Based on 98 hours of video footage and more than 1,200 data entries of current monovision contact lens, multifocal contact lens, and reading spectacles wearers, the analysis suggests that lifestyle and emotional connections to vision have a significant impact on the success of a presbyopia management plan. The authors recommend eye care professionals consider obtaining more patient input on those dimensions, with an empathetic approach offering the best opportunities to match individuals with correction types.
CooperVision MyDay® daily disposable multifocal contact lenses are an expansion of the popular premium silicone hydrogel 1-day family. Leveraging the company’s deep expertise in optical design and prescribing practices, the new lenses are the first to feature the Binocular Progressive System™, an innovative 3 add approach that caters to all levels of presbyopia with simplified fitting2, optimal visual acuity at all distances, and comfortable wear for exceptional performance.
“Spherical contact lens wearers live active, on-the-go lifestyles, but as they look to continue contact lens wear with their presbyopia3, they’re typically unable to experience the same clear vision. As a result, they often turn to reading glasses over their contact lenses or drop out of the category entirely. With so many factors to consider, presbyopes need a contact lens that checks all the boxes: excellent vision, comfort, and ocular health4,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Vice President of Professional and Government Affairs, CooperVision.
“MyDay® multifocals are ideal for all contact lens wearers with presbyopia5. It’s an inventive product that will help eye care professionals in most every practice setting, and we are enthusiastic about its potential to help grow the multifocal category.”
