buffering agents. The neutralizer has a coating which dissolves to release the ingredients only a period of time after it is added, so that it can be put into the H.sub.2 O.sub.2 solution at the same time that the lens is.

  • Patent number: 4126587
    Abstract: Method and compositions are provided for the effective cleaning of soft and silicone contact lenses by soaking the lenses for a time sufficient to remove adherent residues in a solution containing an epoxy modified silicone surfactant and a fatty acid amide (or nitrogen analog thereof) surfactant, which may be cationic or non-ionic. Other additives may also be included such as thickening agents, bactericides, salts, anionic surfactants, and the like. The compositions are found to be particularly effective in removing strongly adhering proteinaceous matter, as well as lipids and polysaccharides.By employing a particular combination of surfactants, soft contact lenses can be freed of impurities and adhering matter introduced during manufacture of the lens, while the lens is being hydrated. The lens is soaked under moderate conditions in an aqueous saline bath with a combination of a zwitterion surfactant and a fatty acid amide surfactant.
