With Proclear Multifocal Toric lenses, CooperVision have come up with a world first with the introduction of at monthly disposable contact lens that corrects two eye conditions: presbyopia and astigmatism. Many people are even unaware that these can be corrected successfully using contacts, especially presbyopia. The term presbyopia may sound strange but this is in fact a common condition that just means you are getting older. If you struggle to read small print or have trouble focusing on things close up, this is a sign that you have presbyopia. Astigmatism is blurriness as a result of the fact that light is not reflected correctly onto the retina because the cornea is slightly misshapen.
The advanced design behind Proclear Multifocal Toric contact lenses is called Balanced Progressive Technology. In order to deliver clear vision both near and far, the lenses work together but have a different design. Both have concentric zones of vision correction but one eye is the dominant eye and the other is the non-dominant eye. The central zone of the dominant eye is corrected for distance vision and conversely the central zone of the non-dominant eye for near vision.
As contact lens wearers typically wear their contacts for anything up to 15 hours a day, comfort is a major factor in addition to sharp vision. Proclear Multifocal Toric lenses are made using CooperVision’s own PC Technology, which creates a protective cushion of moisture on the lens through its unique structure that actually attracts water molecules. Toric lenses need to be stable as well as comfy and these lenses have yet another advanced feature called ‘inverse prism ballast’ that provides the stability necessary for clear vision.
Proclear Multifocal Toric lenses are designed for daily wear and to be replaced on a monthly basis. They are made from omafilcon A, have a water content of 59% and come in packs of three.
