Presbyopic patients need a lot from their contact lenses like reducing dryness and discomfort and providing seamless vision. This can present a distinct challenge to find the right contact lenses.
Introduced in September 2016, DAILIES TOTAL1 Multifocal, are water gradient daily replaceable contact lenses for patients with presbyopia. The water gradient technology increases the water content from 33% from the core to more than 80% at the outermost surface. This minimizes friction and helps reduce end of day dryness.
According to Alcon, an ultra-smooth hydrophilic surface gel provides outstanding comfort. Part of the Alcon multifocal product portfolio, these lenses feature SmarTears® technology and their so-called profile precision design, optimizing to a wide range of pupil sizes with a smooth progression of power gradients designed for clear and uninterrupted vision: from near to intermediate to distance.
Where to buy DAILIES TOTAL1 Multifocal
Option 1 - Buying through your Eye Care Professional
Ask your eye care professional for DAILIES TOTAL1 Multifocal contact lenses. Start with trial lenses first. Your eye care professional will make sure that your prescription is up-to-date and that the technical lens parameters satisfy the requirements of your eyes. There are many different base curves and diameters available - sometimes even within the same product line. So it is important to get a proper fitting done before deciding on a lens. Once it is a go, you can buy or reorder through your eye care practitioner. Don't forget to ask your eye care professional whether Alcon is running a rebate program.
Option 2 - Buying online
If you already have a valid prescription, buying online is easy and convenient. Plus, you can find great deals and discounts. Optix-now is monitoring the prices of DAILIES TOTAL1 Multifocal from many top contact lens retailers, so you don't have to spend a lot of time finding a great deal.
