Multifocal Designs




A lens design fashioned in the spirit of DeCarle while including outstanding intermediate qualities. ContinuVu has the range to go from low to high adds. It does need to translate to work at its best.



The back aspheric EZFocus is just that: a put-it-on simultaneous vision bifocal for low to midrange add situations. This is the easiest beginning bifocal and affords very good computer vision.



Read-RiteThis translating design is the defined-add bifocal for all adds that do not require intermediate correction (or are willing to sacrifice some intermediate for more near vision).


Bi Expert

360 uniform thin edge technology provides less mass for increased comfort as well as excellent vision.

The Lasik design is a spherical lens designed to provide excellent comfort and optimal visual acuity that comes from a well centered lens.



This lens is designed to be used when there is a distortion of the cornea, such as pellucid marginal degeneration. The lens is fit large enough (10.8 to 11.2) to bring it to center with the optical zone rather large. This lens will usually produce the best optical situation that the patient has seen in a long time.



This is a tried and proven design to fit the cone and pellucid corneas that cannot be fit in the more standard designs. These are fit from trial sets.
