Bausch + Lomb Introduces Zen™ Multifocal Scleral Lens for Presbyopia

Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, announced the introduction of the Zen™ Multifocal scleral lens for Presbyopia, which will be exclusively available with Zenlens™ and Zen™ RC scleral lenses through the company’s Specialty Vision Products unit. This latest innovation will allow eye care professionals to fit presbyopic patients who have irregular and regular corneas, as well as those who suffer from ocular surface disease, such as dry eye, with ADD power ranges from +1.00 to +3.50 diopter (D) in 0.25D steps.

Building upon the Zenlens and Zen RC scleral lens technology, the new Zen multifocal scleral lens incorporates decentered optics, enabling the near power to be positioned over the visual axis. The multifocal design also offers variable near zones from 1.5 mm to 3.0 mm in 0.5 mm steps.

With the Zen Multifocal design, eye care practitioners can continue using the current Zenlens or Zen RC diagnostic sets when fitting patients. The Zenlens and Zen RC are customized scleral lenses that were designed to meet the needs of specialty vision patients and eye care professionals fitting a wide variety of corneal shapes and sizes. Both lenses use SmartCurve™ technology, which allows eye care professionals to simplify fittings by modifying only the parameter they need.
