Biotrue ONEday for Presbyopia contact lenses are also the first daily disposable multifocal contact lens from the Biotrue® ONEday family of products, which are designed to work like the eye1,2 by matching the cornea’s water content and mimicking the lipid layer by using a surfactant-enriched lens surface to retain moisture and shape.3,4


“I’ve had excellent results following the simple fitting guide instructions for Biotrue ONEday for Presbyopia contact lenses and I’ve found many of my patients to have great success after the initial lens selection,” said Dr. David Geffen, OD, from the Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute in La Jolla, San Diego, CA. “My patients really appreciate being able to see at all three distances - up close, middle, and far away5 - especially when driving, reading and working at a computer. The lens has been a welcome addition in my practice and I look forward to fitting more of my patients in this excellent lens.”


Eye care practitioners can direct patients to a new consumer-facing website to learn more about Biotrue ONEday and Biotrue ONEday for Presbyopia contact lenses. The website encourages patient’s to visit their eye care practitioner for a contact lens exam where they can be fit into Biotrue ONEday lenses and describes how the lenses work like the eyes1,2 for natural comfort6, outstanding breathability, and the unique High-Definition™ optics, which help to reduce halos and glare.6 The presbyopia section of the website further details the next generation 3-Zone Progressive design and the bio-inspired material of Biotrue ONEday for Presbyopia contact lenses, helping to demonstrate how the lenses provide patients comfortable vision throughout the day, and sharp, exceptional vision at every distance – up close, middle, and far away.5
