CooperVision Australia and New Zealand has unveiled its highly-anticipated Biofinity toric multifocal contact lens this week, providing more than 200,000 prescription options for patients who are both astigmatic and presbyopic.
The company’s professional services manager Mr Joe Tanner said this latest addition to the product portfolio combines the performance and designs of CooperVision’s Biofinity toric and Biofinity multifocal lenses.
It will be available to Australian and New Zealand eyecare professionals from 7 July.
“Optometrists now have an easy-to-fit lens, using familiar lens design technologies and the proven Biofinity silicone hydrogel material,” Tanner said.
“Being able to reliably correct astigmatism means there is no need to compromise visual acuity and we encourage practitioners to use this lens whenever 0.75D or more of astigmatism is present. Furthermore, Biofinity toric multifocal is fully moulded which confers excellent reproducibility.”
The lens is made to order with a normal lead time of 10 to 15 working days.
