This paper, “Case Series Analysis of Myopic Progression Control With a Unique Extended Depth of Focus Multifocal Contact Lens,” was published in Eye & Contact Lens in late 2017 by Cooper, et al. This paper demonstrated that the NaturalVue® (etafilcon A) Multifocal 1 Day Contact Lenses are effective in slowing myopic progression with respect to refractive error. The data represented a reduction in the annualized rate of myopic progression in over 98% of children, and an overall 81% demonstrated a complete halting of the progression of myopia. This paper helps lead us to clinical decisions, as this retrospective data was collected from real world clinical practices with patients presenting as you would see them in yours.
SpecialEyes, LLC has pioneered a new advancement in custom soft multifocal contact lenses with the introduction of OptiSync™ Technology. This customization feature makes it possible to correct a misalignment between the multifocal optics and the patient’s visual axis. When these are not properly aligned, it can cause poor visual acuity, induced aberrations, and subjective complaints of glare, shadows, 3-D effects, and halos. But how do you know if your patient’s multifocal optics are misaligned? This guide covers techniques for predicting/identifying a potential misalignment issue so you’ll know when to utilize this new technology.
