Contact Lens Invention Now Available at all Wal-Mart Canada Vision Centers

    ST. LOUIS, Feb. 26 /CNW/ -- LensAlert Contact Lens & Case Timers are now
available at all Wal-Mart Canada Vision Centers.

    Wal-Mart is the first national retailer to carry LensAlert products and
joins a growing list of customers around the world. In fact, since early last
year over 800 independent optometrists in 13 countries have chosen to carry
LensAlert as well as online retailers such as and
LensAlert is also sold at 100 Wal-Mart US Vision Centers.

    "We are proud to have the largest retailer in the world offer our
products to their contact lens customers.  We have gone from playing in the
backyard to playing in the big leagues on a world stage in just 13 months.
This is a testament to the quality and value of our products and the
incredibly talented people who work at our company," says LensAlert President
John O'Hara.

    Invented by a patient whose doctor told him that he needed to start
throwing away his lens cases on a scheduled basis, LensAlert includes a
flashing display that notifies users when it's time to change lenses and lens
cases. Remembering to change 14 or 30 day contact lenses on schedule is tough
- over 60% of contact lens wearers don't follow their prescribed schedule. And
replacing the lens case every 30 days is almost impossible. Yes, lens cases
need to be replaced - they are a hotbed for bacteria and fungi, and over 80%
of cases are contaminated!

    Believe it or not, there has never been a timer to keep track. Enter
LensAlert, a simple to use device that is becoming as necessary to contact
lens care as multi-purpose solution. Why is this a breakthrough? Because poor
contact lens care is at an all time high. Wearing lenses too long and not
replacing old lens cases are causing unnecessary, and often serious, eye

    The LensAlert timer allows contact lens wearers to set their own
replacement schedule depending on their doctor's instructions. The digital
display separately tracks lenses & lens case and automatically counts down the
days. When the display flashes "0" it's time for a change. The patented design
easily fits the most popular contact lens cases.
