By Steve Cogger
If you have been fit with the Cooper Proclear
multifocal contact lens, then you already know
how great the comfort and vision can be. Have you
stopped to wonder what makes this lens so great
and why it is considered by many to lead the
market in soft disposable multifocals?
The Cooper ProClear Multifocal contact lens
combines the all day comfort of the entire
proclear line with the versatility and optics of
the frequency 55 multifocal. By the time a person
needs multifocal lenses; their eyes are generally
drier than they might have been a few years
earlier, so the merging of the two designs makes
The proclear multifocal contact lens material was
made specifically for people with dry eyes. All
proclear lenses are made up of 62% water which
makes a very high water content lens. The
breakthrough in the material is not necessarily
its water content; rather it is the ability of
the lens to maintain its water content throughout
Most high water content lenses dehydrate rapidly
and rely on the eyes tear film to replenish the
lost water. For someone that already has dry eyes,
this creates a very uncomfortable contact lens
environment. Contact lens related dry eye can be
very noticeable at the end of the day or during
extended computer use.
With Cooper’s ProClear material, the lenses have a
high water content which makes them comfortable
initially and they retain that high water content
in most environments. For a person wearing the
Cooper ProClear multifocal contact lens, this
means it does not rely on absorbing as many tears
as other lenses to maintain a moist state. Whether
at the computer, the theatre, or the beach,
Proclear lenses stay comfortable.
Essentially, ProClear means initial comfort that
lasts throughout the day. All the ProClear
families of lenses are designed to be replaced on
a monthly basis which makes them convenient and
With this amazing material, it was only a matter
of time before Cooper released the ProClear
Mulitfocal. These soft contact lenses have a wide
range of parameters allowing most people to be
fit with sphere powers between +4.00 and -6.00.
Add powers start at +1.00 and go up to +2.50. Two
styles are made, a distance lens and a near lens.
When fit properly the Proclear multifocal has the
ability to provide end of day comfort, quality
distance vision, great computer vision, and add
for near vision.
