Dear Patients

What an amazing start to the year!

Our clinical study is well and truly underway and we are pleased to have signed up the required number of 26 patients. It is very exciting for Ezekiel Eyes because there are seven sites involved in the study – three in Norway, three in Holland and Ezekiel Eyes in Australia. This is an Australian first and we are very proud to be working with our sponsor Alcon Australia in evaluating the new Opti-Free PureMoist Multipurpose Disinfecting Solution.

The unique make-up of Opti-Free PureMoist includes the added ingredient of Hydraglyde that brings with it water to keep the contact lens wet for longer – in fact up to 16 hours wetter.

In late February, I went to Melbourne to co-conuct a two-day workshop for 55 optometrists. One day involved training the optometrists in the new Opti-Free PureMoist and the other day was spent training them on Systane Balance.

Systane Balance is an amazing dry eye drop for patients who have Meibomian Gland Disfunction (MGD). If you have dry eyes then I am more than happy to evaluate your eyes. The important point with dry eyes is the diagnosis. Are your dry eyes due to a deficiency in aqueous (water) component in the tears, or lipid (oil) component in your tears? This diagnosis is easy enough to do, so if you are unsure as to which tear supplement you require please let me diagnose your condition. Systane Balance is now available at our practice.

Opti-Free PureMoist is also available at Ezekiel Eyes right now. There are very few practices stocking Opti-Free PureMoist at the moment as it is so new, so if you want what is best for your soft contact lenses then pop in and purchase a Savings Pack of Opti-Free PureMoist.

If you have any queries about any product or your eyes, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at, or phone (08) 9386 3620 or fax (08) 9389 6124.

We are delighted that we are at the forefront of new products and are able to bring to our patients world-leading solutions and contact lenses.
