A natural evolution in multifocal contact lenses

Experts report "virtually every person over the age of 40 will experience some degree of presbyopia.1",2 With 152 million people over the age of 40, and counting,* it’s crucial to focus on presbyopes. Studies show that by 2018, they’ll become the largest single group of potential contact lens wearers.1,2 Many Gen X presbyopes have never known life without contact lenses.

With challenges come opportunities

Responding to the increasing demands of the multifocal segment, VTI set out to design a multifocal contact lens with breakthrough design and performance that would decrease compromises in vision and increase fit success.3,4
