There Are About 100 Million People That Suffers From Presbyopia
According to studies, there are about 100 million people in the United States that suffers from presbyopia, a condition in the eye that is age-related. Such condition eventually affects those that are 45 years old and over, even those who feel like they have a perfect vision. Presbyopia is a result of a loss of elasticity within the natural lens of one’s eye that makes him/her unable to focus up close. Such condition could lead to a blurry vision when viewing near and until now, contact lenses for people that are 45 years old and over would required wearers to compromise the distance vision just for them to see clearly in near distance.
The Duette™ Multifocal Contact Lenses Provides the Best Quality of Vision
The Duette™ Multifocal Contact Lenses promise to provide the best quality of vision that any contact lens could offer. This is according to Blake Thornhill, O.D. of CarlinVision. He added that the patients over 45 years old can now achieve great vision with these new lenses, ranging from distance, near, and intermediate. The company also rave about the all-day comfort that patients will feel when wearing the contact lenses.
Approved for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Duette™ family of contact lenses is the first hybrid contact lenses that are made of a silicone hydrogel skirt, as well as a MaxVu™ rigid center that has high oxygen permeability and a class II UV blocker.
“We pride ourselves on giving our patients the latest in vision correction technology and the Duette™ Multifocal Contact Lenses allows us to do just that,”Dr. Thornhill concluded.
