Introducing Bausch + Lomb ULTRA Contact Lenses for Presbyopia! We are excited to be able to offer this advanced contact lens technology exclusively to our Primary Eyecare patients, because these lenses are not yet widely available!
The ULTRA contacts for presbyopia provide a great new option for adults over 40 years of age who want to continue wearing contact lenses, rather than switching to eye glasses. These lenses offer superb optics at both distance and near vision, they are extremely breathable (which is an absolute necessity for the continued health of your eyes) and our patients have raved about their comfort.
Bausch + Lomb’s MoistureSeal technology advances have resulted in an exceptional combination of oxygen breathability and lubrication with these lenses. Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses maintain 95% of their moisture for a full 16 hours, and patients have reported the same end-of-day comfort levels as they experienced when they first started wearing the lenses in the morning. This is an exceptional level comfort in the world of contact lens wearers.
The ability of our eye’s internal lens to focus on near images diminishes with maturity. The lens no longer shifts the focus from far to near effortlessly as it once did, a condition called presbyopia. Prior to age forty, our eyes normally focus up close by involuntarily flexing the ciliary muscle inside each eye. Since the ciliary muscle is directly attached to the lens, the flexing and relaxing of the muscle changes the shape and focus. As we mature, the muscle still functions well, but the lens gradually loses the flexibility it once had. This loss of lens flexibility is what prevents our eyes from focusing properly up close as we age.

The 3-zone progressive design of the ULTRA contact lenses for presbyopia delivers outstanding near, intermediate, and distance vision for our patients. Before this technology existed, patients with presbyopia would often find themselves leaving their contact lenses behind in order to achieve their best possible vision through progressive lens eye glasses. As the technologies behind more accurate fitting and multifocal contact lens design advance, we are proud to offer these contacts to our presbyopic patients in addition to our high quality, brand name eyewear selections in The Optical.
Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses for presbyopia deliver areas of consistent power in the near, intermediate, and distance zones giving you an outstanding visual experience. These contacts are engineered with seamless transitions between 3 multifocal zones to provide a more natural adaptation between key distances in your vision. The result? A lens designed to achieve outstanding near, intermediate, and distance vision with clear, seamless transitions in the real world.
