Summary Presbyopia can be safely and effectively corrected with gas permeable (GP) multifocal (bifocal) contact lenses, but statistics indicate that they remain the most underutilized contact lenses on the market. We believe that practitioners have been “turned off of” GP multifocals due to their experiences with older generations of these lenses, which tended to be difficult to fit, with poor visual results.

Fortunately, GP multifocals have come a long way, and practitioners who avoid fitting them are missing out on an important niche market. With this booklet, we hope to show you just how far GP multifocals have come and demonstrate the ease with which they can now be fit and managed.
