Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses

3-Zone Progressive Design

3-Zone Progressive Design delivers outstanding near, intermediate, and distance vision1

Patients rate vision clarity in real-world experiences

A lens designed to meet the challenges today’s presbyopes face

When using a digital device, patients may blink 66% less on average,1 which could contribute to dehydration


  • 1 of 3 multifocal contact lens wearers cite dryness as an issue2
  • 1 of 3 Gen Xers and 1 of 4 Baby Boomers spend at least 9 hours per day on digital devices3*

*Gen Xers are people born 1965-1980. Baby Boomers are people born 1946-1964.5

3-Zone Progressive Design

Provides clear near and intermediate vision without compromising distance1


  • 3 of 4 multifocal contact lens wearers state good near and intermediate vision at
    work is a priority4
  • And more than 70% of those wearers report frequent difficulty seeing clearly at
    these distances4

MoistureSeal Technology

Helps maintain 95% of lens moisture for a full 16 hours1

Proprietary, two-phase manufacturing process retains moisture and delivers a highly wettable surface1

Phase 1

  • Combines long- and short-chain monomers to formulate a unique silicone backbone
  • Produces a material that delivers a Dk/t of 163 and modulus of 70

Phase 2

  • PVP grows around and throughout the silicone backbone

Moisture retention in lens core

High volume of PVP at the core provides
excellent moisture retention

High wettability at lens surface

Tightly compact PVP at the
surface delivers high wettability

9 out of 10 patients agree that Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses are as comfortable at the end of the day as they are at the beginning5*

Thirty-nine ECPs (from 10 countries) refitted 441 existing soft contact lens wearing presbyopes into PureVision2 Presbyopia lenses. Patients returned for follow-up visits after 1-2 weeks. ECP assessment of lens performance including ease of fit, and patient satisfaction with lenses in real-world conditions, were measured using a 6-point agreement survey. 7. Results of an online survey with habitual presbyopic contact lens wearers who wore their lenses for approximately 5 days (n=181).
