An astounding 32 million Americans (over 10% of the population!) have both presbyopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. Until now, they had very few options for wearing contact lenses which would give them both great vision and comfort. Many would resort to wearing inadequate contact lenses which would correct their distance vision, and putting on reading glasses over those lenses when needed.
This year, Bausch + Lomb has addressed this issue by introducing ULTRA® Multifocal for Astigmatism contact lenses. This brand-new soft contact lens was designed to address the needs of patients who would like an alternative to multifocal glasses, but also have astigmatism. The contact lenses do a great job of correcting those patients’ vision while still giving them maximum comfort. Many patients can wear the lenses all day long.
If you are farsighted and have astigmatism, we want to help you see your best, and look your best. We can fit you for the new Bausch + Lomb ULTRA® Multifocal for Astigmatism contact lenses, supply you with them, and even teach you how to easily apply them.
