The NaturalVue (etafilcon A) Multifocal (NVMF) 1 Day contact lens, developed by US-based medical device company Visioneering Technologies Inc. has received an Award for Excellence at O=MEGA19.
NVMF was selected as the best in innovation and technology among some of the industry’s strongest competitors including Alcon’s Dailies Total 1 contact lenses and Bausch + Lomb’s Ultra for Astigmatism. The awards were judged by an expert independent panel consisting of Professor Fiona Stapleton, PhD, UNSW; Steven Daras, teacher, optical dispenser and course coordinator TAFE Digital; Richard Banks, independent optometrist; and Lyndal Frollano, former Creative Director of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine.
NVMF contact lenses feature Visioneering’s innovative Neurofocus Optics Technology which employs a patented extended depth of focus design. The innovative NVMF lens design allows it to be used for both myopic progression control and presbyopia.
Visioneering’s Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Tony Sommer commented, “We are extremely proud to win the Award for Excellence for contact lenses at O=MEGA19. NaturalVue Multifocal is a significant addition to the myopia toolkit for optometrists, and we thank the judges for recognising our technological edge.”
Dr Peg Achenbach, FAAO, Vice President of Professional Services and Clinical Science, was on hand to accept the award on behalf of Visioneering. Dr Achenbach was at O=MEGA19 to deliver a talk on the topic of Extended Depth of Focus Contact Lenses – A Novel Approach to Myopia Control.
