Question

when will ACUVUE Bifocals be available with the new material used in ACUVUE Oasys?

I tried Oasys for Presbyopia, and the new material is stellar. The thicker lenses are easier to handle, and more comfortable at the same time. But visual accuity simply did not work with the aspheric system. Therefore I love my old-school concentric ACUVUE bifocals, but love the new Hydroclear Plus material. When will I get the best of both worlds?

Question

Are Acuvue Bifocal for Astigmatism lenses available anywhere on line or must I obtain these through my eye doctor?

I am trying these out for now, but I would prefer to get them on-line. However, I cannot find any website that offers these lenses. Is there another option?

Question

Are the Acuvue Bifocal Lens being discontinued?

I had an exam in September and finally got the trial Oaysis lens and they feel great, my distance vision is wonderful but I can't read with them. The Dr. tried a different prescription in my right eye and I still can not read - everything is blurry. He is now saying that I may have to stay with the bifocal lens but originally he said they were being phased out and I don't want to get stuck with something that I can no longer order. Any suggestions?

What is the difference between Acuvue Bifocal lenses and Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia lenses?

There are several differences between these lenses. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for Presbyopia are the next generation of multifocal contacts for people with presbyopia (a condition where the eye loses the ability to focus up close, typically occurring after age 40). This lens features the optical design of STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY™ and the exceptional comfort of HYDRACLEAR® Plus. The result is balanced vision near, far and in-between, across variable lighting conditions, along with remarkable comfort – even in challenging environments that can make your eyes feel tired and dry. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand for Presbyopia combines HYDRACLEAR® Plus technology and a high-performance silicone hydrogel, into a state-of-the-art formulation. ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand for Presbyopia also allows for greater breathability, wettability, smoothness, and UV blocking than ACUVUE® Brand Bifocal.

We sure do. Your doctor will be the best person to determine the right lens for you, but for minor amounts of astigmatism ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA [http://acuvue.com/products-acuvue-o...] can be a good choice. With moderate to significant astigmatism a monovision correction with ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for ASTIGMATISM may be a better solution. Let your doctor know you are interested in contact lenses, and ask for a recommendation on which lens type is right for you.

Question

Multifocal contacts for astigmatism?

I currently wear Acuvue Bifocals. My opthalmologist says I have a slight astigmatism but not enough to warrant giving up bifocal contacts. Will Oasys for Presbyopia lenses be available with astigmatism correction in the future?

Also, right now, are Oasys for Presbyopia lenses available in the New York City area?
