FAIRPORT, N.Y.—CooperVision has changed the name of its multifocal contact lens for emerging presbyopes, from Biomedics EP, to Proclear EP. Only the name is changing and there will be no changes made in the lenses’ manufacturing, parameters, or price, according to the company.
“The Proclear name is synonymous with comfort, and our PC Hydgrogel lens material offers many advantages to patients with presbyopia,” said Doug Brayer, marketing manager, CooperVision. “By changing the name of the lens to Proclear EP, the material advantages associated with the lens will stay top of mind.” he said.
Proclear EP lenses are made with the same omafilcon A material as Biomedics EP, the only lens material with an FDA-cleared indication associated with improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear. ■
