PureVision Multi-Focal lenses give your current multifocal wearers remarkable health and satisfaction.
Today’s patients expect long wearing times and white, healthy-looking eyes.
- 54% of lens wearers report needing to wear their lenses longer than 15 hours a day4.
- Nearly half of all patients give “better appearance” as their main reason for trying contacts–but nearly a third of current wearers say their lenses make their eyes red and irritated4.
Even satisfied lens wearers want to know when there’s something better for them.
- 90% of patients are interested in discussing new innovations in contact lenses with you5.
- 80% of patients feel better about their eye care professional once informed about new innovations5.
Designed for Exceptional Health
PureVision Multi-Focal lenses are the only multifocal lenses that give patients the health benefits of AerGel silicone hydrogel material technology:
- The long wearing times your patients’ lives demand.
- Healthy, white eyes.
- Natural level of oxygen transmission to the cornea.
- PureVision contact lenses exhibit overnight corneal swelling equivalent to no lens at all.6
- PureVision Multi-Focal is made of the same AerGel material with the same oxygen transmissibility as PureVision contact lenses.7
Frequency 55 Multi-Focal
Brief summary of intended use: The Bausch + Lomb PureVision, PureVision Toric, and PureVision Multi-Focal (balafilcon A) Visibility Tinted Contact Lenses are indicated for daily wear or extended wear for up to 30 nights between removals.
Warnings: The risk of microbial keratitis has been shown to be greater among users of extended wear contact lenses than among users of daily wear contact lenses. The long-term risk of microbial keratitis has not been determined for this lens. Post-marketing studies are in progress.
Precautions: Some patients will not be able to tolerate continuous wear even if able to tolerate the same or another lens on a daily wear basis. Some patients who are able to tolerate continuous wear will not be able to wear their lenses continuously for 30 nights. Patients should be carefully evaluated for continuous wear prior to prescription and dispensing, and eye care professionals should conduct early and frequent follow-up examination to determine ocular response to continuous wear.
Side effects: During the one-year US study of the PureVision lens (spherical), 2.9% of the 820 eyes that were fit with the PureVision lens in one eye experienced infiltrative keratitis. Other less serious side effects were mild forms of dryness, discomfort, and burning and stinging.
Contraindications: The lens should not be used in the presence of any inflammation, infection, disease or injury in or around the eye or eyelids that interferes with contact lens wear. The lenses should not be used by individuals who have a systemic disease or an allergic condition that might interfere with contact lens wear.

4 Results from the 2005 Gallup study of the contact lens market.
5 Results from a 2005 independent survey of 300 current contact lens wearers conducted by SHC & Associates.
6 Results from a series of overnight corneal swelling clinical studies of adapted daily wear soft lens patients. For these investigations, patients wore conventional hydrogel lenses (Dk/t ranged from 24 to 40), 100% silicone elastomer lenses (Dk/t > 200), PureVision lenses, or no lens. A -3.00D lens was used for the overnight corneal swelling lens comparisons. Corneal swelling measurements were made following closed eye conditions for approximately 8 hours.
7 Adapted daily wear soft lens patients (N=21) wore a PureVision Multi-Focal lens overnight under closed eye conditions for approximately 8 hours. Central and peripheral corneal thickness measurements were taken following 24 hours of no wear to establish a baseline and immediately upon opening the eyes following overnight wear. PureVision lenses were worn in the contralateral eye. (tested @ -3.00D
