Safilens launches new contact lens for presbyopia - AOP

Safilens has announced the launch of its new monthly silicone hydrogel contact lens for presbyopia called Open 30 Presbyo. Like its predecessor, ‘fusion 1day presbyo daily,’ the new monthly contact lens uses an innovative afocal design which is patented by Safilens as the company believes it is “a veritable revolution in contact lenses for presbyopia.
