Johnson & Johnson Vision (NYSE:JNJ) announced that it launched the Acuvue Oasys multifocal contact lenses with a pupil-optimized design.
The new lens, available in the U.S. and in Canada, expands on the Acuvue Oasys portfolio to offer a new eye care option for patients with presbyopia, according to a news release.
Acuvue Oasys multifocal lenses offer pupil-optimized technology, used in the 1-day Acuvue moist multifocal and designed for crisp, clear, reliable vision at all distances to enable those with presbyopia to see distant, intermediate and near objects.
The technology also includes what J&J touts as “hybrid back curve” technology, along with a proprietary embedded wetting agent, which altogether is aimed at creating a lens designed for both performance and comfort.
“This Acuvue Oasys multifocal contact lens brings a long-awaited solution to patients with presbyopia who have been looking for continuous, clear and comfortable vision at all distances,” J&J Vision global head of R&D Dr. Xiao-Yu Song said in the release.
