Ciba Vision’s new Air Optix Aqua Multifocal is now available in the US. The lens is the latest in Ciba’s AirOptix line, and joins Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia and Purevision Multifocal in the bifocal-multifocal silicone hydrogel category.
While most of the new multifocals are made from one form of silicone hydrogel or another, there remains a significant minority of the contact lens wearing public that cannot adapt to wearing a lens made from silicone hydrogel. For these patients, in addition to the older multifocals, Cooper has the Proclear Multifocal which is well-regarded by doctors, and has been gaining market share.
