A New Solution for a Growing Issue: ACUVUE® Introduces Innovative Multifocal Lens for Presbyopia
You know the vision changes presbyopia brings, but do your patients understand what they’re experiencing? While you know multifocal contact lenses are a great vision-correcting option, patients have low awareness of the condition of presbyopia and even lower knowledge of their options. They don’t know to ask you about those options, and the impact is real: over 50% of wearers over the age of 45 will discontinue use of contact lenses within the first year of wear as they develop presbyopia!1
Performance and comfort with a quick and easy fit is now within reach with new ACUVUE® OASYS MULTIFOCAL with PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN. This 2-week reusable contact lens combines three unique technologies designed to deliver crisp, clear, reliable vision. Pupil Optimized Design is the ONLY technology that uniquely optimizes the optical design to the pupil size according to age AND refractive power, making the optics the right size.2 The hybrid back curve design includes an aspheric center to keep the complex front-surface optics in the right shape, and a spherical periphery to keep optics in the right place.3 Plus, patients get all the comfort you’d expect from the ACUVUE® OASYS Brand family, which has never been beaten in comfort across 25 clinical studies.*
When patients struggle with ocular discomfort and need multifocal correction, we rely on ACUVUE® technology… the material really makes a difference.
And now, Pupil Optimized Technology is available on both the #1 selling daily disposable and reusable contact lens brands in the world – 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST and ACUVUE® OASYS 2-Week – with the same simple fit process across both brands.†‡ Just use the ACUVUE® MULTIFOCAL Fit Guide to achieve over a 94% success rate in two pairs of lenses of less!§4,5
We want success early in fitting multifocal lenses and we see the swiftest and best success with ACUVUE® products and their tools, such as the multifocal fit guide and digital fit calculator,≠ which lets us find what works for the patient quicker.
Using the calculator for a quick and easy fit and having the option of daily disposable or reusable modalities enables providers to prescribe according to the patient’s needs. Now, you can fit the multifocal lens to the patient, since 100% of parameters are tailored to pupil size variations across age and refraction vs. <2% for the leading competitor.**2
It’s easier to have those conversations when I have a lens that my OASYS 2-Week patients can more easily graduate into. This is a better option for my price-sensitive patients that should satisfy the majority of their vision-correction needs long-term.
