Alden expands Astera parametersNovember 1, 2013
Alden Optical, a manufacturer of custom made-to-order soft and gas permeable contact lenses announced today that it has expanded the parameter range of Astera Multifocal Toric.
Eye care professionals can now address even higher demands for near correction with the addition of a third ADD Profile design.
The new ADD profile also allows Alden to refine its fitting recommendation for all three Astera ADD profiles for improved precision with near vision correction.
Specifically, ADD Profile 1 is now recommended to +1.50D, Profile 2 from +1.75D to 2.25D and Profile 3 for ADD requirements of +2.50D or greater.
“Astera Multifocal Toric has been well received by practitioners, particularly for its toric precision and outstanding distance vision,” said Tom Shone, president, Alden Optical. “The one request has been for “a higher ADD” which we are now excited to offer.”
