SALT LAKE CITY — CooperVision Inc. announced the U.S. launch of Biofinity Multifocal here at Optometry's Meeting, along with introducing a new streamlined fitting approach that makes it easier for eye care practitioners to fit their patients.
Biofinity Multifocal is a monthly replacement contact lens that combines the Biofinity Asphere and Toric lens material with the company's Balanced Progressive Technology.
"One of the most important considerations for us in developing Biofinity Multifocal was listening to eye care professionals," Richard Clompus, OD, vice president, global professional relations at CooperVision, said in a company press release. Collaborating with the practitioners who work directly with lens wearers every day and understanding that every eye is unique was instrumental to the lens' design, he said.
Biofinity Multifocal is currently available in the U.S. and France in sphere powers of +6.00 D to -8.00 D and in four add powers: +1.00 D, +1.50 D, +2.00 D and +2.50. A "D" and "N" lens are available for each add power.
