Alcon Incorporated Announces Encouraging Results from Presbyopia Study
Jun 11 15
Alcon Incorporated has announced encouraging results from a new study comparing DAILIES AQUACOMFORT PLUS Multifocal presbyopia-correcting contact lenses to single vision lenses fitted for monovision correction of presbyopia. Researchers found greater areas of focus in the intermediate and near zones for multifocal contact lens vision correction in comparison to monovision correction. The study compared DAILIES AQUACOMFORT PLUS Multifocal to nelfilcon-A single vision contact lenses fitted as monovision contact lenses. Area of focus for the distance, intermediate and near regions were calculated from the individual binocular defocus curves. Additional assessments included high- and low-luminance visual acuity, contrast sensitivity and stereoacuity. Using defocus curves, larger areas-of-focus in the near and intermediate regions were demonstrated for multifocal contact lenses compared with monovision contact lens correction (p=0.007 & p<0.0001, respectively). Further, significantly better stereoacuity was reported with the multifocal contact lenses as compared to monovision.

May 25 15
Alcon, Inc. announced encouraging results from a new study with CLEAR CARE cleaning and disinfecting solution in patients with contact lens papillary conjunctivitis. This randomized, controlled, investigator-masked, parallel group, multi-site study was conducted in 128 symptomatic contact lens wearers with mild to severe investigator-related palpebral roughness who were habitually using a biguanide-preserved multi-purpose solution. The subjects who used CLEAR CARE Solution during the study showed a significant improvement in lid papillae and symptoms compared to the subjects in the biguanide-preserved multi-purpose solution control group.
