Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses

Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia:

Exceptional comfort unites with a proven multifocal design

MoistureSeal technology
Exceptional end-of-day comfort2

3-Zone Progressive Design
Outstanding vision: near, intermediate, and distance2
Easy, predictable fitting2

MoistureSeal technology

Results in an exceptional combination of oxygen transmissibility (Dk/t), modulus, and water content4

Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses maintain 95% of their moisture for a full 16 hours4

A uniquely formulated silicone backbone

Proprietary combination of long and short-chain silicone monomers

  • Creates a flexible silicone matrix that results in unsurpassed oxygen transmissibility, low modulus, and structural integrity for great lens handling

Integrates polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)—a water-loving polymer

PVP chains connect end-to-end and interweave within and around the silicone backbone

  • Creates a hydrophilic surface with high wettability—without the need for a surface plasma treatment
Among the leading silicone hydrogel lenses

Excellent Material Properties

3-Zone Progressive Design

Delivers outstanding near, intermediate, and distance vision

Clarity through consistency2:

  • Areas of consistent power in the near, intermediate, and distance zones deliver an outstanding visual experience
  • Seamless transitions between 3 zones provide easy adaptation between key distances

THE RESULT: A lens designed to achieve outstanding near, intermediate, and distance vision with clear, seamless transitions in the real world

3-Zone Progressive Design: designed for a successful first fit

Simplified Fitting Guide

Step 1: Update spectacle refraction and Add power

Step 2: Select contact lens distance prescription based upon spherical equivalent from spectacle Rx and following Add guidance (adjusted for vertex distance if necessary)

 Add Selection:
 +.075D to +1.50D  Low Add
 +1.75D to +2.50D  High Add

Evaluate the Lens for Success

  • Allow trial lenses to equilibrate for at least 10 minutes before assessing fit and vision
  • Evaluate distance and near vision binocularly in normal room illumination
  • If vision at distance and near are satisfactory, dispense lenses and schedule follow-up exam within 1–2 weeks

Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses: Additional information

**When the ECP followed the fitting guide for the 3-Zone Progressive Design utilized on the PureVision2 for Presbyopia contact lens.
1. Results of an online survey with patients that wore their lenses for 7+ days and on average, wore their lenses for 8 or more hours a day (n=485). Survey questions were top 3-box scores (% Strongly Agree, Agree, Slightly Agree) on a 6-point agreement scale, with a margin of error +/- 2.4%.
2. Data on file. Bausch & Lomb Incorporated. Rochester, NY; 2015.
3. 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.
