3 Add System Provides Optimal Vision At All Distances, For All Levels Of Presbyopia

SYDNEY, NSW., July 19, 2021—CooperVision today introduced MyDay® multifocal contact lenses, expanding its popular premium silicone hydrogel 1-day family. Using the company’s deep expertise in optical design and prescribing practices, the new lenses are the first to feature the Binocular Progressive System, an innovative 3 add approach that caters to all levels of presbyopia with simplified fitting, optimal visual acuity at all distances and comfortable wear for exceptional performance.

“Single-vision contact lens wearers live active, on-the-go lifestyles, but as they become presbyopic, they’re typically unable to experience the same clear vision. As a result, they often turn to reading glasses over their contact lenses or drop out of the category entirely. With so many factors to consider, presbyopes need a contact lens that provides excellent vision, comfort, and health,” said Jessie Taylor, Brand Manager, CooperVision ANZ.

The CooperVision® Binocular Progressive SystemTM

The CooperVision® Binocular Progressive SystemTM debuts with MyDay® multifocal. The 3 add method uses different lens designs to optimise vision for all levels of presbyopia. These allow the eyes to work in tandem, which gives a simple initial fit and an easy progression as the near requirement increases.

Simple and Effective Fitting

CooperVison’s latest offering was created with fitting simplicity in mind. Optometrists can successfully fit 98% of patients with two pairs of MyDay® multifocal lenses or fewer when following the fitting guide.1

MyDay® multifocal fitting is incorporated into the CooperVision® OptiExpertTM app, which provides a suite of digital tools that aids clinical decision making, helps reduce chair time and increases patient success with contact lenses. This includes a new capability of refining the first fit for vision optimisation. OptiExpertTM is available to download for iOS and Android devices on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The desktop version can be used online at https://coopervision.net.au/practitioner/tools-and-calculators/optiexpert/optiexpert-web.

Clear, Optimal Vision

Under embargo until July 19, 2021, 8:00am AEST.

The innovative technology in MyDay® multifocal provides good binocularity, at both distance and near, with distance binocular visual acuity clinically similar to a wearer’s spectacle prescription.1 The lenses meet or exceed wearer vision expectations, which optometrists know is a challenge for many presbyopes. In initial studies, 86% of patients agree that MyDay multifocal met their vision needs.2

All-Day Comfort

MyDay® multifocal contact lenses are designed with premium Aquaform® Technology, which provides the all-day comfort wearers need. This combines a unique balance of high oxygen permeability, a naturally wettable material, and optimum modulus for a soft and flexible lens.

Aquaform® Technology locks moisture into the lens and keeps it soft, for a comfortable lens- wearing experience. This natural wettability can help wearers’ eyes feel less dry. It also promotes a healthy lens-wearing experience by allowing high oxygen levels to flow freely through the lenses.
