ATLANTA — Visioneering Technologies Inc.’s NaturalVue Enhanced Multifocal contact lenses are now available in Canada.
The lenses feature the TripleTear Lubrication System and a new Ultra-Tapered Edge for a variety of patient types. The TripleTear Lubrication System utilizes three comfort agents, including hyaluronic acid, that work together to provide hydration and lubrication, lock in moisture, and maintain a clean surface to stabilize tears. The new Ultra-Tapered Edge is designed for optimal fit and comfort and to promote uninterrupted tear film. Additionally, the lens has a Class 2 UV blocker for an added layer of protection.*
The NaturalVue Enhanced Multifocal deploys a unique and patented center-distance aspheric extended depth of focus design. For myopes, the Neurofocus Optics technology induces peripheral myopia,1,2 which addresses one of the known risk factors for axial lengthening, without compromising vision.3 For presbyopes, the lens provides spectacle level visual acuity at near, intermediate, and far distances.3
A recently conducted clinical study with 53 patients confirmed vision, comfort, and handling advantages, including:
- The TripleTear lubrication system maintains moisture and enhances wear, delivering instant comfort that lasts all day.4
- 9/10 wearers agreed their eyes felt “clean” and “comfortable.”4
- Highest wettability at insertion vs. other lenses tested.5
- Wearers experienced significantly better stereoacuity** than leading lenses tested.4
- Visual acuity equal to spectacles, within two letters of best-corrected spectacle vision.3
- 92% of daily activities can be completed without glasses.
- Seamless transition to the new lens as no refit is required for current wearers.
The NaturalVue Enhanced Multifocal 1 Day Contact Lenses are indicated for the correction of refractive ametropia (myopia and hyperopia), and/or presbyopia, and myopia progression control. Lenses are available across a full power range: +4.00D to –12.25D in 0.25D steps.
*UV-absorbing contact lenses aren’t substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear — for example, protective UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses — because they don’t completely cover the eye and surrounding area. Patients should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed.
