If you have successful Acuvue Oasys patients who are reaching presbyopic age, now you can offer them a correction in the same lens family, as Johnson & Johnson Vision recently introduced Acuvue Oasys Multifocal in the same material (senofilcon) and also for two-week replacement. The new products uses the pupil optimized design of the 1-Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal, which J&J says allows the lens to be fit independent of pupil size.
The design uses a hybrid back curve: an aspheric center allows the lens to drape across the cornea without creating distortion while a spherical skirt holds the lens in place, J&J explains. Like other Acuvue Oasys lenses, it embeds polyvinylpyrrolidone in the matrix, which mimics the mucins found in tear film to help support a stable tear film, according to the company. J&J calls this wetting agent Hydraclear Plus.
Acuvue Oasys Multifocal is available in sphere powers from -9.00D to +6.00D and three add power ranges: low (+0.75D to +1.25D), mid (+1.50D to +1.75D) and high (+2.00D to +2.50D).
