*New* Ultra Multifocal for Astigmatism
This lens provides a seamless shift from distance through to near vision for people with astigmatism. It combines the stability of Ultra for Astigmatism with the vision consistency of Ultra for Presbyopia. For people over 40, previously those with astigmatism either had to use readers over their contacts, or use monovision to be able to see distances both near and far. Now multifocal toric contact lenses are available from Bausch and Lomb in the Ultra design.
Here we will provide an overview of the contact lens brands that Bausch and Lomb carry and are available in Canada.
Ultra - Bausch and Lomb's most recent monthly replacement lens is called Ultra. It is a silicone hydrogel lens with "moisture seal" technology. This means that the contact lens maintains its moisture with little loss for up to 16 hours. This lens is made for people who are frequently using digital devices for long hours, and experience end of day discomfort with their current contact lenses.
Ultra is now available in lenses for presbyopia and astigmatism, the usual sphere, and now also available in a multifocal for astigmatism.
Biotrue - "One day lenses inspired by the biology of your eyes". This is the newest daily disposable contact lens from Bausch & Lomb. It has a UV filter, and is made of 78% water for good breathability. Many people find this lens more comfortable than the Softlens daily.
Biotrue One Day for Presbyopia - Biotrue one day lenses are now available in a multifocal for those who wear bifocals.
Biotrue One Day for Astigmatism - Biotrue one day lenses are now available in a toric version for those who have astigmatism.
Optima 38 SP - A daily wear lens that is packaged in a blister pack, and boxed with two lenses per box. Lenses are recommended to last 3 to 6 months per pair, although some people wear them as a yearly lens. Since most people need different strengths in each eye, the idea is that two boxes will give you a pair plus a "spare pair" (SP).
PureVision - A monthly replacement lens made from silicone hydrogel. Breathes better and more moist than a standard yearly lens. Approved for overnight wear. Available in two base curves.
PureVision Multifocal - A monthly replacement lens, silicone hydrogel, that is designed for distance and near vision, for those who need a bifocal. Very breathable, moist, and approved for overnight wear.
PureVision Toric - A monthly replacement lens, silicone hydrogel, for those with astigmatism in their prescription. Again, breathable, moist, and approved for overnight wear.
PureVision2 HD - A new and improved PureVision lens with better optics. Only available in one base curve at this time.
PureVision2 HD for Astigmatism - New and improved from the original PureVision Toric. Base curve is slightly flatter.
PureVision2 HD for Presbyopia - The new and improved PureVision2 lens is now available for those who are presbyopic, or who need bifocals.
Soflens 38 - A monthly replacement disposable lens. Made from 38% water.
Soflens 59 - A two week replacement disposable lens. Made from 59% water.
Soflens Daily Disposable - A truly disposable lens made for one day use only. Great for travelling and those with allergies.
Soflens Daily Disposable for Astigmatism - Same as above but for those with astigmatism in their prescription.
Soflens Multifocal - a monthly replacement lens made from conventional materials, for those who need a bifocal.
