Health Canada Approves New CooperVision Biofinity Toric Multifocal Contact Lenses
Health Canada has granted CooperVision approval for its new Biofinity® toric multifocal contact lenses.
The product combines the proven optical designs of CooperVision’s Biofinity® toric and Biofinity® multifocal to provide patients with both astigmatism and presbyopia vision correction. The company plans to make the lenses available to Canadian eye care professionals later this year.
“Biofinity® toric multifocal extends the reliable performance of our Biofinity® toric lenses to presbyopic patients,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Senior Director, Professional and Academic Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “Canadian eye care professionals will soon have an easy-to-fit, familiar lens design they can count on to keep current toric wearers satisfied in contact lenses for longer, and provide new astigmatic wearers an alternative to reading glasses. It’s a win-win for practitioners and their patients.”
Lens parameters and other details will be made public in the coming months.
