To provide faster delivery to eye care professionals and their patients, CooperVision has expanded its made-to-order manufacturing at its technologically advanced facility in Scottsville, N.Y. to include all Biofinity® toric multifocal contact lenses for the U.S. and Canada. All trial lenses and six-packs of the brand’s most prescribed powers are now being produced at the site, with plans to manufacture 100% of the U.S. and Canada’s Biofinity® toric multifocal six-pack volume within the next few months. The expansion reduces delivery times by eliminating international shipping and customs clearance steps.
All orders to service other markets will continue to be manufactured at the company’s facility in the U.K.
“The process of manufacturing a contact lens that corrects for both astigmatism and presbyopia is complex, and even more so when the available prescription options are so incredibly broad,” said Doug Brayer, Director of Marketing, Frequent Replacement Brands, CooperVision. “CooperVision’s continuous innovation and investment in manufacturing has not only made lenses like Biofinity® toric multifocal possible, but also enables us to deliver practitioners and patients a highly customized product on an expedited timeline.”
With CooperVision’s made-to-order advantage, Biofinity® toric multifocal lenses are available in more than 205,000 unique prescription options1 to ensure that eye care professionals have a lens for every patient. When using CooperVision’s OptiExpert™ app or the fitting guide, Biofinity® toric multifocal has a 93% success rate on initial fitting to save chair time for both ECPs and patients.2
CooperVision Biofinity® toric multifocal combines the comfort and proven optical designs of Biofinity® toric—the most prescribed toric lens on the market3—and Biofinity® multifocal, which has also earned the trust of ECPs and wearers alike. Like all Biofinity® silicone hydrogel lenses, Biofinity® toric multifocal features CooperVision’s Aquaform® Technology, which offers superb breathability and higher moisture content to keep eyes comfortable and healthy.
