Multi-focal contact lens



Multi-focal contact lens



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1282(2), May 11



The contact lens has a fused construction with improved comfort, reduced optical distortions, such as halos, reduced discontinuities, and improved mechanical stability. The lens has an inside portion extending from a periphery of the lens over a concave side of the lens, and a second central exterior portion fused to the first portion. A central zone provides a first optic power and a first concentric band providing a second optic power. A central interface between the first and second portions has a curvature substantially the same as a curvature of the concave side. The second portion forms a junction with the first portion on a convex side of the lens substantially outside of a field of view of a user's eye. A transition profile between the junction and the central interface determines, along with the first and the second indices of refraction, the second optic power.
