DD Multifocal Addresses Pupil Size and Refractive Power
Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. (JJVCI) has launched 1-Day Acuvue Moist Brand Multifocal contact lenses. According to the company, the lens was created with a unique aspheric center-near design for the presbyopic eye, with an Eye-Inspired Design. It matches the optical design to the pupil size for a better visual experience, according to JJVCI. Sixty-one distance powers (+6.00D to –9.00D in 0.25D steps) and three add powers (Low, Mid, and High) offer 183 unique designs. Other parameters include an 8.4mm base curve and 14.3mm diameter.
JJVCI says that the hybrid back curve design helps deliver a superior vision experience because: 1) the spherical periphery helps ensure centration of the optics over the pupil; and 2) the aspheric center closely mimics the natural shape of the cornea to maintain the integrity of the front-surface optics.
The 1-Day Acuvue Moist Brand Multifocal is built on the 1-Day Acuvue Moist platform. It also blocks approximately 82% of UVA rays and 97% of UVB rays. It is available in 30 or 90 lenses per box. Call (800) 874-5278 or visit www.acuvueprofessional.com.
1-DAY ACUVUE MOIST BRAND MULTIFOCAL IS DESIGNED TO ACCOUNT FOR PUPIL SIZE TO HELP IMPROVE VISION FOR PRESBYOPES.
