The SpecialEyes 54 Multifocal is revolutionizing the way practitioners address the visual needs of their presbyopic patients. With a range of customizable zone sizes tailored specifically for your patients’ acuity needs this toric multifocal contact lens is changing the conversation about the success of hard-to-fit contact lens patients in multifocal prescriptions. Whether you have experience with our custom 54 Toric Multifocal contact lens or you are just waiting for the right patient to walk into your practice, we want to help you identify the ideal candidate.
The most suitable patient is someone who has never worn a multifocal contact lens before, you may wonder why this is the case? The answer is simple; patients who have no prior encounters with a multifocal contact lens are more likely to be receptive to the experience, which may require lens adjustments and a period of visual adaptation.
Other indications for optimal candidates include:
I. Patients with presbyopia and a need for both near and intermediate correction.
II. Myopic, hyperopic and astigmatic presbyopes with a need for multifocal correction.
III. Presbyopic patients who have experienced fit or visual dissatisfaction in stock multifocal contact lenses.
IV. Presbyopic patients who present with steep, flat, large or small corneas and have experienced problems with visual acuity, fit, or centration in stock multifocal contact lenses.
The broad parameter range of the SpecialEyes 54 Toric Multifocal contact lens allows practitioners to offer their astigmatic presbyopes a lens that can be customized for their eye-shape while accommodating virtually any cylinder or add power. The additional option to customize both multifocal zone sizes and add powers in the lens allow doctors to reach well beyond the range in fit and power of stock multifocals which, in turn, increases the number of successful multifocal and toric multifocal contact lens fits in their practice.
