CooperVision has launched Biofinity Multifocal

Experience clear vision near, far, and everywhere in between!

This exciting new development gives a clear advantage over traditional bifocal contact lenses!

CooperVision's Biofinity Multifocal is a high-performance, monthly silicone hydrogel lens for people with presbyopia (the near blur of your near vision around the age of 45).

The Biofinity material is a well proven Silicon Hydrogel that provides high oxygen performance, keeping your eyes white and healthy. The material holds water within the lens making it naturally wet and it stays wet. It is very comfortably soft and is naturally resistant to the buildup of protein deposits on the lens surface.

This material has now been released  as a Multifocal contact lens. It  uses Balanced Progressive Technology with two different optical designs – D and N – to deliver superior vision at all distances – near, intermediate and distance.


Only 1% of contact lens wearer are over 45.

Shattkys believe that a large number of the remaining 99% of people over 45 will get real benefit from even occasional contact lens wear.
