Bausch + Lomb has just launched what they are calling their most advanced soft contact lens design – Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® Multifocal for Astigmatism contact lenses. This is the first and only multifocal toric lens readily available for same-day fittings in practices, conveniently meeting the needs of your patients with astigmatism and presbyopia. By bringing together two of our contact lens innovations, the proven
3-Zone Progressive™ design and OpticAlign® design, ECPs can offer patients a lens that provides clear vision at all distances with a straightforward fitting process.
There are an estimated 32 million people in the U.S. who are living with both astigmatism and presbyopia. When considering the current vision correction options that exist for these patients today and the limitations they have, we recognized this was an area of major need. The introduction of this new lens as a standard offering reflects our collaboration with a large cross-functional team of experts – scientists, lens designers, marketers, and clinicians – to fulfill this unmet need and provide an innovative option that meets the lifestyles and desires of these patients today.
Bausch + Lomb believes that this new lens will enhance the fitting and wearing experience for patients, allowing ECPs to provide this previously underserved patient population a readily-available option.
