Bausch + Lomb, a subsidiary of Bausch Health Companies Inc. (BHC), announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA for Bausch + Lomb ULTRA Multifocal for Astigmatism contact lenses, the first multifocal toric lens to be available as a standard offering in the eye care professional's fit set. The company anticipates Bausch + Lomb ULTRA Multifocal for Astigmatism will be available to eye care professionals and their patients by mid-2019.

"Eye care professionals have routinely stressed the need to have a readily available contact lens that addresses both presbyopia and astigmatism, underscoring the critical vision needs of this growing patient population. Our in-house team of scientists and contact lens designers developed Bausch + Lomb ULTRA Multifocal for Astigmatism to provide patients a lens with excellent comfort and vision that can be fit during the initial contact lens exam," said Joe Gordon, U.S. president, Bausch + Lomb.
