Seattle-Bausch + Lomb introduced PureVision2 Multi-Focal (balafilcon A) monthly silicone hydrogel multifocal contact lenses at the American Academy of Optometry meeting. Featuring a next-generation 3-zone progressive design, these lenses are designed to improve near and intermediate vision while providing excellent distance clarity.

The lens design allows for a more predictable, quick fit for the eyecare professional. According to the company, PureVision2 Multi-Focal helped maintain clear near, intermediate, and distance vision in real-world conditions.

The lenses are approved for extended wear up to 30 days in powers ranging from +6.00 D to –10.00 D in 0.25 D steps. Low add power helps patients needing 0.75 D to 1.50 D of near power, while the high add power addresses needs of 1.75 D to 2.50 D. Base curve is 8.6 mm, and diameter is 14.0 mm.

“We know that consistent, crisp, clear vision at all distances can be a challenge for people with presbyopia. These new lenses will provide that consistency whether viewing a screen on your mobile phone or a screen at the cinema,” said Joseph Barr, OD, MS, vice president, Medical Affairs, Pharmaceuticals, Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “We’re optimistic that the combination of a streamlined fit and a satisfied patient will make this lens a favorite for the eyecare professional.”
