Johnson & Johnson Vision announces CE mark for new  ACUVUE® OASYS MULTIFOCAL contact lens

ACUVUE® OASYS MULTIFOCAL with PUPIL OPTIMIZED™ DESIGN is the newest member of the ACUVUE® OASYS brand family for patients with presbyopia, set to launch across Europe in 2021

February 15, 2021 – Johnson & Johnson Vision1 today announced CE Mark of its latest multifocal contact lens, ACUVUE OASYS MULTIFOCAL with PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN for Europe. The lens, also approved in the US by the FDA in 2020, is the latest innovation for the Johnson & Johnson Vision multifocal contact lens portfolio for patients with presbyopia.

ACUVUE OASYS MULTIFOCAL contact lens with PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN expands the ACUVUE OASYS portfolio of products, which is unbeaten in comfort across 25 clinical trials.*  The new reusable lens includes the same PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN technology currently available in 1-DAY ACUVUE MOIST MULTIFOCAL and follows the same fit process.2 Now available in both reusable and daily disposable modalities, the technology delivers performance, fit and comfort for patients with presbyopia.2

Globally 1.9 billion people have presbyopia, with vision deterioration starting in patients from their mid-40’s.3 In addition to affecting the eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects, symptoms can include blurry vision in low light, headaches, eye fatigue and eye strain after reading.

“Although there are 50 million presbyopia patients over the age of 45 across the EMEA region who are open to wearing contact lenses, fewer than 10% of this group are currently wearing a multifocal contact lens to correct the condition,4,5” said Sandra Rasche, Area Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Vision Care, Johnson & Johnson Medical GmbH, “The ACUVUE OASYS MULTIFOCAL with PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN will offer an exciting solution for these patients, using a blend of technologies for better comfort and clearer vision at all distances.2” 

ACUVUE OASYS MULTIFOCAL with PUPIL OPTIMIZED DESIGN will launch across Europe in 2021.
