Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, announced that Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses are now available in an expanded parameter range. Since the contact lenses first launched in February 2016, Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses have been available in parameters between -7.00D to +2.00D. The expansion now extends the power range available to eye care professionals and patients to +4.50D to -10.00D (in 0.25D steps) in both low add and high add.
"Research shows that many multifocal contact lens wearers struggle with dryness and often experience difficulty with their near and intermediate vision, particularly at work. Many Gen Xers and Baby Boomers also spend at least nine hours a day on digital devices, which creates a significant need for innovative multifocal contact lenses that can meet these visual demands", said Guy Guglielmino, Vice President, Marketing, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb.
Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses, monthly replacement silicone hydrogel lenses, combine the company’s innovative MoistureSeal™ technology, which delivers exceptional end-of-day comfort^1^, with the proven 3-Zone Progressive™ design also found in Biotrue ONEday for Presbyopia daily disposable contact lenses. The combination of these advanced proprietary technologies provides presbyopic patients exceptional comfort and outstanding vision at near, intermediate, and distance^2^.
“The expanded parameters will now allow me to offer the lenses to even more of my presbyopic patients, who are spending a lot of their time using digital devices and struggling with uncomfortable lenses and unclear vision at the distances they need. I have also found the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Presbyopia lenses to be a great option for my spectacle-wearing patients”, said Ben Gaddie.
According to a study with Eye Care Professionals from 10 countries, the 3-Zone Progressive™ design allowed the ECPs to successfully fit 80% of patients in the lens in one visit, and 96% within two visits*^2^. Combining this consistency with the need to only use two add powers and the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia simplified fitting guide, also enables ECPs to streamline the multi-focal fitting process^2^.
Additional parameters are expected later this year. More information about Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® for Presbyopia contact lenses is available at www.ultracontactlenses.co.uk.
