In July this year, CooperVision Australia and New Zealand added a toric multifocal to its extensive family of Biofinity contact lenses.
The new design helps eyecare professionals address the demands of more patients, providing more than 200,000 unique prescription options for patients who are both astigmatic and presbyopic.
According to the company, existing and emerging presbyopes represent a major practice growth opportunity – and a significant proportion of them have astigmatism.
“Optometrists now have an easy-to-fit lens, using familiar lens design technologies and the proven Biofinity silicone hydrogel material, helping them address the vision and lifestyle needs of more presbyopes,” the company stated.
The Biofinity toric multifocal is made to order with a normal lead time of 10 to 15 working days.
