Mastering the Simplified Multifocal Contact Lens Fitting Process

Dr. Milana Matz

In the past, multifocal contact lens fitting was time-consuming and involved a great deal of trial-and-error to get an acceptable fit.

In this final webinar in our series on presbyopia, Milana Matz, OD of North Suburban Vision Consultants in Deerfield, IL, will walk us through Alcon’s “Simplified Multifocal CL Fitting Process”.

This process has resulted in high rates of fit success, including 80% success with 1 lens per eye, and 96% success with 2 lenses or less per eye!

Dr. Matz will review the process, and several real-life case studies of presbyopic patients fit into multifocals.

We hope to see you there!

Toric Multifocal Contacts: Do They Really Work?

Have you experienced the frustration of toric multifocal lenses that don’t adequately solve the unique optical challenges of your astigmatic presbyopic patients?

Maybe a minus distance over-refraction improved distance vision but ruined the crisp near vision your patient loved, or perhaps you increased add power to improve the patient’s near vision but caused distance vision to suffer.

These struggles can make toric multifocal contact lens fittings painful and time-consuming, leading you to question whether the technology even works and worry about your ability to deliver what you’ve promised: functional vision at all ranges. Does this resonate with you?

In this ODwire.org Webinar, Dr. Doug Becherer explains why these struggles may be happening and how the SpecialEyes 54 Multifocal Toric, a unique pupil-optimized lens with customizable optics, can be a solution for you and your patients.
